Guide to Healthy Living:
1) Eat whole foods: This is probably the easiest natural cure to good health. These foods are not processed, preserved or packaged.
They are fresh foods like, vegetables, fruits, meat, fish and poultry. You will find these foods at the perimeter of your local grocery store.
In addition to being fresh, whole foods contain high nutritional values. They are packed full of important vitamins and minerals, so the health benefits you experience are numerous.
To ensure you receive these important nutrients, it’s best to eat your food raw, lightly sautéed or steamed. Lightly preparing your meals, preserves the health-promoting vitamins and minerals.
2) Select organic food, as often as you can. Once again, a task that’s super easy to do and organic food is easily affordable, especially since you’re saving so much money from not buying packaged food.
Organic farmers care about the soil the food is grown on, the environment surrounding the food and the individuals eating the food. These farmers do not use pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, antibiotics, growth hormones or growth stimulants. You experience immediate health benefits by not eating these harmful chemicals.
3) Stock your kitchen with healthy cooking staples. Gradually add new items each week. Spend a week end making healthy homemade kitchen staples, so whenever you’re having a really busy day, you can whip up a healthy meal in a snap.
When you know your kitchen is well stocked with healthy food items, you will refrain from grabbing a quick dinner at the local fast food restaurant, where you’ll find extremely unhealthy, heavily processed and preserved food.
4) Avoid all products containing harmful chemicals. Look at the labels to identify these products. This includes products you use in and around your homes, and the products you use on your bodies. These products contain harmful chemicals and are extremely harmful to your health.
Use vinegar, baking soda and salt to clean anything in and around your home and don’t put anything on your body you wouldn’t eat. Think about all the money you’ll save, vinegar, baking soda and salt are some of the cheapest items in the grocery store.
5) If you choose to supplement, always select supplements that are whole or natural. Supplementation can assure you get the necessary vitamins and minerals you need.
Whole or natural supplements are derived from food sources, so your body successfully absorbs the ever important vitamins and minerals. As opposed to supplements derived from chemicals, your body has a very difficult time absorbing these supplements and simply turns it into expensive urine.
Look for supplements that indicate whole or natural on the label, along with the actual food sources it’s derived from.
6) Always select healthy drinks. It’s important to keep hydrated the healthy way. Choose water, herbals teas or flavoured coffees (keep away from sugary, creamy varieties).
There are so many ways you can get creative by sprucing up plain water or making your own herbal iced teas. Always sweeten your drinks with a little stevia.
7) Get some daily exercise. You want your heart to get a good workout each day.
If your job requires you to sit all day, go for a quick walk to stretch your legs, every hour. Perform a mini workout with lunges, squats or push-ups against the wall. Stand every time you get a phone call. Walk to your colleague’s office instead of using the phone. Go for a stress reducing walk at lunch time. Use the stairs instead of the elevator.
There are so many ways we can implement short bursts of exercise through-out the day. Combined, you get a great workout.
8) Always select environment friendly products and dispose your garbage properly. Simple and so significant.
There’s nothing more frustrating than driving down a beautiful road only to see someone’s garbage on the side of the road. There are so many eco-friendly tasks we can do every day that will help clean our environment and ultimately the health of all living things. Think of this task as a natural cure to cleaning the environment.
9) If you suffer from an ailment, always research and select a natural cure. There’s a remedy for almost every ailment. Research the many great resources available today offering great natural remedies that are effective and safe.
The wonderful thing about natural cures is that you reduce huge amounts of harmful chemicals which are found in most prescriptions and over-the-counter drugs. Your body will definitely know the difference.
10) Take it slowly. The most important task of all. If you are going to succeed in living a healthier life, you must apply the steps outlined in this guide to healthy living slowly, one at a time. It can be very overwhelming to incorporate many changes all at once.
