There are lots of simple things we can do without taking herbs or medications that will help us feel and look great. Here are some simple, effective, and powerful ways to change life and feel better.
First - Change our Mindset. Our mind set is everything, to look at life from a positive perspective changes everything. When we feel down and out we also start to have aches, pains, and we start the cycle downward towards disease. Choosing to be different by choosing to be happy changes our body through the mind/body connection thus we boost up our immune system and feel great again.
Second - Smile. Smiling is something that many of us don’t do in this day and age, but it does make physiological change in our bodies. Just turning up the sides of our mouths and walking around seems to change the cycle of hormones in our bodies and get serotonin moving through our brain. Thus we feel good and look better because we have a smile on our face.
Third - Walk. Walking is simple and anyone can lose10 lbs in no time at all. Just walking fast enough to break into a sweat, but not jogging can increase metabolism, improve mood, and make us feel better. It improves our cardiovascular system, moves lymph around our body to cleans away toxins, and invigorates our endocrine system. Walking at least 20 minutes a day is great for the body and walking 5 miles a day is fantastic.
Fourth - Drink more water. Lots of people are caught up into drinking lots of caffeinated drinks and soda, and those two things actually dehydrate the body and thus we feel weak, have headaches, and don’t feel great. Drinking one liter of water a day will do the body good and flush out toxins thus keeping away aches and pains. It also improves metabolism because without water our system does not work correctly in the process of burning calories. And lots of water also helps us replenish our skin for a beautiful complexion.
Fifth - Hug someone and feel great. Science has shown that when we get a hug we feel better and that changes our body. When we give a hug or receive a hug we release oxytocin into our body which keeps depression away. And at the same time we have feelings of self worth which brings about changes in our brain chemistry to improve our mood.
Sixth - Take a nice warm bath. We live in a crazy mixed up world where people are running here and there and stress is always building. Just taking the time to unwind and sit in a nice hot bath is a luxury that most people don’t allow themselves to have. But it can and does makes changes in our body by derailing stress and turning off cortisol and adrenalin compounds. Thus we feel better and look better because we don’t have those stress lines in our forehead… and even our voice is more relaxed.
Seventh - Wash our hands often. Our hands touch everything and there are bacteria and viruses lurking all over the place. Instead of sanitizing the world it’s much easier to just wash our hands more often… then we don’t come down with colds and flues as often. And this cuts down on sick days and in general make healthier, because don’t have fungi, chemicals, and other agents coming in contact with our skin… which in turn can make us sick.
Eighth - Disconnect. When we have so many gadgets and social media wanting our attention that we are constantly bombarded with stressful events. Shutting off our phone, computer, any other way of connecting can change everything. Studies show our stress goes down, we feel better, and thus we are less apt to snap at people and feel grumpy. Thus we don’t have stress chemicals coursing through our body that make us gain weight, unable to focus, and make us feel irritable.
Using these 8 simple ways to power up our health and vitality can make all the difference in the world. We don’t have to push iron at the gym, or run a marathon, just making some simple changes can work wonders. Sometimes we just have to keep it simple… because simple is always the best way.
