Healthy Living isn’t just about diet and nutrition, although that is where we should start. Lifestyle factors are just as crucial as nutrition when it comes to healing the body. Most people realize that sleep, movement and reducing stress are all important – but doing them is another story. Lifestyle is part of a whole system of health, so if your lifestyle is not healthful, the body will break down no matter how good the remedies, therapies, or other healing methods. You can eat a healthy diet, but a healthy lifestyle is truly a key component in your overall health.
A balanced, healthy lifestyle is crucial. It is one of the most basic healing modalities but is often neglected due to our daily hectic schedules. In order to understand my client’s lifestyle and make necessary corrections, I review with them their daily habits like how they are sleeping, type of drinking water, EMF exposure, etc. Lifestyle changes can sometimes be more challenging than nutritional changes.
Living a healthy lifestyle encompasses:
- Sleep & Rest
- Movement & Exercise
- Reducing stress
- Mindset & Meditation
- Fun & Connection
- Getting outside and being in nature (sun exposure)
- Non-toxic living (reducing our toxic burden)
All of these aspects of a healthy lifestyle must be addressed to live a long healthy life.
Many people’s lifestyle habits go against how their bodies were designed and, therefore, contribute to stress and a decline in health. We are not designed to live on five hours of sleep a night for months on end or to stare at bright computer and smartphone screens until we go to sleep. Neither are we designed to do intense exercise every single day nor never to feel sunshine on our skin. How we manage our stress, play, sleep and exercise have a profound impact on our health. You must get in sync with your body’s natural rhythms and start living a healthy lifestyle.
Let’s begin a journey together to A Healthier You!
