Think Thin Thursday ~ Accept Your Greatness

By
Real Estate Agent with Florida Supreme Realty SL514814
 

Here is a list of 15 simple things to consider incorporating into your healthy routine to help balance your mind, body, and spirit.

1. Exercise - Find an exercise you enjoy and start doing it regularly.

2. Be grateful - Stop to think about the things you have going for you and appreciate them.

3. Get plenty of sleep - Sleep is regenerative for your body. The more sleep you get the better you will perform the next day.

4. Breathe deeply - Whenever you think about it stop and take a deep breath. Over time this will become a healthy habit.

5. Install a shower filter - Chlorine is poison. You don't want to inhale it or absorb it through your skin while showering.

6. Ground yourself - Literally, plant your bare feet on the earth as often as possible. Grass or beach, it doesn't matter.

7. Eat organic - Chemicals are used to kill pests on the crops. They are not good for us either.

8. Do more yoga - Great for the body and mind. mindbodygreen readers know the importance of this.

9. Smile more - It feels great and is catching.

10. Spend more time with family and loved ones - In our busy lives we need to make time for the people who matter to us most.

11. Live your passion - Do more of what you love.

12. Meditate - Set time aside daily to rest your mind.

13. Drink clean water - Get a filtration system for your drinking water. Fluoride is not good for your body.

14. Get outdoors more - Go for a hike ride and enjoy nature.

15. Eat plenty of greens - Dark leafy greens are rich in vitamins, minerals and chlorophyll. They help alkalize the body.

Good morning Kevin. Great list. There are a few I should have paid more attention to over the years! Enjoy your day!

I don't expect anyone to undertake doing all of them at once but a couple incorporated into your existing routine can have a wonderful effect.

I like these most:

13. Drink clean water - Get a filtration system for your drinking water. Fluoride is not good for your body.

14. Get outdoors more - Go for a hike ride and enjoy nature.

15. Eat plenty of greens - Dark leafy greens are rich in vitamins, minerals and chlorophyll. They help alkalize the body.

Yep, we know why fluoride is added but it should be a choice in my view. You can get a twofer with "grounding" and #14 Sham. Cancer likes acidity so #15 makes perfect sense to me. Thank you for checking in!

Thanks to my BARFF Nina Hollander I'm getting mind, body, and spirit back into line with her advice to see an acupuncturist to help me get the pain of arthritis back under control Kevin J. May .

Jul 26, 2018 08:16 AM
Kevin J. May

I should have guessed that Nina Hollander knows all about holistic treatments. Thousands of years of use and historical data proves that it must be effective.

Kevin,

All good advice, and all that we have been doing since we have been together.  And since Bob "RealMan" Timm mentioned acupuncture, I highly recommended.  Mine worked miracles for me.  A

Alexandra,I'm jumping in to see if it can assist me with some neuropathy. I'll let you know in the next month or so.

Jul 26, 2018 01:10 PM
Bob "RealMan" Timm

It's working for me A. of Ron and Alexandra Seigel . I just completed my 4th visit. It's not immediate but it's a whole lot longer lasting, more effective, and better for you than pain killers.

Hi Jeffrey- I need to work on getting more sleep!  We love eating spinach because we feel it gives us so much energy. 

Jul 26, 2018 05:41 PM
Kevin J. May

Don't forget to log that into your Fitbit. Spinach is excellent for powering up the red blood cells with its iron and adding more oxygen into the body. Who's Jeffrey?

I got these things down and at 70 you need a turbocharger on them.

Outstanding post Kevin J. May with common sense tips for a healthy mind and healthy body.  This should be a FEATURE!

The common denominator with all 15 of these suggestions is that each on its own reduces stress. The likes of which many people have not yet learned how to combat or recognize.

Barefoot as often as possible!

Connecting with earth is unfortunatly less frequent as we age. The sensation can't be beat Eva.
