It's that time of year when we look back, embracing the joys, reliving the sorrows and giving gratitude for another year to get it right! Looking back at the many books I have read, podcasts I have consumed and my personal experiences with health and wellness; I have decided the following list works! This statement has not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration!
Top10 list for 2018!
#10 Intermittent Fasting- it's pretty simple; try to fast for at least 12 hours a day. If your last meal was at 8 p.m., your next calories consumed should not be before 8 a.m. This gives the digestive system a much-needed break.
#9 Eliminate Sugar-this is simple, but difficult. Sugar causes inflammation and has no nutrient value, it is addictive and causes cravings. (tough love)
#8 Stay Hydrated-start each morning with a glass of water and sip on H2O throughout the day.
#7Eat Real Food-save the processed, prepackaged food for emergencies, like when you may starve to death. FYI (the human body can survive for 21 days without food!)
#6 Lift Weights-pick up something heavy every day. Use a weight, your own body weight or borrow a small child!
#5 Sleep-your body needs the time to repair and recover. Don't be a hero with baggy eyes!
#4 Quiet- spend some time each day in prayer, meditation, or just silence.
#3 Collect Relationships- not things
#2 Be You- it is tempting to want to be like others, but God created each person with purpose!
#1 It's your life-.........................
"It's my life, it's now or never, I ain't gonna live forever, I just want to live while I'm alive" Bon Jovi may have got it right!
Happy New Year!
"Feel the Rush"
Today is the first day of the rest of your life. What do you want your life to look like? The amazing thing is the choice is yours. I have spent many years of my life being passive, allowing things to happen to me. How many of us are spectators in our own lives? I know I was for years. I watched my energy decrease. I was tired, bloated, and had brain fog. Most days I woke up only to look forward to my next nap.Then I began an active quest for energy, peace and joy! I can honestly say it was a long journey, which I am still on. I am no longer looking for the magic pill! Magic hacks....yes! At 51 I feel more energetic than I have in years. If I were to give everyone the top 3 things to allow you to live your life with energy, peace and joy...
