Hope everyone is enjoying the new season & taking advantage of the fresh air, sunshine & beautiful natural scenery!
Here are some of my photos from the Northern California area.
~Tips for Feeling Great~
*Get ample sunshine (or at least 30 minutes / day) — As well as healthy non-synthetic skin protectants; raw foods, healthy virgin/raw oils & natural after sun formulas.
~Sunlight improves working memory, mood and vitamin D3 production.
— You can visit sites like ewg.org to find out where your household & beauty products stand when it comes to ethics and current health standards/research.
*Breathe Clean Air – House Plants, air purifiers, moving to more densely forested areas or taking a regular break from the city smog can make all the difference in your outlook and health. Get out and hike once a week or visit a local park with your furry friends.. And non-furry friends too. Nobody is meant to be boxed in – We all love nature.
*Get Rest — as much as your body requires, even if it means a nap here or there. Over 70% of our sensory stimulation is through visual intake — Close your eyes for 5-15 minutes, relax and reboot your sensory system.
*Get enough fiber to keep your metabolism ramped up and moving– You will feel the extra energy preserved by the digestive aid.
~Fruits and Veggies are very high in fiber per unit & are easily digested by a healthy gut. They have high water content (hydration/detox) – Fiber (Digest/Detox) – Enzymes/Amino Acids (Clean, Digest & Build)
Fruits and veggies contain important phytonutrients, “free-radical” (think aging) fighting antioxidants, & enzymes to digest & uptake minerals // vitamins in the most biologically streamlined manner. For more information.
~They also help clean the intestines and colon of buildup from otherwise non digestible material/plaque. Enzymes / Pro-Pre Biotics are essentially, the Dental Hygienist of your GI Tract – Visit them often for optimal health.
*Stay hydrated – Pick your favorite healthy beverage [[ Fruit infused water – Herbal Tea – Antioxidant rich juice ]] & go to town : )
~Never feel guilty getting extra fluids, Nutritionally dense food (AKA calories) or necessary brain fueling Glucose. “Glucose is on the World Health Organization’s List of Essential Medicines, the most important medications needed in a basic health system”
~Every cell in your body is alive and requires replenishing of nutrients and hydration to carry out metabolic waste and keep your organs healthy and productive.
~Avoid beverages and food items containing: corn syrups, processed sugar, “sugar-free” chemical sweeteners like aspartame, sucralose (Splenda) , Equal, Sweet ‘N Low, as they contribute to Chronic Illness such as; Insulin Resistance, Obesity & Acidosis of the Lymphatic System.
