Six Essentials for Healthy Living
Your Choices Matter!
The choices you make in six essential areas determine whether you follow a lifestyle that results in permanent good health or one that can lead to distress, illness, depression…an unbalanced system that leads to disease.
1. What you eat.
Your diet should consist of approximately 75% fruits and vegetables and 25% everything else. This keeps your body alkaline (its natural state) instead of acidic, and helps prevent injury and disease.
2. What you drink.
Avoid stimulants such as coffee and alcohol. Drink mostly fruit juices and pure water.
3. How you exercise.
Get 30 minutes of whole body exercise three times a week. Help your body stay flexible. You’ll be surprised at how good it feels and how the tendency to suffer injuries is reduced.
4. How you rest.
Good sleep every night is essential to your body’s ability to heal and recharge itself. Avoid stimulants and heavy meals before you go to sleep.
5. What you breathe.
Clean, smoke-free air is also essential to your body’s ability to heal and recharge itself. If you can smell the air you breathe, it is probably not healthy.
6. What you think.
This, by far, is the most important of the six! What you think about, you bring about. Think about what you think about, and cancel out your negative or judgmental thoughts with positive, loving ones. And, don’t forget to forgive!
