Sharing 5 simple health hacks to a healthier lifestyle.
Adapting to a healthier lifestyle is a continual process that takes time. It’s not going to happen over night. At least it certainly didn’t for me and I’m sure you feel the same. The best thing I did was to start to change one thing at a time in my diet, which then eventually changed my entire diet, then started changing my beauty routines, fitness routines, cleaning and household products, supplements and vitamins, and more.
It’s kind of the “snowball effect” for your health.
Along my health journey to a more holistic and natural I’ve incorporated a few “health hacks” that I think you’ll definitely love to learn and even start to incorporate into your life. Here are 5 that you can start today:
- Take vitamins every day.
And not just any old vitamin. REAL vitamins filled with organic ingredients. I take a super-green vitamin, vegetarian women’s daily vitamin with extra calcium, vitamin b-complex, biotin, and a probiotic every day. I promise that simple act of remembering to take them after I eat breakfast arms me with health for the rest of the day.
- Add flax oil to your coffee.
Hi. Life changing. For realz this is good. Flax oil is so powerful for your health. Flax oil contains omega-3 fatty acids, fights eczema, treats diabetes, improves health health, may fight cancer, etc.
- Use wooden peppermint toothpicks instead of gum.
Coming from an ex-gum addict herself. Man I really loved gum but my gut HATED it. And me. So for that I’ve pretty much broken up with you. I say that loosely because I may have a piece now and again, however, very rarely. The air bubbles it puts in my stomach causes my IBS to freak not to mention the crap that’s shoved into one piece of gum is slowly leaking into my body. YUCK. No thanks.
- Make your own household all-purpose cleaner.
I’m officially obsessed with making my own cleaners. B just laughs at me every time I’m whipping up a new concoction. Our kitchen constantly has a science experiment going on. My favorite cleaner is water, white vinegar, Thieves, and chopped fresh lemon.
- Start transitioning your beauty and/or body care products to natural products.
Again, this is a slow transition. Many think that it also has to be an expensive transition but it doesn’t have to be. Start with one thing such as tooth paste, deodorant, or mascara/foundation, and research and opt for a more natural option.
Make this transition fun! Try something out, tell a friend, and get your support system involved! The more people you surround yourself with that are making small changes to optimal health, the more likely you are to make actions routine.
As always, if you have any questions about anything, feel free to let me know!
