How to Get Healthy: 3 Simple Steps to Better Health
Are you looking for ways to get healthy, find more energy, and find more motivation for meeting your weight loss goals? Certain aspects of your mental and physical health play huge roles in your ability to lose weight. As such, it’s important to have healthy habits and good nutrition to improve your mental and physical health.
Here are the 3 most important things you can do to get healthy.
Step 1: Reduce Stress
Ridding your life of stress may seem like it’s hard to do. However, there are ways to reduce your stress and improve your nervous system. You can start setting aside at least 20-30 minutes a day for relaxation through meditation. If not every day, try for at least 2 or 3 times a week. Yoga is another great habit which helps to lower stress continuously over time while adding many other benefits to your weight loss goals.
For an ‘immediate fix’ practice some deep breathing techniques when you start to become overwhelmed. Oxygen does wonders for the brain and has been proven to reduce stress levels. If at all possible, take a walk while you’re breathing deeply. Fresh air is best and walking will improve your circulation. Better circulation means that oxygen will be distributed to your brain and blood vessels more efficiently.
Step 2: Alkalize, Alkalize, Alkalize!
The most effective weight loss plans are those with a diet designed to lower pH levels in the body. A higher pH means higher acid levels. The more acid contained within your body, the harder your body needs to work to healthfully dispose of its waste. Consider adding high alkaline foods to your diet. This would be foods like beets, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, cayenne pepper, garlic, lemons, radishes, turnip greens, and spinach.
Step 3 – Digestive System Maintenance
One of the body’s functions that’s most affected by high levels of acid is the digestive system. Coincidentally, the digestive system is one of the primary bodily functions with the largest influence on health. If you have a healthy and optimally performing digestive system, waste is secreted much more quickly. A more rapid secretion of waste reduces the amount of time that fat cells have to build up in your system. Furthermore, having a good digestive system is one of the best ways to improve the health of your immune system.
To keep your digestive system running as efficiently as possible, consider adding raw sauerkraut to your diet. Sauerkraut contains powerful enzymes which help to break down hard to digest foods like sugars, fast food, processed foods, and other foods classified as Public Enemy Number 1 against weight loss and better health.
