Healthy Living Guide

When cleansing the body, it is useful to improve all areas of your life at the same time. Here are some things you could start with:

When detoxing it is natural to start to focus more on you and on things that matter. So please don't feel guilty for doing so.

Healthy Living Guide - 4 Important Steps

Here are also few tips that can be useful when wanting to live an amazing life!

1. Work Less

What? Really? Yes! Research has shown that something many elderly people on their death beds say they regret is having worked too much. And not having spent enough time with their family.

At the time, they were just too "busy", not only with work but with everything else too. If they could change something about the past, that is what they would change.

So, make sure you don't end up feeling the same way when you are old.

2. If you Have to - Find New Friends

Something that has been proven to make you feel good is to surround yourself with happy, non judgmental people. 

I know, friends like that are not always that easy to find, but when you do, make sure you take care of your friendship to keep them in your life. 

When I joined the nutrition school where I studied, I suddenly found myself in a community full of amazing like minded interesting people.

Maybe you could find a group somewhere online, where you find a lot of positive people also interested in eating healthier and detoxing?

At facebook.com/nutridivas I try to post inspiring and positive messages to help people feel happier. But not only that though, I also post detox related stuff.

But also, even though your old friends and family members sometimes don't seem to be helping you to get where you want, it's still important not to block them from your life... be forgiving and understanding instead. And never take anyone for granted.

3. Spend Less Time in front of a Screen

Spending less time on your phone and watching less TV should be a goal. You don't want to spend a lot of your time doing things you won't remember 2 years from now. It's hard to remember what you did online a few years ago but it's easy to remember some fun get together, a really good book, some visit somewhere or for example a hike to a beautiful place.

Most doctors who had talks for us during my time at the nutrition and healthy diet program, said that thirty minutes a day of exercise is what we all should aim for. Some say that less is totally fine too. I often just do 10 minutes and not even every day and still feel great. But I also walk quite a lot, to work and back and I also go home during my lunch break, so all in all that is an hour of walking a day.

4. Take Care of Your Gut

You know what? Without health we have nothing.

Did you know that if the gut is healthy most often the rest of the body is too.

So taking care of your gut is important.

How do we do that? By making sure we eat foods with good bacterias in it.

You can make your own "sauerkraut" for example - fermented kale. It's FULL of good bacterias that your colon and your whole gut will love!

There is no need for you to do exactly what the woman in the video does every morning. It's hard, I've tried. Just do something similar. Breathe deeply and on the inhale you expand your stomach and on the exhale you pull it in :)

Something else worth mentioning is that making plans regularly is a good habit. Otherwise time just flies by... and you might realize one day that things haven't really turned out the way you wanted.
