Rules for A Healthy Life

1. Do what feels natural.
2. Drink 8 to 10 glasses of water daily to help you with the digestion of food, absorption of nutrients, and the elimination of toxins from your body.
3. Eat a well-balanced diet – avoid processed/boxed food and dairy products (other then butter and heavy cream), increase organically grown fruits and vegetables, animal protein – eat when you’re hungry and don’t stress if you skip a meal or even two.
4. Take daily vitamins, mineral and herbal supplements to maintain your overall health or deal with your specific health problems.
5. Exercise on a daily basis for at least 30 minutes per day. Brisk walk, aerobics, or just any kind of bodily movement can do wonders for your health, but don’t over-exercise
6. Take time off if you feel tired.
7. Practice yoga. It’s good for both your body and mind.
8. Try to wakeup without an alarm. You should sleep 6 to 8 hours per day. This will help your body to replenish itself and gives your body time to rebuild its cells. Lack of sleep make you feel tired and affect your eating habits. Adequate sleep is essential for your overall health and well-being.
9. Manage stress by doing meditation - meditation can help reduce stress, because it helps quiet your mind. Even if you just meditate 15 minutes per day, the result will amaze you.
10. Spend 5 to 10 minutes per day to practice deep breathing can improve your overall health. Deep breathing reduces stress, relaxes your muscles, improve your oxygen intake and delivery to all your organs and stimulate your lymphatic system.
11. Listen to music and dance every day.
12. Surround yourself with friends and family members who are supportive.
13. Find things to laugh about on a daily basis. Laughter releases endorphins, boost your immune system, increases blood flow and relaxes your body.
14. Life is too short so you should follow your bliss. People who are happy and have a fulfilled life tend to be healthier and live longer.
15. Maintain a balanced lifestyle. There should be a balance between your work time and your leisure time. Remind yourself, “All work and no play make Jack a dull boy.”
16. Have a positive outlook. People who are positive tend to have better health and success in life then those who are negative thinkers.
17. Practice gratitude daily – it is good for your soul as well as your health.
18. Forgive yourself and others. Bearing grudges is bad for your health and well-being.
19. Play in the sun, have fun, laugh, smile, relax, discover, travel, learn and enjoy life like a daring adventure!
20. Accept yourself, your capability and your shortcomings.
