Secret habits of the rich and famous

Whether it’s their healthy diet and days spent with personal trainers to ensure that they’re looking their best or the interior decorators and “lifestyle gurus” who maximise the potential of their living spaces, there’s no doubt that celebrities have something that not all of us can afford. However, with a few lifestyle changes we can easily emulate the professionals celebrities hire and transform our own lives without needing to break the bank. Here are a few tips to help you on your way:

Quality sleep to fit with your schedule

The average person should spend between 7 and 9 hours a night sleeping. This is to ensure that their body has enough time to rejuvenate tired cells and helps them to feel bright-eyed and bushy-tailed in the morning. However, a recent blog post from Bedstar detailing the sleeping habits of successful individuals from Margaret Thatcher to Michael Phelps shows that adapting your sleeping pattern to your individual needs may be a vital key to maximising your potential. Whether that’s getting up an hour earlier to fit in a gym class before work or grabbing a nap during the day, it is still vital to make sure the sleep you do get is quality sleep.

Maximise your wardrobe potential

Most of us will be tempted to buy products we wouldn’t otherwise because they’re in the sale regardless of what they look like. Consequently when we open up our wardrobes to choose our outfits for the day ahead (given that, unfortunately, we don’t have a personal stylist to make these crucial decisions for us) we’re overwhelmed by choice. It is worthwhile to take the time to consider what colours, shapes, and materials work best on you. Picking pieces which easily work well together and are flattering will reduce that outfit stress so you can start the day on a positive note.

Streamline your refrigerator

As we spend more time in the office or, travelling to and from the office there is less time to spend on doing a big food shop. Research shows that we’re now much more likely to pop into a shop on the way home and grab something. Consequently, it’s vital to ensure that the food we’re grabbing really is good for us and that we’re not sacrificing our health for convenience. Spending a moment to read the fine print on the nutritional information can be a lifesaver. Don’t be fooled by the information that gives you a healthy percentage of your daily recommended allowance if you only eat 1% of it - especially if you’re planning on scoffing the lot!
