A great theme for 2022 after a couple of years of limited travel and being home based for so many workwise. This idea centers around having good, solid health and creating backup to recover quickly and completely if you become sick or injured.
Like so many things worth having, good health involves daily steps and choices. Similar to sound financial planning, you’ll earn aggregated rewards – reducing pain, digestive disorders, and many of the degenerative diseases that come from being overweight or obese, and sleeping better.
How do we do this?
Home Based Ideas:
- Filtered water – drink half your body weight in oz’s daily
- Use a pinch of grey Sea Salt – mineral enhancement
- Reduce starchy foods & eat more veggies
- Avoid allergens from: dairy, sugar, wheat, corn & soy
- Dark, quiet sleeping environment
- Protein snack before bed or if awakened
- Daily exercise/movement/stretching
- Find activity you enjoy and do it!
- Same as “Home Based” – quality refillable water bottle
- Sea Salt in H2O, hot lemon H2o at meals for digestion
- Omit bread, white potatoes, rice & pasta. Veggies!
- Veggies + animal protein, dark chocolate (85%) & fruit
- Same + consistent lights out time
- Raw nuts or almond/nut butter pre-sleep
- 15-20 minutes: bands/stretching/video/hotel gym
- Modify that activity, i.e.: livestream/video in room/gym
You’ll be reducing inflammation with these healthy choices – inflammation undergirds ALL disease!
People often ask me about eating organic foods and free-range chicken, beef, and wild fish. Reducing all toxins (pesticides, insecticides, herbicides, BGH, high fructose corn syrup, etc.) is ideal and by keeping your dietary choices clean and simple, you will look, feel and age better while living longer. Sounds good, doesn’t it?!
Start or continue building your health reserves with great choices and daily commitment. Let the momentum build upon itself and get back on track if you get off for a meal or a day. It takes time and no one’s perfect. Be patient with yourself if you’re starting new, healthier habits and getting rid of bad habits that could instead be an occasional indulgence.
