by Paige RomHowever your 2019 has started out, it has the potential to be an even better year for You. How? Well, to be brief, feeling our best from the inside out can bring a lot of pleasure and ease to an already busy and stressful day. Health complications of many kinds can make your day-to-day life difficult and uncomfortable.

What most people don’t realize is that little changes to daily lifestyle patterns can yield big, positive results in overall healthfulness. Healthfulness is like a diamond ­– it’s multi-faceted and depending on how well rounded your lifestyle patterns are, the more your health will shine like that of a beautiful, ideal cut diamond.

There are simple, healthy changes you can incorporate into your busy life in hopes of improving your overall health status and getting you to feel better and sparkle more.

1. Sleep:

Super important and the ultimate way for your body to reset itself and normalize hormones for optimum health function.

2. Eliminate Grains*:

All grains are extremely pro-inflammatory and can cause numerous health issues like obesity, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, dementia, heart disease, etc.

3. Hydration:

Water is essential for life along with aiding in digestion and promoting healthy skin.

4. Eliminate Sugar*:

Chronic sugar consumption (processed carbohydrates count, too) is toxic for the body and causes every kind of problem you can think of under the sun! Excessive weight gain and deep visceral fat, diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, rheumatoid arthritis, heart disease among them.

5. Whole Foods:

Stick with real, high quality protein, natural fats and plant food in order to live your best life. Practice eating three meals regularly to increase normal hormone function and energy levels.

6. Chronic Stress:

Stress can whack out your hormone balance thanks to an overabundance of cortisol which can cause build up of waist line fat, so slow down…breath deeper and (see #1) sleep more.

Healthfulness starts with the day-to-day choices you make regarding sleeping, eating and drinking. Don’t complicate your health more than what is required. Remember, it’s what you do everyday that may need some attention and fine tuning. Live your best life by bringing awareness to your daily habits.
