Healthy body & mind

In our world of fast lives and fast food, we sometimes catch ourselves wishing we had more time to relax enjoy everyday things. Sometimes we get sick and cannot get better for a really long time. Medicines don’t help much and no matter how early we go to bed, we cannot get enough sleep. All this indicates that you might be too exhausted and that you need some time off to get better. If your life seems to go too fast for your own liking, you might try making some changes in order to feel better, both physically and spiritually.

Balance your meals

You wouldn’t believe how much healthier you will feel if you add some more fresh fruit and vegetables to your diet. You don’t have to go vegan, but reducing the amount of meat you eat every day will help your body digest food and make you feel lighter as well. Start at least one of your meals with a bowl of fresh soup (you can make a lot of it and keep it in the fridge for a few days) which will make you feel fuller, while consuming fewer calories.

Be more active

Physical activity is beneficial for your body and your mind as well. You don’t have to join the gym and start lifting weights and doing push-ups to make a difference. Simply make some small changes in your everyday routine: park a bit further when you go to work and walk a few blocks, start jogging in the morning or in the evening (whatever suits you better) or take up yoga lessons.

Hydrate your organism

Drink at least eight glasses of water a day. Forget about sodas and reduce the amount of alcohol you drink and turn to fresh juices. You can prepare on your own and drink a detoxing tea before you go to work. This will boost up your metabolism and you will notice how much better you skin looks. In addition, this will help you lose some weight as well.

Focus on good things in life

You might have trouble sleeping and feel agitated all day long without any particular reason. This could be happening because your mind is preoccupied with too many things. Try to help your mind relax along with your body. You might feel better if you write things down. Putting your worries and fears on paper might help you face them and notice that they aren’t as bad as they might have seemed in your head. Take 10 minutes of your morning to think about all those things that make you happy and bring joy to your life, this will make your whole day better.

It is not difficult to make life changing decisions and stick to them, if you feel motivated enough. However, finding motivation is one thing and creating a habit is a whole new area. Always think of the future and it will be easier to stick to your decisions.
