I'm not saying to eat your greens and exercise every single day; as much as it's preferred for everyone to do that, you don't necessarily have to. I'm saying that you should listen to your body and give it the love and attention it needs.
Stretch and Move
Exercising at least a few times a week improves your digestive system, keeps you in shape and gets your organs working in the right ways. Your body needs it, your soul needs it, you need it.
Water and Lots of it
The lack of water reflects not only on your physical appearance with dried lips, skin, and even hair but also internally with your digestive system, blood pressure, and can cause fatigue.
Set a goal to drink at least 2 liters or even just 1 and a half liters of water a day. Carry a bottle with you and make it a habit to be aware of your body's needs and chug that water down!
Slowly Adapt to Food
Eating the right things that your body needs like protein, greens, and home cooked meals, have so many benefits. It keeps you energetic, decreases stress, helps with your digestive track, reduces your cravings, and much more.
Keep Calm and Let your Thoughts Move onSome of us think too much, and at times it could be helpful but most of the times it's not healthy. As much as we try to stop thinking too much, we just can't. Overthinking is our enemy that brings us stress, anxiety, and headaches. We can't avoid it.
But what we can do is physically put ourselves in a position of peace and quiet. One weekend, turn off all your electronics and sit and close your eyes. At that point, your mind would still be loud and crowded, so take up the challenge to not dwell on one thought and just let it pass. Let the voices, scenes, and pictures come in and let it float away into the abyss.
Practicing this technique for about 10 minutes a few times a week improves your concentration, keeps you calm, and gets you in touch with your emotions and your body's spirit.
Treat your body with the respect it deserves. Understand it. Love it. And be one with it. It's your home, and it's you.
