2. Eat Greens
Go for dark, fresh leafy greens to alkalize your body. These type of greens like arugula and kale are chocked full of chlorophyll, minerals and vitamins. Guaranteed to deliver quality nutrients to your blood.
3. Breathe in, Breathe Out
We are typically inundated with what is expect for us to do in our daily lives. For instance, house cleaning, meeting deadlines and paying bills that we take simple things like breathing for granted.
Think about it? When was the last time you took a mindful breath? So, the next time as you gave yourself a break, remember to take a deep breath in and breathe out. Need a breathing routine that is easy to follow and beneficial to your health? Check out this post!
Do you love to dance? If you enjoy it why not dance every day?! Doing so for at least 30 minutes improves the condition of your heart and lungs and boosts your confidence.
If you not into dancing and prefer another exercise, find one and do that regularly!
5. Go organic
It is a common fact that ingesting heavily chemical sprayed crops are harmful for your health. These types of chemicals induce a plethora of health issues from respiratory illnesses to cancer.
Go for organic produce and limit the intake of processed foods you would find in boxes and packages. If the price tag scares you, consider the average cost for radiation therapy without insurance. It can be anywhere from a whopping $10,000-$50,000 or more. Prevention is key!
6. Score plenty of sleep
Sleep is so restorative for your health. In fact, the more sleep you get the better you can perform your daily tasks and commitments.
Adults need an average of 7 to 8 hours of sleep per night while babies can sleep up to 16 hours a day. Young kids need about 10 hours while teens need at least 9.
To attain the maximum benefits of sleep, be sure to take the necessary steps to make that happen! Create an alarm reminder on your phone to alert you to wind down and cut off the distractions.
Get comfortable in bed, take a few deep breaths, think of good thoughts and close your eyes. You will be back in slumber in no time!
Go barefoot and step outside on the soil! By planting your bare feet on the earth, you are absorbing natural electrons from the Earth into your body.
Regularly grounding is so healing because you are reconnecting with a natural powerful energy.
The human body runs on an electrical current. The Earth’s negative charges create a stable bioelectrical habitat for the normal functioning of all the systems in the body.
The best part about it is that is can be done at any time and it is free!
8. Spend quality time with your loved ones
It is so easy to caught up in the daily rut of work and/or school, that we tend to forget how quickly time flies. Make it a habit to enjoy quality time with those who matter to you.
Spending time with family has heartfelt benefits. In fact, six years of research conducted by the University of California proved that loneliness foretells death.
The study centered on 1600 elderly participants. It revealed that of the seniors who passed away, 14% had regular visitors while in contrast, 23% who had no family or friends who visited them.
Elderly people are most likely than younger ones to emphasize the importance of connections. While there are many variables for the observation like generational differences, we can all agree that quality time is needed.
Some of the benefits include nurturing positive relationships, building self-esteem and creating memories.
9. Do what you love!
What is your passion in life? Do you enjoy writing or skydiving? Whatever speaks to your heart, do more of what you love.
10. Be humbly grateful
Take a moment to stop what you are doing and recount what you are grateful for. One of the books by Rhonda Byrne called The Magic discusses the importance of counting your blessings.
One of the suggestions was to list 10 blessings and why you are grateful for them. In a matter of a month, as I counted my blessings I attracted so many positive opportunities. A grateful heart almost always is rewarded by the Universe in some way.
BONUS! 11. Smile more!
A smile always looks and feels great. When you smile, all the good chemical messengers like dopamine, serotonin, and endorphins are flushed into the bloodstream making your body relax and lowers your blood pressure. So smile and do it often!
