Tips for Leading a Healthy 2019

You don’t have to go on a crazy juice cleanse to be healthy or give up eating dairy or gluten. Here are some top tips from the experts and myself!

  • The number one thing you can do? Sleep, sleep, sleep. Get into a healthy sleeping pattern and stick to it.  You want to aim for at least 8 hours of sleep at night.

  • Hydrate, hydrate hydrate - Drink lots of water.  Water is the key to everything. If you get dehydrated, then you are going to be sluggish, have no energy and be grumpy.  (This is hard one for me, especially in the winter).

  • Incorporate more fruit and vegetables into your day. In Great Britain they recommend 5 servings a day of fruit and vegetables. Are you getting this?

  • Vary your diet – eat 30 different types of fruits, vegetables and pulses a week!

  • Consider having one vegetarian meal a week – meatless Monday?

  • Cook 1 new recipe a week..how hard can it be right?

  • Exercise for at least 150 minutes per a week.

  • Get outside and see the sun so you can get your Vitamin D.

  • Consider writing a gratitude journal – every morning write down 3 to 5 things you are grateful. Commit to writing this journal for the next month or year.  Start you day with positivity and gratitude. You will be amazed by the shift in mindset.

  • Surround yourself with inspiring literature andmusic – be it books or podcasts.  (I have recently stopped listening to the radio and only listen to podcasts and it has totally changed my day!)

  • Saturday switch off – switch off all electrical devices for the day.

  • Incorporate essential oils into your life – diffuser, spray, bath salts, sugar scrubs…I personally love Serenity by Doterra (this was in the diffuser at the retreat…and thank you Selina for the diffuser!)

  • Incorporate yoga, meditation and breathing into your life.  Set realistic goals. My goal right now is to go to yoga once a week (I love Sarah’s class at Out Here on Tuesday lunch times!)
