Vitamin D i'm not telling you to bake in the sun, but now a days Americans are staying indoors so much, they don't get enough vitamin D so take a walk. all you need is 15 minutes in the sun a day but still shield your face and neck with uva/uvb protection aka sun screen.
Chores! tired of working out? you can burn a lot of calories just sweeping the floor! Clearing the air and the clutter, i believe, can also help clear up your mind. just one less thing to think about. the key thing is start anywhere. & the interesting thing about this is that the people featured on the oprah show live simple lives with little or no technology, so they do everything themselves and by hand. They don't even have to think about exorcising since it's already apart of thier everyday life. Most Americans on the other hand have to set time aside to workout. how inefficiant is that?
Diet. Japan is known to have the most long-living people. their secret to staying healthy? take your time to eat and only until your 80% full and no more. they have this saying that they say all the time to remind themselves but anyway it is so simple, i feel stupid. why didn't i think of that! for the past year i've been eating so fast that before i knew it i was bloated. ...haha
here are some other simple changes you can make for your diet:
insted of Soda (diet or regular cause they're both bad) opt for Water.
Supstitute Mayonaies for Avacado -no oils, no fat, just amazing creamy taste
ice cream-->Yogurt -now they come in yummy flavors & contains good-for-you bacteria
Fruit Bars-->REAL Fruit -cut out the high fructose corn syup and chilled fruit is just as refreshing
White Bread-->Wheat -white is all sugars, wheat has the good stuff
Give Some Time to Yourself. to relax the mind and body (i'm suprised they didn't mention this) & no this does not include sleeping or watching your favourite tv show, as relaxing as that sounds. But try putting in mediation or yoga into your everyday routine. And you can set it anyway you want. i mean don't exactly do yoga... i light candles, i listen to indie, close my eyes and do my own form of yoga which includes stretching and ab workouts then i go straight to bed. that's my nightly routine in a nutshell.
