Weeding out what’s not working in our lives, both internally and externally, can improve our mental outlook and our physical well-being. There are healthy rituals that can empower, energize and renew your life:
Live with intention: Decide what you want to achieve and write down your goals. Every book about achievement (of any kind) stresses the importance of setting personal goals.
De-clutter: Whether it’s your home or office or even your purse, clear the clutter. When you clear the clutter, you’ll create a space. This will bring calm and serenity to your environment. You’ll get more organized. More important, you’ll be inspired to do the same in other parts of your life. Please see also my blog post: Declutter your life
Chill out: Allow yourself some time to relax and replenish your reserves. Life is your personal journey. Keep looking for the answers that are right for you. Whether you try yoga, meditation or other forms of relaxing, find a way to recharge.
No sugar diet: I can’t emphasize enough how bad the refined sugar and corn syrup is for you. Consider minimizing your sugar intake, if you haven’t done it already. Artificial sweeteners are just as bad. Eating excess sugar can increase your risk for cardiovascular disease, diabetes, depression, hypertension and osteoporosis.
Detox your body: Please read my blog post: Are you planning a detox this spring ?
Engage in a variety of physical activities: Whether you work out at a gym, swim, do yoga or pilates, dance with your favorite music or walk daily in nature, do something everyday. This is good for your mental as well as physical health.
Enjoy the sun: Please read my blog post: Are you getting enough “Vitamin D”?
Drink a smoothie: If you don’t eat fruits and vegetables daily, this is a great way to get it all in one. Try one of my favorite recipes: 12 oz strawberries, 1 cup blueberries , 1 ripe banana, 1 cup plain lowfat yoghurt, 1 cup almond milk.
Substitute quinoa for rice: Quinoa has all of the essential amino acids your body needs. Please read my blog post: Eat more quinoa
Volunteer: Find a cause you’re passionate about and spend some time every week to give back. This will make you happy and fulfilled.
