  • 1. Make your phone or computer background a motivational quote.
    That way, every time you check your phone, you’ll be motivated to get moving.

  • 2. Whiten nails with toothpaste.
    We’ve all heard the one about toothpaste getting rid of zits, but did you know it also can be used to whiten yellowing nails? It works! Add in a few drops of lemon juice—a natural bleaching agent—for extra effect.

  • 3. Need to sleep? Eat a kiwi
    We know they’re delicious, but it research also suggests that eating kiwi fruit may have significant benefits for sleep.

  • 4. Not feeling great? Give your exercise a 10 minute trial.
    If you still aren’t feeling hot after 10 minutes of blood-pumping, you can stop. However, odds are you’ll keep going, since exercise is a natural mood booster.

  • 5. Always keep a packed gym bag.
    In your car or under your desk at work. That way, when the urge to work out hits, you’ll have no excuses.

  • 6. Whiten teeth with a banana peel.
    It might sound odd, but used banana peels can whiten your teeth! Rub the inside of a peel along your top and bottom teeth for about a minute each, and let sit for around 10 minutes. From there, grab a dry toothbrush and start brushing. Doing this a few times a week can significantly lighten teeth as well as any whitening kit, without any of the added chemicals.

  • 7. Eating at home? Use an appetizer-sized plate.
    Health studies show it helps trick your mind into thinking there’s more food, which can result is eating less.

  • 8. If you’re a breakfast person, eat it within 30 minutes of waking up.
    Studies show this can do wonders to boost metabolism.

  • 9. Run wrists under water.
    Having trouble cooling down after a workout? Run your wrists under cold water to instantly lower your body’s temperature and stop sweat.

  • 10. Use weight-loss apps.
    There are so many apps that can help you count calories, lose weight, and keep track of what you’re eating.

  • 11. Pay yourself every time you exercise.
    Leave $1 in a jar each time you workout and you’ll end up looking and feeling great—and having money to splurge on something fun.

  • 12. Plan ahead.
    Lay out every single thing you want to wear to the gym in the morning the night before where you can see it, from socks to sports bra—this will cut time in the morning, and give you a little extra motivation.

  • 13. Use your commute to relax.
    Commuting doesn’t have to be stressful: If you take public transportation, download a meditation track or app, close your eyes, and focus on breathing.

  • 14. Shop on a full stomach.
    Never go grocery shopping when you’re super-hungry. Why? Because everything looks good, so you’ll undoubtedly start throwing in items you normally might not buy.

  • 15. Look up “how to make your own cleaning supplies.”
    Seriously, do it now. It’ll not only save you money, but it’ll cut your exposure to chemicals—win-win!

  • 16. Scour the internet.
    For healthy recipes and workout tips, and create various boards to keep them all in one place.

  • 17. Use YouTube.
    Never use your gym membership? You’re wasting money! Cancel it immediately and get into the healthy habit of working out at home using the many free fitness (and highly effective) tutorials available on YouTube. Seriously, you can find instructional videos on everything from ab workouts to Zumba.

  • 18.Smell an orange.
    Several studies have found that the scent of oranges can reduce stress, improve mood, and make you feel way more awake. Try eating a fresh orange for breakfast every morning (and inhaling its scent), or dab some orange oil on your wrists a few times a week.

  • 19. Need a boost? Take a shot of liquid chlorophyll.
    Chlorophyll is the dark green pigment found in plants, but it also has amazing benefits for humans. It has a similar molecular structure to hemoglobin (the substance that’s responsible for transporting oxygen around the body), and just one tablespoon a day can boost red blood cells, improve oxygen, increase energy, help body odor, protect from cancer, help regulate bowel movements, and increase magnesium, vitamins, folic acid, iron, calcium and protein. Oh, and it’s avaialble in all health foods stores, and some supermarkets.
