Creando tu rutina holística con 6 simples pasos diarios

Creando tu rutina holística con 6 simples pasos diarios

Algunos de estos pasos diarios de bienestar que ya puede hacer, algunos pueden ser nuevos para usted. De cualquier manera, este es un muy buen comienzo para vivir tu vida con intenciones más holísticas.

¡Y todos los pasos son de bajo mantenimiento con un alto rendimiento holístico para su cuerpo!

  • ¡Comienza tu día con un vaso de agua de limón! El limón está lleno de vitamina C y ayuda a estimular tu sistema inmunológico. Agregar limón a su agua también ayuda a equilibrar su pH al alcalinizar su cuerpo. El limón fresco acelera la digestión y puede ayudar a aliviar el estreñimiento.
  • Nunca te saltes el desayuno. El desayuno es la comida más importante del día, ya que prepara el escenario para el resto del día. Si te saltas el desayuno, tu cuerpo entrará en modo de hambre y te encontrarás ansiando carbohidratos y dulces el resto del día. Comience el día con un batido de proteínas, huevos y verduras o un tazón de avena con fruta fresca y nueces.
  • Mueve tu cuerpo todos los días! El ejercicio evita el aumento de peso, aumenta la energía y disminuye la depresión. También ayuda a reducir la ansiedad. El ejercicio aumenta el flujo sanguíneo y proporciona al cuerpo y a la sangre más oxígeno, dejándote feliz y vibrante. Caminar, andar en bicicleta, correr, bailar, cualquier cosa que haga que sus pies se muevan y su corazón bombee es crucial para su bienestar.
  • Alcaliza tu cuerpo. Cosas como el café, el azúcar, los refrescos y el alcohol pueden ser acidificantes para el cuerpo. Beba un jugo verde fresco o un batido verde regularmente para alcalinizar su sistema. Las verduras de hoja verde son altamente alcalinas y ayudan a que el cuerpo vuelva a un estado de pH equilibrado. Esto es extremadamente útil cuando el cuerpo es demasiado ácido debido al exceso de azúcar o la fiesta demasiado fuerte. El té verde matcha es una alternativa fantástica al café. Tiene un alto contenido de antioxidantes, contiene catequinas que combaten el cáncer, aumenta los niveles de energía y contiene altas cantidades de l-teanina que mejora su estado de ánimo al aumentar los niveles de serotonina.
  • Relájate y descansa. Tome un baño de sal desintoxicante de Epsom con 10 gotas de aceite esencial de lavanda pura para relajar el cuerpo, aliviar la tensión muscular y reducir el estrés. El aceite de lavanda desencadena reacciones cerebrales que promueven la relajación.
  • ¡Dormir! Trata de dormir entre 7 y 8 horas por noche. Haz tu mejor esfuerzo para acostarte antes de la medianoche. ¡De esa manera, su cuerpo pasará por un ciclo de sueño completo y se despertará para sentirse descansado y renovado!

CREATING YOUR HOLISTIC ROUTINE WITH 6 SIMPLE DAILY STEPS

Some of these daily wellness steps you may already do, some may be new to you. Either way, this is a really good jump start to living your life with more holistic intentions.

And all of the steps are low maintenance with a high holistic yield for your body!

  • Start your day with a glass of lemon water! Lemon is full of vitamin C & helps boost your immune system. Adding lemon to your water also helps balance your pH by alkalizing your body. Fresh lemon speeds up digestion and can help to relieve constipation.
  • Don’t ever skip breakfast. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day as it sets the stage for the rest of the day. If you skip out on breakfast your body goes into starvation mode and you will find yourself craving carbs and sweets the rest of the day. Start your day with a protein smoothie, eggs & greens or a bowl of oatmeal topped with fresh fruit and nuts.
  • Move your body every single day! Exercise staves off weight gain increase energy and lower depression. It also helps to reduce anxiety. Exercising increases blood flow and provides the body and blood with more oxygen leaving you feeling happy and vibrant.  Walk, bike, run, dance, anything that gets your feet moving and your heart pumping is crucial to your well-being.
  •  Alkalize your body. Things like coffee, sugar, soda, and alcohol can be acidifying to the body. Drink a fresh green juice or green smoothie regularly to alkalize your system.  Leafy greens are highly alkaline and help bring the body back to a pH-balanced state. This is extremely helpful when the body is overly acidic from too much sugar or partying a little too hard.  Matcha green tea is a fantastic alternative to coffee. It is high in antioxidants, contains cancer-fighting catechins, boosts energy levels, and contains high amounts of l-theanine which enhances your mood by increasing serotonin levels.
  • Relax & unwind. Take a detoxifying Epsom salt bath with 10 drops of pure lavender essential oil to relax the body, relieve muscle tension, and reduce stress. Lavender oil triggers brain reactions that promote relaxation.
  • Sleep! Aim for 7-8 hours of sleep per night. Try your best to get to bed before midnight. That way, your body will go through a full rem sleep cycle and you will wake to feel rested and renewed!

CREATING YOUR HOLISTIC ROUTINE WITH 6 SIMPLE DAILY STEPS
Organic vs. Non-Organic Foods: What’s the Difference?

Organic vs. Non-Organic Foods: What’s the Difference?

In examining the question of organic vs. non-organic foods, let’s start with the keyword here: “organic.” Technically speaking, organic means that something comes from living (or formerly living) matter. That includes you and me, the birds and the bees, your morning cup of coffee or tea, and anything that grows on trees, shrubs, and vines.

Organic food products are different because they are grown and processed with organic farming methods, which exclude certain practices that are normal in the mass production of non-organic foods.

Proponents of organic farming point to benefits for the environment, like less water pollution and better soil quality. Organic meats come from livestock raised under more humane conditions. Organic produce and meat also may have higher levels of certain nutrients and fewer pesticide residues.

Produce and Grain

Organic plant farming practices include:

  • No use of synthetic fertilizers, which may contain chemicals manufactured from fossil fuels. Instead, organic farmers rely on mulching, composting, and animal manure to enrich the soil.
  • No fertilizers derived from sewage sludge, which is the residue left over after human waste is processed.
  • No synthetic herbicides. Weeds are controlled with crop rotation, mulching, tilling, and hand weeding.
  • Avoid the use of synthetic pesticides. Instead, organic farmers use organic approaches like insects that eat pests, traps, and naturally-produced pesticides. But there is a loophole: organic farmers may use certain chemical pesticides in small amounts, following regulations for USDA-certified organic foods.
  • No genetically engineered crops, more commonly known as genetically modified organisms, or GMOs. Some GMO crops are designed to produce natural pesticides or to be resistant to synthetic weed killers so farmers can apply more of them and increase crop yields.
  • No irradiation to kill diseases or pests, or to extend shelf life. Irradiation means exposing the food, dairy, or meat to ionizing radiation.

Organic vs. Non-Organic: Choose “Cleaner” Produce

The Environmental Working Group (EWG), a nonprofit organization, publishes an annual report, the Shoppers Guide to Pesticides in Produce. The report is based on USDA pesticide residue testing.

According to the EWG, the following 15 fruits and vegetables have the least residues relative to other options: avocados, sweet corn, pineapples, frozen sweet peas, onions, papayas, eggplants, asparagus, kiwis, cabbages, cauliflower, cantaloupes, broccoli, mushrooms, and honeydew melons.

The following 12 fruits and vegetables have comparatively higher amounts of pesticide residues: strawberries, spinach, kale, nectarines, apples, grapes, peaches, cherries, pears, tomatoes, celery, and potatoes.
