Everyone wants to be more healthy, right? What does that mean exactly? It means many things to many people, but if you are confused about where to start...you can do some simple things to ensure that you feel as fit and healthy as possible, starting today. These are 5 simple changes that you can make to your lifestyle to improve your overall wellness. In my FREE 7 Day Challenge...we will dive deeper into these 5 Simple Steps to Boost Health and Wellness. Easy things that you can start today!
1. Sleep More
It is no secret that sleep is important. You may have noticed that sleeping helps you to avoid that tired feeling all day, and helps you to concentrate more. Sleep is also a chance for your body to rejuvenate, and plenty of things still go on in your body’s various systems while you sleep, this includes resetting your hormones, and going into the 12-Hour window for natural detoxification and fat burning.
If you don’t get enough sleep, it’s not only highly likely that you’ll be tired the next day, but your health can suffer too.
Being tired makes us emotional, stressed, limits our concentration, and can even make us more susceptible to illnesses. It is not unusual to make poor food choices after not getting enough shut-eye. Try to get around 7-8 hours per night for the best benefits that sleep has to offer. Any hour of sleep you get before midnight, counts as two, since your go into such a deep sleep! Get to bed before midnight!
2. Breathe More
It may seem like an unusual suggestion, but do you ever take the chance to just sit and breathe? There are a lot of breathing exercises and even with just one session of concentrating on your breathing will leave you feeling more relaxed.
Over time if you do this at least once a day, you’ll find that you feel calmer, less emotional, and just generally better. If you feel you just don't have the time to site quietly, spend just five minutes practicing deep breathing...breathing deeply through your nose and then exhaling with the lips slightly parted, the breath going over the teeth. I discuss many breathing and 5 minute methods in my 21-Day Cleanse.
Meditation is a good time to try out breathing techniques. Take a few minutes to add a calming blend into your essential oil diffuser...like lavender and cedarwood and just BREATHE!
3. Eat More
I know you love that I listed this! Before we agree to "eat more", let's dissect this first...for some reason, people feel that they are too busy to cook a proper meal each day. This results in grabbing a quick meal on the way home from their local fast food place or they get frozen dinners that can be thrown in the oven or microwave when they get home. While these shortcuts may seem to save time, ultimately, both are very unhealthy choice to make.
Ready meals, processed food, and junk food are loaded with sugar, fat, salt and many more calories than our bodies need. Fast food also tends to be heavily processed and as it is often fried, the nutritional goodness for our bodies is practically non-existent.
Try to cut back on these unhealthy foods and instead cook MORE FOOD from scratch. It is not difficult to prepare a healthy chicken breast with vegetables on the side for example and this is a far healthier option. Need help in this area? Not sure what to eat or how to make it for it to be healthy and nutritious?
4. Move More
Instead of putting off exercise claiming that you don’t have enough money to afford a gym, or enough time to actually go to the gym, just take a step out of your front door. You can walk anywhere and this is completely free.
Involve the whole family and go for a walk around the block or to the park if there is one nearby. There is absolutely no excuse for not going for a walk and you have plenty to gain from it too.
First of all, you’ll be able to enjoy gentle exercise that will still give you a good cardio workout to keep your heart pumping. You will also be able to enjoy some fresh air, which is essential for the brain and muscles.
Make it a nightly ritual that takes places right after dinner.
5. Drink More
We’re not suggesting that you go to the bar and get drunk - quite the opposite actually. You should really be drinking around 8 glasses of water per day and if you don’t do that and you suffer from headaches, then I'm willing to bet that you’re dehydrated and need some more liquid in your body. I recommend that most people drink at least half of their body weight in ounces...so if you weigh 150 pounds, that's 75 ounces of water.
Every time you go into your kitchen, try to remember to have a glass of water. Whether you’re making breakfast, lunch or dinner or if you’re just grabbing a snack, using this as a prompt to drink a glass of water is an effective way to remember to stay hydrated. Try adding a drop or two of lemon or grapefruit essential oil for a delicious and detoxifying way to keep water interesting!
This will improve your overall health and can even have a positive effect on your appearance by improving the quality of your skin!
