A healthy lifestyle comes easy to some people but is a lifetime struggle for others. Some people say it is all about creating those healthy habits, but that is the hardest part for the bulk of society.
So, what does being “healthy” really consist of? Well, one thing that I have learned is that health should really come from within which brings me to the option of supplements. With 7 different high-quality CBD gummies, CBDfx has so many options to kick start a healthy lifestyle. I really love the CBD gummies with turmeric and spirulina.
Turmeric has a laundry list of benefits such as anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, improves digestion, and so much more! Not to mention, the spirulina is loaded with antioxidants, nutrients, and also has anti-inflammatory properties. Incorporating this into my daily regimen has been a lifesaver for me because it’s so easy to do and my body heavily reaps the benefits.
Be Mindful When Eating
The next order of business is in the kitchen. Yes, you already know, the kitchen. I am not one of those people who believes in strict diets. I think we should all aim to fill our plates with fruits and veggies, but also not deprive ourselves of a good philly cheesesteak every once in a while. Balance is the key.
A trick I have also learned is to use a smaller plate. I guess the psychology in this is that we can subconsciously “trick” our brains. You should also have your health goals in mind. If you want to slim down, you might want to cut back on the carbs, but if you’re looking to bulk up, carbs are your friend.
Relaxing On The Meat
While we’re in the kitchen, let’s talk about meatless Mondays. This has been a staple in my household for quite some time, and has even morphed into a meatless week every once in a while. Going meatless gives your digestion system a break and might even force your system to cleanse itself.
Fresh fruits, green leafy veggies, and beans are great to substitute. There are some decent meat substitutes if you’re into that, but some people say that it’s really not that great for your body, and call it vegan/vegetarian junk food. Like I said, it’s all about your goals, so just keep that in mind.
Keep A Sleep Routine
Have you ever noticed that when you mess up your sleep schedule you feel thrown off? Sleep is sooo important, and I think a lot of us simply overlook some of the most vital elements to our health. Catching up on sleep, or just having a good sleep routine with 8 hours of sleep can boost your immune system, help you manage your weight, and even increase your memory capacity.
Cleanse Your System
So, now that you’re eating good (most of the time) and sleeping good you need to go back to focusing on the internal aspects of your health. This is where a good detox comes into play. There are so many ways you can do this, and there are some good teas and capsules out there geared towards activating a good cleanse. You can find them almost anywhere, but I would opt for my local health food store and also do some research.
All cleanses are NOT created equally. You don’t want this to be a traumatic experience. You just want to feel lighter (if you know what I mean). If you don’t trust this route you can seek a professional colonoscopy, but you still need to do some good research and make sure the place is clean and reviewed well.
Reset With Water
One last question: Are you drinking enough water? Sounds redundant I’m sure, but if you’re not drinking enough water you could feel disoriented, have low energy levels, have headaches, always feel hungry. These are just some of the things that could indicate that you are not drinking enough water. The suggested amount of daily water intake is 8 glasses (of 8 oz) a day and some even drink more.
I always see people on the “health kick” showcasing their gallon jug, so I looked to see what all the hype was about. Supposedly, your metabolism raises so it helps you lose weight, combats belly bloat and water retention among other claims. I have never been able to drink that much water, so I can’t verify that information, but as an avid 8 oz a day water drinker; I can attest to great skin and weight maintenance.
I have never been that hardcore workout person, or even the girl who eats quinoa and beets, but try my best to incorporate healthier habits when I see an avenue to fit it into my lifestyle. We all just have to start with minor tweaks to our lifestyles and hold them for 21 days to create a new habit…a new healthy habit.
