6 Easy Steps To Start Today
How often do you hear people saying that they wished they were healthy so they could truly enjoy their lives every single day? The thing is, it’s actually very easy if you follow some simple mind, dietary and physical rules. We would like to share a few tips that could help you to introduce and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
1. Positive Mental Attitude
We highly recommend having a Positive Mental Attitude (known as PMA) first thing in the morning. There are courses that teach you how to achieve this, however start with some basics thoughts that anyone can do, today. As soon as you wake up, be thankful for another beautiful day and visualise it going smoothly, full of good news, laughter and success. It´s your intention which makes your day become wonderful and productive, so remember YOU ARE the glass half FULL, not half empty!
2. Start Your Day With Juice
Start your day with a glass of warm lemon water, what could be more simple and quick than some warm water with half a squeezed lemon! Lemon water helps to maintain the body’s pH balance, digestive system and also contains antibacterial properties. Just be mindful to brush your teeth once you have finished it, as we all know, lemon is acidic to teeth!
Morning is the best time for drinking fruit or vegetable juices as they will assimilate more efficiently on an empty stomach. There are so many different recipes available nowadays and juicing is the best natural way to boost your immune system and health in all areas. See our recipes on Facebook or Instagram for some great ideas for healthy juices.
3. Take Time Out To Meditate & Be Mindful
A quick morning meditation is a fantastic way to boost your motivation, along with your spiritual and energetic levels. Go on YouTube and type “10 mins morning meditation” and you will be surprised how many easy and interesting things you will find. Try to stick to it and you will definitely see the difference within one month, we guarantee you!
4. Power Walk Your Way To Health
Any sort of physical exercise (yoga, running, dancing, gym or even power walking) on a regular basis helps you to maintain a healthy physical body, supplies your muscle tissues with oxygen and strengthens your endurance level, all great for contributing to the immune system. The weekly recommended amount of exercise for an adult is 150 minutes of moderate exercise, such as brisk walking, yoga and even pushing a lawnmower!
5. Live, Love, LAUGH!
A laugh a day is all it takes. Try reading five jokes a day is another little tip we would like to give to you. Laughter is another natural way to boost your health and mood. It helps to release the endorphins, your body’s natural ‘happy’ chemicals. Laughter is known to reduce stress levels and increases the blood flow, which can decrease the chances of heart attacks. It also helps exercise the facial muscles, keeping you looking younger too!
6. You Are What You Eat, REALLY.
A healthy diet is one of the key parts to having a healthy body. There are so many articles, research studies and recommendations on this matter. However, we are all different and not every diet is suitable for everyone. A balanced diet is the key! More fresh vegetables, fruits, pulses, nuts and seeds will benefit you the most. Try to purchase local and seasonal products. Not only will they be better for you, but you will also help to sustain local farmers and small businesses. The addition of any superfoods into your diet will boost your vitamin intake. Where possible use real food for this instead of supplements. Wheatgrass juice is one of the most nutritious superfoods that exist on the market, plus it is easy to add to your daily routine.
