10 Best Ideas for Living Healthy

  1. 1. BEING HEALTHY
  2. 2. 1. NOTICE WHERE YOUR ENERGY DRAINS Sometimes we do things out of habit without noticing how we feel. What we feed our mind is a form of nutrition. Too much TV can be depressing. A steady diet of other people’s opinions is rarely uplifting. Spending hours looking at other people’s lives on Facebook may be fun for a while. Notice how you feel. Energized? Inspired? Jealous? Frustrated? We have hundreds of emotions. Taking a moment to be aware of the specific emotions being generated by what we are observing or doing is instructive. This awareness and honesty makes eliminating negative habits easier.
  3. 3. 2. NOTICE HOW MUCH TIME YOU SPEND DOING THINGS YOU ENJOY. The average woman spends 81 minutes a day on FB and 3 hours watching TV. Even though you are not “average”, list the activities that you would love to have more time for and make these your priority on a regular basis. Notice how you feel when you make the things you love to do a priority.
  4. 4. 3. WHEN FACED WITH SOMETHING YOU DO NOT ENJOY DOING… FIND A WAY TO ENJOY THE WAY YOU DO IT. Select an activity that you don’t enjoy. Fill in the blanks in this statement: Although I don’t enjoy doing ________________________ I have found a way to enjoy how I do it by __________. This simple process opens the door to our creativity and shifts negative energy to feelings of empowerment.  
  5. 5. 4. STAY CREATIVE. Creative endeavors outside of competitive pressures are therapeutic and generate feelings of accomplishment and wellbeing. Make it your priority to plan, start and finish a creative project that you truly enjoy. Experience joy and inspiration through the creativity of others.
  6. 6. 5. KEEP A JOURNAL. The act of writing about lessons learned, questions, ideas, successes and concerns accesses your analytical left-brain and frees your creative right-brain to intuit and feel. Studies show that writing helps free us from the past and embody a renewed sense of purpose and confidence. Set aside time everyday to journal. Food journals, success journals, daily diaries are simple therapeutic tools for reducing stress and making better choices for health and well being.  
  7. 7. 6. CONNECT WITH THE NATURAL WORLD. Access to nature’s natural negative ions—particles that are plentiful near waterfalls, breaking waves, forests, lakes and river rapids—can act as natural anti-depressants and immune boosters. When you ground to the electron-enriched earth, an improved balance of the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system. Set aside time everyday to connect with the gifts of the natural world.
  8. 8. 7. FOOD HEALS OR NOT… Our bodies and minds respond best to regular meals of nutritious whole foods. It is that simple. When we eat randomly or on the run, and ingest non-foods we enter the realm of chronic stress and inflammation. Consider eliminating acid forming foods like wheat and meat. Check your blood levels of Vitamin D3, a preventative of most forms of cancer.  
  9. 9. 8. MOVE. Studies show that C-reactive protein, the marker for inflammation and heart disease increases the longer we sit in front of a computer or TV. We feel better, think better, improve our metabolism, reduce inflammation, and enjoy a better self-image by adding daily physical activities that we enjoy. Mix it up. Yoga, walking, weights, dance, run, skip, and add play to every day.  
  10. 10. 9. CREATE A HEALTHY ENVIRONMENT. DE-CLUTTER. What we surround ourselves with matters. In fact, your environment is an affirmation of what you value. De-cluttering, recycling, donating, discarding and rearranging are therapeutic. If some of your things are not affirming who are becoming let them go and your energy and sense of well-being will increase! This includes what is in your pantry and fridge!  
  11. 11. 10. CONTINUE LEARNING. What is on your wish list to learn and do or teach? Begin with the end in mind and then focus on the process. Fill in the blanks in this sentence: By December 2014 I will be an expert in ………, aspiring to be the best in my world by ……………….(Be specific about what actions you will take and how often; track your progress.) www.QSELFCARE.com is a great place to begin and continue your personal change.
