Ok, here’s the thing – you’ve got to start somewhere.
It’s time to give yourself some TLC, stop being your own last priority. I promise that you will be more successful in ALL aspects of your life if you take care of yourself first!
So where do you start? I’ll keep it short and sweet:
Grass-fed, pasture-raised meat
Wild-caught, sustainable seafood
Organic fruits & vegetables
Nuts & seeds
Healthy fats & oils
OR NOT TO EAT:
Alcohol & caffeine (yes, I’m still working on this)
Sleep, sleep, sleep
If you’re constantly waking up in the middle of the night, see blog post Interrupted Sleep & Insomnia
Get to bed before 10pm & be consistent with your schedule to encourage healthy sleep cycles.
How much? Take your weight in pounds & divide by 2. Each ounce you drink of a diuretic (drinks containing caffeine, fruit juices, etc.) drink 1.5 ounces of water to make up for it!
When? Sip it throughout the day! Don’t chug :)
Get rid of the stresses in your life
See blog post Adrenal Fatigue: Do you have it?
Get active every day
Even if its a 20 minute walk a day, exercise helps release good hormones & encourages healthy blood flow, which is essential to your overall health.
If you’re thinking, “Ok Nichole, you said a short & sweet list…” – just start with one bullet item at a time. Just start somewhere!
