healthy bodyKeeping fit and healthy is key to increasing your energy and happiness levels. Learning how to have a healthy body routine is unique to you and your lifestyle.

Listen to your body

Many of us become so caught up by life’s daily pressures and stresses that we forget about our bodies, or we feel we don’t have the time to spend on taking care of our bodies. Neglecting our bodies can lead to serious problems in the long run.

It is important to stay in tune with your body and to take note of any signals that it is giving you, such as lack of energy, stress related symptoms, pains or aches. We don’t need to run to the doctor every time we feel out of sorts, but we can learn to listen and understand the underlying causes of any discomfort or dis-ease. We can even learn how to heal ourselves!

If we take responsibility for the way we treat our bodies we can avoid having to rely on doctors and running up unnecessary medical bills. Prevention is easier than cure.

How to have a healthy body

Exercise

Some people love physical exercise and sports, but those of us (like me!), who struggle with the thought of doing regular exercise, can find simple, quick and fun and varied ways to keep fit, e.g.

  • Walking in nature
  • Dancing and playing
  • Yoga
  • Rebounding

Diet

It’s OK to pig out occasionally, but in general it is necessary to stick to a healthy diet if you want to stay energetic and healthy.

Detox

Detoxing your body regularly will help your body to function and heal properly. You will feel lighter and more energetic.

Drink plenty of water to help flush toxins and to keep your organs hydrated. 

Sleep

Getting enough sleep is necessary for the body to self-regulate and to repair.

Massage

Massage releases feel-good hormones in our body and helps to heal.
