It’s not always easy to recognize a bad habit for what it is or to recognize when someone is dishing out not-so-great advice.

You might be doing several things that may not be as good for you as some social media influencers would have you believe.

Recommendations from non-experts

Who is giving advice? Resist following advice from people who aren’t experts on the topics, especially regarding health and wellness, said Serena Poon, C.N., a celebrity chef, certified nutritionist and reiki master in Los Angeles.

Advice such as dietary recommendations or treatments for conditions should only come from experts. If an influencer boasts about immediate results or promises big change, it’s wise to be wary.

Habits that don’t make you feel good

Everyone is different. Some habits just aren’t going to work for you—and that’s OK. Try new things and drop a habit if it doesn’t feel good, Poon said.

“Health and well-being is truly an individualized journey, and it often takes deep work to develop habits that will offer sustainable health,” Poon said.

Now you know what you shouldn’t do, it’s time to look at the things you perhaps should do in your healthy girl year.

Spend more time outside

Spending time outside increases levels of vitamin D as well, an element essential for immune and bone health. Yet many of us don’t get enough of it, Poon said.

Sitting in front of a sunny window isn’t enough. Go outside. Take a walk in the woods. A lack of sunlight can contribute to fatigue, affect your mental health and even affect your libido.

Eat healthier

Ditch the food obsessions, counting calories and eliminating certain foods as part of the new you. Eating healthy is another healthy girl habit worth embracing.

Define what healthy food actually means. Some foods that are marketed as healthy—vegan meat is one example—are highly processed, Poon said. Read the labels and compare nutritional information between the different brands.

“Fruits and vegetables contain really amazing nutrients, antioxidants and phytonutrients that support health on many levels,” Poon said. “Eating a wide variety of fruits and vegetables will help you eat the widest variety of these healthy compounds.”
