Thursday, May 4, 2017
Being healthy can sometimes feel like you're missing out on all the good things in life. But choosing a healthy lifestyle doesn't have to be a chore or mean deprivation. By adding a few good habits that healthy people do daily, you too can easily live a healthy and vibrant life. The bonus being that you will look and feel more youthful, have greater energy, keep illness at bay and lead a healthier balanced life.
Add these health enhancing habits to your daily lifestyle and you'll be envied for your abundant va-va-voom, youthful radiant skin and your ability to achieve more.
Exercise is the fountain of youth so make it a priority
Get moving for at least 30 minutes every day. One study in the American Journal of Physiology established that 30 minutes of moderate exercise to be just as effective as 60 when it came to weight loss. So there's no excuse! Add body weight (resistance) exercises, and you'll not only improve your metabolism but boost the youthfulness of your cells too. Find exercise that you love—that way fitness will never feel like a chore.
Daily exercise also applies to your facial muscles too. Regularly strengthening your facial muscles will prevent your face from heading south, decrease those lines and wrinkles that can creep up on us and improve the overall beauty of your skin. Manual facial exercise can help, but even better, use a non-surgical facelift device such as Tua Tre'nd to lift and tone your face and neck in just 15 minutes a day.
See Food As A Nourishing Source - you really are what you eat!
Think of the food you eat as your life-enhancing fuel. Feeding your cells nutrient empty fuel will leave you feeling sluggish and your cells will age at a much faster rate. So ensure you have three nutritious meals a day and some healthy snacks in between and you'll stabilise your blood sugar levels and reduce junk food cravings. Prepare meals that are nutrient dense. Think lots of leafy greens, colourful fruit and vegetables, good fats like avocados and unsalted raw nuts, and high quality protein to feed your muscles.

Value Your Sleep
Sleep is when most of your growth hormones (which are anti-ageing) are produced and regeneration occurs; regular sleep can really make you look healthier, more youthful and more attractive.
This is confirmed by a 2010 study published in the British Medical Journal. Researchers photographed 23 people after a period of sleep deprivation and after a normal night's sleep of eight hours. The photos were shown to 65 people who rated each photo based on health attractiveness and tiredness. The sleep deprived group scored lower in all three categories.
So sleep is imperative to vital daily function and looking good. Aim for 7-8 hours of quality sleep a night.
Be Grateful & Go Outdoors
Even if meditation is not your thing, simply taking a moment to reflect on what you're thankful for will help you feel more grounded and happier. Taking a daily gratitude walk outdoors in nature will boost positive feelings, reduce stress and provide exercise at the same time.
Learn Something New
People who focus on continual learning and improvement have fewer markers of inflammation, which is linked to ageing and cancer. These people experience moments of wonder and create new neural pathways, important to keeping brain cells young. Remember the brain is a muscle that needs to be exercised regularly too.
Drink Filtered or Spring Water
Drink a glass of water first thing in the morning before eating. This helps to rid the body of toxins, hydrates you and gets your digestive system started.
Hydrated skin looks more youthful and dewy too, a great reason to drink more water.
Aim for 8 glasses of filtered or spring water a day.
Did you know that the average person checks their mobile phone 200 times a day. A recent study published by the Public Library of Science found the more time a person spent on Facebook, the more dissatisfied they ultimately felt with their own life.
That's why going offline regularly, helps you reconnect with what's important in your own life. You'll have more 'me' time, nurture stronger relationships and accomplish more. Plus you'll be healthier, more youthful and live longer.
Researchers have found that individuals who experience a high degree of social interaction, meaning interaction with other people (rather than online), had a dramatically lower risk for inflammation, being overweight, and even developing high blood pressure.
Go on... unplug and have a digital detox and reap the benefits of a clearer mind and a happier healthier you.
To a more youthful you.
