Most of us have the strong desire to look and feel better. Looking and feeling great is something that many people believe is a luxury that they cannot afford or enjoy. This simply isn't true. Looking and feeling better does not happen by chance. Those people who do look and feel great are that way because they have taken some positive action. What many of us don't know is that the positive actions of looking and feeling better are both easy and simple.
If you really want to look and feel great, stop and take inventory of your current situation – after all you don't know which direction to head if you don't know from where you are starting. Unhealthy habits, including smoking or excessive drinking of alcohol, should be stopped. You already knew that one! But did you also note your personal stress level? What about the amount of rest you get each night? While everyone's situation is unique to them, many of us share some common themes – unhealthy habits, high levels of stress, and not enough rest to rejuvenate the body.
The night shift is a killer! Studies have shown that people who work at night, and sleep during the day don't live as long as people who work during the day and sleep at night. One possible reason is that Night Owls get even less deep rejuvenating sleep than those who try to sleep at night and work during the day. You may have also heard of depression occurring during the long winter months when daylight hours are at their lowest levels. While sunlight can be harmful, we all need some sunshine in our lives. Sunshine causes the brain to produce serotonin, and serotonin has a positive impact on our moods and energy levels.
After taking inventory and eliminating the unhealthy habits it is time to detoxify your body. You detoxify your body to remove all of the harmful and dangerous toxins that you have built up over your lifetime. There are a number of products, such as those offered by Life Force International, that are designed to cleanse the colon and detoxify the body that you should strongly consider. By detoxifying your body, you will begin to lay the foundation for looking and feeling great for the long term.
Next, examine what you put into your body. You may find the need to make some lifestyle changes. Drink more water, and try to drink less or better yet, eliminate sodas (carbonated beverages) and caffeinated beverages. Our bodies are made up of more than 70% water. Your body needs clear water, no teas, to cleanse and purify itself. Make sure you are drinking eight to ten glasses of water daily. Avoid fried foods and all types of junk food. Eating baked, broiled, or steamed meats and vegetables, as well as fruits, nuts, and grains will build on the foundation you started by detoxifying.
To continue your journey of looking and feeling better, make sure that you aren't allowing your body to go into starvation mode during the day. You should be eating six smaller meals each day instead of the customary three large meals. Or for some of us, eating the one really large meal when we get home from a stressful day at work and stand in front of the refrigerator gorging on whatever is easiest to grab! Studies have shown eating smaller meals throughout the day – meal snacking – leads to a 25% increase in energy and ability to concentrate. Remember that your body already goes into starvation mode each night, since you are literally fasting for twelve to thirteen hours or more between your evening meal and breakfast the following morning. This is one of the primary reasons why breakfast is one of the most important meals. Taking a nutritional supplement first thing in the morning, such as the liquid nutritional supplement called Body Balance from Life Force International, is a great way to ensure your body gets what it needs quickly.
Start an exercise regimen. This doesn't mean that you have to become a body builder, run a triathlon, or swim the English Channel each day. A brisk twenty to thirty minute walk each evening will suffice. As long as you are getting at least thirty minutes of continuous movement each and every day, you will be building on the foundation started by detoxifying your body and eating right. For even better benefits to your personal well being, do not count the time spent at work, on your feet, as movement. While it may count in terms of keeping your body in shape, a thirty minute exercise period each day is healthy for the body and the mind – it relieves stress and releases endorphins that make you feel happy and well.
Finally, you should take a good nutritional supplement, as well as a multi vitamin each day. Life Force Internationals' Body Balance is a great nutritional supplement that is highly recommended. Body Balance is a liquid supplement which means a high absorption rate by your body.
When you make these easy and really simple changes, it won't be long before you start seeing and feeling great results. Not only will you look better and feel great, but you will find that you sleep better, and that you also have a more positive outlook on life.
