Top 10 Ways to be Happier and Healthier in 2014

Happy Healthy New YearSeems like January came and went in the blink of an eye. Now that we’re past all the vacation feasting, you’re likely contemplating a diet to ditch those extra holiday pounds together with other approaches to turn into a brand new you in the brand new year.

Here are 10 things to make it even more possible for you to energize yourself, slim down, enhance your wellbeing, and feel absolutely wonderful and youthful. Not to mention that you’ll be looking amazing!

One) Lose unwanted pounds forever. By changing your diet and eating healthy you’ll be amazed at how fast you shed those pounds. By making a commitment to eating more vegetables and fruits, you’ll also vastly increase your overall health and feelings of wellness. Keep it up and keep the pounds off!

Two) Give your lymphatic system a boost! With all the toxins out there today sometimes the lymph nodes get bogged down and seriously fall behind in their detoxing duties. Switch out that soda for all natural, raw cranberry juice and add the juice from a squeezed lemon into all of your drinking water to help get your lymphatic system working properly.

Three) Eat the correct fats to decrease fatty tissue. To burn off body fat you require omega 3 oils (in chia, linseed oil, and fish oil) or omega6 fats like GLA and CLA (not safflower oil) to marshal the body’s metabolically active brown fat, help with inflammation, and stabilize blood sugar levels to put an end to cravings.

Four) Ditch the sugary, salty junk foods. Salty processed food items create water-weight while yeasty and sugary meals cause bloating. Start drinking and snacking on more natural, less processed foods like fresh fruits and juices, for example. Ever hear of Pinterest (who hasn’t)? There is a TON of healthy and satisfying recipes on there. You just have to do a quick search to find them.

Five) Worry less and rest more. The stress hormone known as Cortisol can promote fat in our bodies. It also makes it hard to get to sleep at night. So try some yoga, meditation, or get yourself a massage. Relax and see how healthy you feel and how great you’ll look.

Six) Get Moving! Folks who are overweight spend a lot of time sitting. Lymph blood circulation is dependent on our body’s actually moving around often through the day. Take walks, play sports, start running or get any preferred version of the exercise. Anything that gets you up and moving for more of the day.

Seven) Green up your act. Whenever you can, consume organic foods. Go organic in all products that you buy (soaps, shampoos, cleaning agents, everything!)  to reduce your body’s burden of unnecessary toxins. Drink filtered tap water, and in case you should need to take water along with you, use BPA-Free water bottles to avoid plastic leeching.

Eight) Avoid those parasites. Over half of all Americans tote around uninvited visitors, including giardia in drinking-water to worms transmitted by animals. Clean your hands attentively for 20 seconds after playing with pets, changing nappies, doing food prep, and ingesting that food. If you’re exhausted with no cause to be, starving even after you’ve eaten, or have a few other grounds to suppose parasites, then you should do a parasite cleanse – one that’s mild and secure – to ditch those uninvited visitors.

Nine) Reflection. I strongly recommend maintaining a diary, writing down your inner-most ideas and feelings, particularly during a detox and cleanse. Be fair and not too critical. Understand that it requires time to shift those ingrained routines you’ve had for years if you end up indulging or cheating on a diet.

Ten) Live in the now. I steadfastly think that you and your energy go where your mind goes. Take several minutes every day to meditate and refocus yourself. Every year goes by just one day at a time. Have an enjoyable 2014!
