Healthy Crumbs Week: Mindful Monday: Natural Health Tips

Healthy Crumb: Mindful Monday

Most of us know and have heard of all the general healthy living tips, but how many of us actually follow them daily?  Here is a list to use as a quick reminder of the natural health recommendations we should all be following daily. 

Natural Heath Tips to Follow Daily
  • Eat 5-8 cups of vegetables daily
  • Eat 1-3 card-deck sized lean protein servings daily
  • Chew your food to a liquid state and do not drink anything while eating. If you need to drink while you are eating, you are already dehydrated!
  • Drink half your body weight in ounces of water daily. (So if you weigh 150 pounds you should be drinking 75 ounces of water daily!) Drink throughout the day and stop drinking by 7pm.
  • Dry skin brushing: Stimulate circulation by a thorough gentle brushing of all your skin. Use short, very light, frequent strokes from fingertips & toes towards the heart for 2-4 minutes. Best done on dry skin before a morning shower. Use a vegetable fiber brush, natural brush or loofah sponge. 
  • Hydrotherapy: End your warm shower with a cool to cold spray, starting with the extremities and finishing with the lower back, for 15-20 seconds to return blood flow to your internal organs.
  • Deep Breathing: For your lungs, do a minimum of 10 deep belly breaths daily! 
  • Exercise: Move your muscles daily. Walk a minimum of 30 minutes daily, 5 days a week. 
  • Sleep: Go to bed at the same time every night and awaken at the same time every morning. Avoid TV before bed. Good sleep improves memory, helps balance hormones, and aids weight loss. 
  • Laugh: Take time in your day to laugh with family, friends, coworkers and at yourself!
  • Clutter: Get rid of extra clutter in your life, identify it, address it, get rid of it!
Follow these daily healthy recommendations and I promise you, you will feel better, have more energy and improve your overall health!
