22 Healthy Ways to Welcome 2022

Dr. Lydia & Dr. Connor's favorite healthy habits for a balanced life


1. Never drink coffee on an empty stomach in the morning


2. Ditch plastic food containers for glass - reheating plastic releases toxic phthalates and BPA which are endocrine disruptors


3. Swap your desk chair for a standing desk and/or yoga ball


4. Try drinking up two-thirds of your body weight in ounces of water


5. Eat within 30 minutes of waking


6. Start replacing your products with non-toxic skin care & make-up - Dr. Lydia's favorite brands are Crunchi and BeautyCounter


7. Read food labels - if you can't pronounce it or it sounds like it was made in a lab, best to avoid


8. Get fresh air every day, especially if you work from home - a quick walk around the block gives you movement, vitamin D, and change of scenery
