What? Did you think it was going to be something you have never heard before? It is soooo simple I am constantly in awe of why folks do not just do it.
- Drink water - ditch almost every other drink out there and most certainly doth the high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) which is linked to heart disease and is a genetically modified (GMO) food. See more about GMO's HERE!
- Work Out - Those of you that work out or have worked out in the past must know the benefits you feel and it is my number one way to relax, rejuvenate and take charge of my life. You not only control your weight, you fight disease, increase endorphins which increases energy and gives you a natural high making each day awesome. It can even benefit your sex life, help you sleep better and it's just fun. Think of these benefits the next time you need to get a workout in. I would literally go insane if I did not workout 5-7 times a week. Seriously.
- Eat Healthy Foods, Not Diet Foods - living a healthy life is about fueling up on high octane and not on worthless carbs, fast food, and soda. Of course nobody eats perfectly all of the time, but you will find the more you make healthy food choices, the more your body craves those foods and the junk tastes nasty. Check out the Green PolkaDot Box (GPDB) for an easy way to shop for healthy, organic, nonGMO foods at up to 60% off what you would pay at Whole Foods. You just cannot make a mistake on your food choices when you shop at GPDB.
- Sleep!!! - Sophia Loren was once asked how she stayed so beautiful and her answer was...sleep. Our bodies need the restorative magic of sleep. Studies show you will not only live longer with more sleep, you will also improve memory and creativity, curb inflammation (which is linked to heart disease, stroke, diabetes, arthritis and premature aging), improve performance and grades, sharpen attention span, control weight, lower stress , avoid car accidents, and fight off depression.
Number four for me is the toughest to stay on track with. What do you find most challenging?
