Do you promise yourself change,
change that never happens?
Having healthy daily/weekly rituals is the best way to keep on top of your game.
I appreciate that life isn’t always manageable, the unexpected does happen and flexibility is needed.
However if you let life dictate everything you will have low energy, bad health and illness in no time.
Implement a few small changes now to start the habits that will make drastic improvements in the quality of your life.
Here are some of my healthy rituals.
Try implementing one at a time each week, in no time you will be amazed at the accumulative effects they all have on your health, wellness and waistline.
Lemon Water – Have this first thing upon waking up.
Warm lemon water will get you cleansing and hydrated straight away. Good hydration is key to so many functions especially cleansing and even energy levels and mood.
Try to increase the amount to around one liter before your first meal.
Oil Pulling – Pull out toxins from the gums line, help eliminate abscess and bad breath.
I use a heaped teaspoon of coconut oil 2-3 times per week after brushing.
Swill and gargle the oil vigorously for 10-20 mins for it to be effective.
Meal Preparation – Be prepared or hand the responsibility of your health to someone else.
Preparing your own meals or snacks is the best way to control your health, after all if you’re eating out you have no idea what goes in to it, nor any any idea of the quality of the ingredients.
Evening Snack – Sleep better.
I personally can’t sleep if I’m hungry. If your blood sugar drops to low it will disturb your sleep pattern and can wake you up.
Stop screen glow
The glow from any device will disturb your circadian rhythms, stopping your body from going through its sleep preparation cycle.
Take note or you will be staring at the ceiling for hours wondering why you’re not sleepy.
Teas containing Valerian Root, Chamomile and Fennel are fantastic for calming you ready for bed.
Flossing – Eliminate bad breath.
Think about the impact of swallowing bad bacteria that multiplies between the teeth all day long, that’s alone is enough to change your habits.
I’ve been flossing for a long as I can remember and consider flossing more important than brushing, not just for oral hygiene but also for your overall health.
It takes two minutes before you brush and with regularity it will substantially reduce the buildup of plaque, most importantly between the teeth.
I’ve helped people totally eliminate bad breath by just adding flossing to their daily routine, who knows it may even stop you getting any abscess in the first place.
