Sustain A Healthy Weight
Excess fat, especially in the stomach area, can increase your risk of overall illness. Sustaining a healthy weight will make you feel better, and it can give you more energy!
Healthy oils like olive oil, coconut, walnut, and flaxseed have lots of heart-healthy fats and antioxidants. Raw nuts, avocados, olives, and organic butter are also healthy oils you can use in your diet.
Water, Water, And More Water
Drinking enough water is at the heart of good health. Almost all of your body’s functions rely on water, so staying hydrated is crucial to maintaining good health.
Get Up And Move
Many of your body’s natural functions like circulation, digestion, heart function, and immune system are impacted by movement, so get up and move!
Include More Leafy Greens
Most people’s diets are missing the correct amount of leafy greens! They are a rich source of fiber and vitamins, and are overall very nutrient-dense.
Lower Your Stress
Having high stress levels can impact your health in a variety of ways, including weakening your immune system. Finding a way to lower your stress will help your mind, and your body.
Eat More QUALITY Protein
Protein plays an important role in the body, it can help promote cell growth and repair, and assist with cell metabolism, fluid balance, immune system maintenance, and blood sugar stabilization.
Substitute Whole Grains For Processed Foods
Whole grains are absorbed by the body slowly, which can give your body long-lasting energy. Instead of reaching for processed foods and snacks, go for grains like oats, quinoa, brown rice, and buckwheat.
Practice Mindfulness With Your Diet
Mindfulness, or being aware of your body and mind in the present can be practiced with your diet too! Instead of snacking because you are bored, or need something to do with your hands, be aware of when you are truly hungry. When eating, be mindful or when you have eaten enough, instead of stopping when you are stuffed.
Attitude is Everything
Your thoughts have power. Feed your body with positive thoughts, and you can see changes in your emotional AND physical health!
