You and your body are going to love it!

Health has become so much more complicated and political than it needs to be.

Low-carb or low-fat? Weightlifting or running? Should you eat like a caveman or follow the latest science found in pills and shakes? What about counting calories, Intermittent Fasting, and this thing called HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training)?

The result is that average people who just want to get healthy are left confused and not sure what to do.

There are however some easy healthy habits that you can apply on a daily basis to build a solid foundation of great health - and we are going to give them in easy but powerful bite-sized tasks over the next 30 days.

That is what this 30-day challenge is all about. It is for everyone, especially those who just want to live a healthier life without needing to do a complete overhaul of their entire lifestyle.

Even if you already have a health plan that works for you. No problem, keep doing what you are doing! These daily tasks will be complimentary to any plan and not interfere.

A healthy lifestyle is about so much more then following a diet plan and killing yourself in the gym. Your health is the sum of parts and you are what you repeatedly do.

There are many small changes you can make to your life that will improve it. Change does not need to be massive and dramatic to move forward with your health.

The 30 DAYS OF HEALTHY HABITS is designed to help keep you you focused daily on living a great life.

We focus holistically on 4 key areas in the challenge. How you can EAT, MOVE, THINK and SLEEP better. Making improvements in all areas is the key to your vitality.

While we know of many more than just 30 habits to help you live a great life, these are our top 30 that we feel will help you kickstart 2016!

 We believe you will see value in the actions and are sure you are going to learn some things about yourself and your lifestyle. You can always revisit for a recap while you take it one day at a time.

When you sign up at Ultimate You each day you will be sent a task and link to the detail of the task and some tips on how to implement it.

The official launch date is Jan 4 2016 but the beauty is that you can start this 30-Day Challenge absolutely anytime. So if you have only seen this article after the 4th you have not missed a thing. Start today at Ultimate You  

From Jan 4 - 2 Feb each daily task will also be published on Health24 and Ultimate You
