Some think that being healthy and well is only related to what we eat, drink, and whether we have an active life-style. The truth is, our wellness and well-being goes much deeper than that. We are powerful beings capable of incredible things. With the right thoughts, decisions and habits, we can heal, reverse, and prevent many illnesses. I hope by the time you finish reading this article, you will take your health to a new level.
Here Are 7 Wellness Tips…
1- Have a good attitude, love yourself, and be thankful for your body. Our health starts with our attitude. As we think, our brain sends signals to our body, and an array of chemicals is released. When we think negative, stressful thoughts, the wrong amount of chemicals are released which distort the DNA and immune cells and cause other havoc-breaking consequences. Also, please love yourself (every aspect of you), and when it comes to your body realize you are not your body; you are much more than that. Your body is the earthly vessel that was given to you created in the image of your creator. Also, as you love yourself, you will love others. We can only give as much as we have for ourselves. Last, exercise gratefulness every hour of the day for your body and this will translate into joy, happiness, better food choices, better skin, more energy, and better health.
2- Get educated about the ingredients in what you eat and drink. You need to take this one very seriously. You do not want to perish for a lack of knowledge and end up being a statistical number. Learn about sodium, refined sugars, simple carbohydrates, branched-chain amino acids, carbonated drinks (diet or not), plant based proteins versus animal based proteins, and everything that you can possibly learn. Think before you eat.
3- Exercise. This one doesn’t have to be explained much. Exercise has innumerable health benefits. Add a routine of cardio and strength training into your life my dear friend, and do it as a life-style and not a seasonal, emotional decision that ends up in self-sabotage and more frustration.
4- Forgive. This one is paramount. It ties up with tip #1. Lack of forgiveness is the root of many diseases. Yes, I know it is hard to swallow, but I am here to tell you the truth. We all struggle with lack of forgiveness at some point in our lives. We get hurt, betrayed, abused, mistreated, marginalized, etc… and we also make mistakes and deal with guilt and self-condemnation. We need to forgive all people and situations and accept the past as it could not have been any different. If you need help with this, get help. But please do not cover your pain with a mask because your body will take off your mask for you with a plethora of illnesses that will cost you your peace, joy, destiny, and life.
5- Drink water. This one doesn’t need explanation, but I put it on this list because most of us still live dehydrated. When we don’t drink enough water, our bodies go to the reserve in our bladder and recycles. Yep. Imagine drinking a beautiful glass of warm urine. Drink 8 to 10 glasses a day!!!
6- Be open-minded. Please do not close yourself to new ideas and discoveries because you already have a formed opinion about health and wellness. Be open to new ideas; try new foods, new recipes, and new alternatives. Sometimes we can get so used to what we have done, that new, cutting edge information passes over our heads and we miss things that could have changed our lives.
7- Know and define your purpose in life and walk in your destiny. This one will change your life if you let it. What is your purpose on the earth? What do you want to leave as a legacy when you die? How do you want people to remember you? This relates much to your health and wellness because as you discover or define your purpose, you will automatically want to be healthy and free. You will want to grow personally and spiritually (which includes much forgiving by the way), you will want to eat healthy and exercise, you will want to love and help yourself, so that you can walk in your destiny without restrictions in your mind, soul, or body.
I hope these 7 tips added value to your life. I am honored to have crossed your path, and I pray we can be always in touch somehow. To read more of what I write and offer to the world, please continue to browse Damaysi.com
