Reflexology For The Spirit

Healthy Results

In this  blog post,  I deliberately chose  lifestyle changes which will offer you multiple health benefits.   This is part of a series of  healthy lifestyle tips  to improve your life.    Here are some new ones for you to choose from.  Try them out.  Some will work for you for a while.  Others will be habits you’ll adopt and live with.  These are all positive changes to improve your life.

GROCERY SHOPPING? – Choose whole, natural foods rather packaged or processed foods.

TAKE YOUR VITAMINS AND MINERALS daily.  Choose ones that you need to supplement your diet.  A nutritionist helps me choose the best supplements for my lifestyle situation, body type, age, and health.  Think of your daily vitamins as a sort of wellness insurance policy.  It’s hard to get all the nutrients we need each day.  Vitamins make the job a bit easier.

SET YOUR ALARM to go off 15 minutes earlier each day.  That way, you can slowly wake up .  You’ll have a few minutes to  stretch your arms, legs, hands, toes, feet, ankles, legs, neck and back.  This will bring extra oxygen to your entire body and get your day off to a good start.

MAKE YOUR MORNING DECISIONS THE NIGHT BEFORE.  That means you choose what clothes you’re going to wear the night before.  Choose what you’re going to eat for breakfast.  The more decisions you make the night before, the easier your morning will be.

KEEP  A TO-GO CORNER where you put all the things everyone is going to need as they run out the door.  This will include keys, wallet, book bags, gloves, hats, and whatever else will be needed.

CHOOSE A SHOWER.  It’s healthier than a bath.

DRINK A LARGE GLASS OF WATER.  You wake up each day dehydrated and you’ve been fasting all night so the water is good for you.

LISTEN TO FIVE OR TEN MINUTES OF QUIET MUSIC EACH MORNING.  You’re probably going to hear people talking all day long.  A few minutes of quiet music is helpful preparation.

KEEP YOUR BREAKFAST ROUTINE EASY.  Healthy breakfasts can include  granola,  whole grain cereals, cottage cheese, yogurt, hard boiled eggs.  Try spreading apple slices with peanut butter.  Don’t forget the blueberries! Substitute peanut butter for butter.

TREAT YOURSELF TO DARK CHOCOLATE AS A TOPPING FOR YOUR CEREAL.

Dark chocolate has lots of antioxidants to keep your arteries healthy.

Healthy Small Steps

There are, literally, thousands of things all of us can do.  It’s the small changes which add up to meaningful  health improvement.  I’m  offering  a group of changes in each blog post which you can choose from.  Choose one new thing each day if you can.

My grandmother used to say to me:  “You take care of the nickels and the dollars will take care of themselves.”  Healthy Small Steps are the same thing.  Add healthy habits or lose unhealthy habits a day at a time to change your life for the better.

Substitute A BOTTLE OF WATER for that daily soda.  Water is cheaper and wonderful for your urinary health.  Don’t like water? Choose tea.  There are many flavors out there without sugar, artificial colors, artificial flavors, in the lineup of ingredients.

Spend five minutes every day STRETCHING.  You can do this while you’re watching TV.   Your joints and muscles will thank you.

Put OLIVE OIL in your salad dressings.  Your food will taste better and your body will be appreciative.  My olive oil is organic and comes from California.  It tastes delicious.  It’s nutritious.  Organic olive oil is a clean food.  My salads are yummy.

Do you eat  cereal?  Sweeten it with CINNAMON instead of sugar.  Your blood sugar levels will improve a bit.

Give yourself a TREAT!  Call a friend to chat.  Buy yourself a flower.  Have a luxurious bath with  scented soap.  These are all simple, inexpensive ways to reduce stress in your life.

Add a POWER NAP to your day.  Spend just a few minutes each day with your feet up, your eyes closed, breathing deeply, relaxing.  The remainder of your day will go easier for you!

Switch to WHOLE GRAINS.  Whole grain breads and cereals taste better and offer better nutrition.  What’s not to love about them?

Sniff a sprig of ROSEMARY.  This will give your brain a treat.  You’ll be more alert and you’ll enjoy the scent.  If you can’t get a sprig of rosemary, try putting a drop of rosemary essential oil on a tissue as a substitute.

QUIT SMOKING.  Okay.  This one may not be so easy, but the benefits are HUGE.  Go for it!

Get a good night’s SLEEP.  Okay, this one may not be so easy, either.  But the benefits are also HUGE.  For starters, schedule enough sleep time in every daily schedule.

Try some of these tips.  Lifestyle changes have multiple health benefits.  I’ll be sending more along in the next blog.

And, thanks for reading this blog post.

BOOK UPDATE:  The second edition of “A Healer’s Handbook” should be out this week!  And, I’ve begun volume 2!

I thank all of you for this.  If no one were reading this book, this blog, there would be no need for a Volume 2.
