Chic Cleansing: Fashionable Ways to Start Healthy Habits

As college students, life gets pretty hectic. Hence, we tend to get off (or really never even get on) track with our plans of keeping healthy lifestyles. Here are some fashionable incentives to start implementing some healthy habits into your life!

1. Get a Pretty, Reusable Water Bottle

This is the simplest, and one of the most important ways to improve your health. Constantly buying water bottles when you’re out gets expensive and inconvenient, and all that plastic is also very environmentally unfriendly.  Water bottles like this S’well one can be a both chic and eco-conscious way to start accessorizing your daily ensembles and to help you feel better.

2. Read some GirlBoss (or BoyBoss!) Books

Reading something motivational everyday will inevitably lift your mood. Instead of endlessly scrolling through your social media accounts every night, check out some inspiring books here to start adding some stylish content to your reading list!

3. Fashionable Fitness Clothes

We all know by now that the athleisure trend is here to stay, but that doesn’t mean it’s an excuse to buy cute workout clothes and never work out. Get a sports bra that also makes you feel good like this one. Repeat after me: You have enough lululemon leggings. However, you definitely should buy more stylish sportswear as motivation to workout–no, to actually workout in.

4. Go out for some healthy, Instagrammable food

Acai bowls, avocado toast, and veggie-packed grain bowls not only look pretty on the outside, but they’re so good for your insides too. Make an excuse to go get brunch and an Instagram this weekend. It’s for your health. Check out this list for some inspiration.

5. Invest in Aesthetically Pleasing Journals and Notebooks

Emotional health is just as important as physical health. Get your thoughts together this season through journaling and planning out your life in some beautiful looking notebooks. Being organized is always on trend. Plan your days simply and effectively with a planner like this and relax your mind by writing in a journal once a day. If you want a more creative way to streamline your life in style, design your own bullet journal

Self-care is so important and always in style. Start off your Spring season with some time for self-love. Let’s keep our habits haute and healthy!
