10 Steps to Healthier you

March 3, 2016

Here are 10 holistic steps which can make a significant positive changes in your life. I would like to make it so simple for you to understand and implement them in your daily routine.

  1. Stay fit and live a wellness lifestyle  

There is nothing that will do more good for you in terms of being vibrantly healthy, energetic, and youthful than a regular fitness program. Develop a well-rounded program that includes strength training, aerobics, and stretching. Make this program a top priority in your life and stay committed to it. Rest and sleep, pure water, clean fresh air, healthy amounts of sunshine, and fresh wholesome foods are all essential ingredients to vibrant health. Try to select foods as close to the way nature produced them as possible. ( if possible organic). 90% of  your food should be cooked an home, as it is essential for your health.

2. Eat one Green salad or juice per day

Juice may help your body to absorb a certain nutrients often bound up with insoluble fibers. The specific combinations of fruits and veggies in this juice have helpful synergy. For example, consuming a vitamin C rich food like apple and lemon at the same time as a plant-based iron source, like kale, can help our body absorb more of the iron.

Beyond the specific benefits of the vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients locked away in each ingredient, the act of juicing them may have additional advantages for certain individuals.

A recent study found that men who drank fresh vegetable juice with ingredients like kale, compared to commercial vegetable juice, had significantly lower total and LDL (bad) cholesterol levels after just 4 weeks.

3. Simplify your life and slow down

Find joy in simple pleasures. Breathe deeply, smell the flowers, talk to the animals, spend time with a horse, sing with the birds, be with friends, greet the sun, scratch behind your dog’s or kitty’s ear, and make someone smile. Make your life as easy and simple as you can. Eat simple and clean food, eat mindfully in order to enjoy your food and the moment.

4. Live in a present moment and wake up earlier

Today is a new day. There is no other day like today. It is unique and special. It is also an opportunity to begin anew, to experience a clean slate, a new beginning — in this very moment. Living in the moment is different from living for the moment. Don’t compare the present with the past. Be fully present each moment — be mindful — and free yourself from the past. Try to wake up as earlier as you can in order to  enjoy that pure energy of the morning. During your morning hours you can create and plan your day. While your family is sleeping you are able to do something for yourself without any distribution.

5. Increase your water intake 

It is estimated more than 75% of people are chronically dehydrated…assume your one of them. Dehydration can cause headaches, chronic fatigue, toxicity, digestive issues, pre-mature aging and high cholesterol. Drink at least 2 litres of pure water a day.

6. Stop ALL Negative self talk

You will not completely stop having negative thoughts at first. They creep in and that is normal. Self-criticism and negative thoughts turn to negative energy which does no good for you on a physical, mental, emotional or energetic level. Help more people around the world. There are many places which need our support and love.

7. Switch off your TV, Laptop or phone and take it Outdoor or get moving

DO something you enjoy each day for at least 30 minutes. Go for a hike, walk your dogs, take a yoga class, etc. Whatever you choose, do something that motivates you and releases you from the daily grind.

8. Express your gratitude for everything you have in your life

Grateful people are more happier people. If you analyse your life you understand that you are fortunate, even if you do not have something, but you still more fortunate that other.

9. Cook 90% of your meals at home

Cooking helps us to open the heart, when you cook for your family you nourish them with your love and energy.

10.  And finally, breathe deeply!

Unfortunately a side effect of modern society is low shallow chest breathing. Breathing is responsible for flushing toxins, a healthy lymphatic system, circulation and the quickest way to stimulate our parasympathetic nervous system. When we breathe deeply we think clearly!

Wishing you a very happy and a healthy life!
