Today’s Solutions: September 25, 2022

You are your best investment — and your habits are the key to how well you thrive in life. For a balanced lifestyle that works with your body’s natural biorhythms, consider implementing these nine powerful habits into your life.

Eat an earlier, lighter dinner

A big meal hours before bedtime can do your body a great disservice, as leads to an increase in blood sugar levels, regardless of calories. This overtime leads to an increased risk of multiple diseases such as type 2 diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, and obesity. So maybe consider diverting your largest meal to lunchtime. 

Choose to overt stress

Instead of responding to your daily circumstances in a frustrated manner, try pausing frequently, relaxing into your breath, and feeling the earth beneath your feet.

Sit in silence

In our digital world, this third tip is something many of us rarely do these days! By sitting in silence, your busy mind, emotions, and nerves hit the reset button.

Go to bed early

Chances are you need more rest than you’re getting! Sleep is one of the most vital things for our bodies; as helps the brain function, is where emotions are processed, strengthens immunity, and reduces the risk of multiple diseases.

Appreciate the morning

The fifth habit may be the hardest, but it’s oh so rewarding. Instead of waking up and dreading the morning, relish the early moments of the day and set your day up right.

Get your breath going before breakfast

Try five to 20 minutes of yoga, HIIT exercises, or anything else that gets the heart pumping.

Eat a plant-focussed diet

We all know by now that factory farming meat is slowly killing our beautiful planet, so why not do something to help the Earth and your body to switch to a plant-focussed diet. A healthy mix of seeds, sprouts, fruits, shoots, and leaves will help your body run optimally.

Self-massage your body

Take a moment or two after you shower and give yourself a quick massage. Notice if you feel more comfortable in your skin.

Notice your senses

Take a break from your computer and come to your senses. Feel all your senses individually and you will open up your lenses of perception.
