  6. Stretch. To improve flexibility and relieve aches, take three mornings this week to do a quick, gentle stretching sequence before you move on with your day.
  7. Eat a salad for lunch every day. It'll help with your weight-loss goals but will also help you get the nutrients you need to stay healthy. Here are 10 Winter salads to try.
  8. Take a break. Take time to de-stress, and have fun a few days this week with these stress-relieving tips.
  9. Say no to empty drink calories. At happy hour, stick to one (or no) low-calorie alcoholic drink, and order club soda or water for the rest of the time.
  10. Get more sleep. Getting better sleep gives you more energy, boosts your immune system, and helps you lose weight. Aim for at least seven hours every night this week. Check out our 20 simple ways to get better sleep for help.
