We’re well into 2019 already, which means a lot of people have already given up on their New Year’s resolutions.

Every year, people tell themselves they’re going to eat healthier, exercise more, drink less, quit smoking, etc. Unfortunately, it’s just not that easy to change your habits. If you have a busy schedule, it’s hard to completely update your lifestyle.

But it doesn’t have to be that hard! Just take it one step at a time. Instead of trying to overhaul your workout routine, your diet, and your other “unhealthy” habits start with just one.

Let’s begin with healthy eating.

It might seem like a daunting task, but it’s actually pretty simple. Don’t try to change everything about your eating habits — just slowly add more healthy foods and cut out more unhealthy foods.

Keep your fridge stocked with healthy fruits and veggies, that way when you go to look for a snack, it’ll be easy to grab something fresh. Check out these 20 awesome products that will help you stay healthy this year!
