General Wellness Tips

Get regular exercise. 3 to 5 times a week. Mix up cardio, resistance and flexibility exercises (check out Crossfit).

Chew your foods thoroughly and don’t skip meals.

Try to eat in a quiet, relaxed state. This will vastly improve your digestion.  Try taking 3 deep breaths prior to starting your meal.

Don’t smoke.

Get plenty of good sleep (7 to 8 hours a night).

Limit alcohol and coffee/tea consumption. Choose organic.

Practice relaxation techniques. Find something that works for you. Meditation, walking, reading, long baths, gardening, whatever relaxes you. Try to do a little every day. Stress is extremely hard on our bodies and unfortunately is often unavoidable. Do what you can to fight its effects.
