Tips for Healthy Living

3 Essential Tips for Staying Healthy

Just like a New Year’s resolution, we often start an exercise plan or healthy diet on a high note. Feeling excited to finally lose some weight, get toned, or cut out the junk food once and for all, we set lofty goals for ourselves.

Maybe we download a new online fitness program or splurge and get that gym membership that will inspire us to work out. We finish off that ice cream that’s beckoning from the freezer, promising not to buy more. Then we get to work.

Make Time For Fun

Responsibility—whether it’s school, family, work, or relationships—can sometimes feel like a heavy weight on our shoulders, especially when we’re tired or working very hard. During these intense times, it’s easy to become overwhelmed.

While bigger or ongoing problems like anxiety or depression may require special attention, sometimes adding a little healthy fun and playfulness or humor to our day can help neutralize some of life’s unavoidable stresses.

Having some fun may even help:

Eating Healthy On the Go

An extra busy schedule and time spent travelling can take a heavy toll on how you feel—physically and emotionally. So it’s especially wise to take good care of yourself during those times.

A big part of that care is diet. Making healthy homemade meals may not always be an option when you’re on the go, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make good choices.

With a little creativity, though, you can cruise through without getting stressed out.

In Praise of Trees

Have you ever sought relief from a sudden rainstorm under a big leafy tree? Or taken a walk in the forest and noticed how exhilarated you felt? Have you ever lain down in the grass under a green canopy of trees and felt soothed?

If you have, then you know the magic of trees.

Trees are a living gift from Mother Nature serving us from childhood through old age.

In every culture and every part of the world, children climb, swing, and play on trees.

Green Veggies for Health

Mother Nature provides us with everything we need for a healthy diet. And of all the plant foods she provides—fruits, vegetables, grains, legumes, nuts, and seeds—vegetables top the list.

Vegetables are a cornerstone of good health. They reduce our risk of heart disease, stroke, cancer, and many other ailments. When we replace meat and refined, processed foods with vegetables, we’re giving our body a boost of nutrition, helping us stay healthier overall and maintain a healthy weight too.

Support for Joints

We move a hundred different ways each day. We bend, stretch, reach, squat, duck, and twist. While we drive, walk, talk, and even while we sleep, we shift positions to make ourselves more comfortable. We move constantly, mostly without thinking.

For fluid movement to occur, our joints need to be healthy. For many of us, however, pain, stiffness, and inflammation get in the way. That’s why it’s so important to take care of our joints and protect them. Here are some helpful tips.

How to Pamper Your Tired Feet

If you think about it, your feet put up with a lot. They help you walk, run, skip, and dance your way through the day. When you get home, they help you stand and cook dinner—even when you don’t feel like it. When the day is done, they even haul you upstairs to bed.

Show your feet some well-earned TLC, in the form of a foot soak and rub. Not only your feet—but your entire body will benefit.

The Secret To Aging Gracefully

When the topic of old age arises, people often imagine someone using a walker, being in a wheelchair, or having to take a lot of pills. While in some cases that may be true, does old age really equate to ill health? For a yogi, the secret to aging gracefully is not a mystery. It is a by-product of living healthfully.

A yoga lifestyle encourages vitality and a positive youthful glow. With the understanding that the body is like a temple, we naturally treat our bodies with more respect and care.

Is Your Cell Phone Hurting You?

Our bodies thrive when they are well-nourished, when we feel rested, and when we are living in harmony with nature.  When those natural rhythms are disrupted over the long-term, our bodies natural immunity suffers and we are more susceptible to sickness and disease.

One kind of stress that threatens us more and more comes from the electronic devices we use regularly, such as cell phones, smart phones, cordless phones, laptop and desktop computers, tablets, and similar devices.
