These are our super tips for super nourishment.
Sometimes the simple things are the most effective.
1. Sleep more
Get 8 hours sleep as a daily minimum. Find sleep difficult? Sprinkle lavender on your pillow, drink valerian tea, use an audio meditation CD like the sound of the ocean or birdsong to help lull your consciousness to sink and settle.
2. Drink more water
We need at least 2 litres per day which equates to 8 generous glasses of fresh water. Filtered is best. Be mindful if you buy bottled; plastic is seriously harmful to the environment and there is the potential of leached chemicals. Glass is equally not good for the environment. If you have to buy bottled, be sure to re-use or re-cycle as possible.
Doesn't matter what you do; jogging, running, walking, skipping, jumping, play tennis, badminston, football, swim, yoga, cycle, box, kickbox, karate, tai chi, hockey, aerobics, psycle, pilates, dance. Do something. And do it every day. Sure; don;t go exhausting the muscles by practicing 3 hours of yoga each and every day. Mix it up. Have your 'rest' days so your muscles can repair and rebuild to be stronger & longer. But do something that involves physical movement every single day. Don't let your body stagnate like a pool of mouldy water; get moving and let the body detoxify and restore.
4. Eat well and often
No starvation plan ever worked. Starving your body means you'll starve it of vital nutrition and eventually you will crave the things you starve yourself of. Eat good, health-ful meals; freshly prepare as much as possible and eat foods in their whole, unprocessed state. Get organic where possible and choose good quality ingredients. Your body is your temple. You only get one 'you' and you are literally everything you absorb. Want to be intelligent, healthy, fit and strong? Then you need to eat a varied, balanced, colourful, abundant diet. Super important.
5. Get our in nature
Spend time outdoors for at least 30 minutes every single day. What is the point in being alive if you aren't enjoying the beauty of actually being alive and enjoying fresh air, birdsong and seeing a big, open sky? Even if you live in a city, there's plenty of green spaces for you to enjoy a little down time. Part of finding the magic in any moment, is to actually be aware and awake in the first place. So put the technology aside, turn your phone to mute and get out in the fresh air. If it's raining put on a coat or take a brolly. Simple. Freash air is seriously good for your soul.
