Great Health Habits

  • Movement of your body – Every morning you should do movement exercises. Moving your joints creates feedback for your brain. It’s like a magnet generating energy. Slowly flex, extend, and rotate your limbs and spine to gain flexibility. Learn some basic yoga moves and do them every day first thing in the morning.
  • Eat breakfast – Your blood sugar level needs stabilization; don’t confuse your system by skipping the first meal of the day. The first meal starts your metabolism and makes it easier to burn calories the rest of the day. Eat small meals every 2-3 hours.
  • Time – Use time to your advantage. Don’t let time rush you to stress. Use time to schedule your day and be productive. Being on time reduces stress and gives you a sense of being in sync with the universe.
  • Physical activity – We are designed to move about; therefore sitting still for hours on end is not healthy. Every half hour, take a short walk or do some physical activity. It’s that simple.
  • Eat every 2-3 hours – You want to eat small meals every 2-3 hours to keep your metabolism in high gear and to keep your blood sugar in optional range.
  • Have a social life line – Maintain social relationships that you can depend on as a life line. Be there for someone and have someone be there for you. Always know who’s got your back and be happy to throw you a life line.
  • Make your life simple – Things like what color shirt am I going to wear and where should we eat lunch are silly and waste our decision making reserves. Program your life by doing the things you like automatically. Get things that need to be done off of your check list and free up your mind.
  • Set your biological clock – The sun rises and sets every day. There is an order to the universe. Your biological clock needs to work on a regular schedule. If you wake up at 6 a.m. you should be in bed by 10 p.m., we do best with 8 hours of sleep.
  • Embrace organic, unprocessed foods – Don’t eat food that contains pesticides, hormones, and drugs. If its not organic it will contain much higher pesticide levels.
