When it comes to your health and wellness, getting started can be so overwhelming. Between Keto, vegan, paleo, low fat, Weight Watchers and all the information that is constantly being thrown at you, its nearly impossible to know which route to take on your journey to becoming your healthiest and most badass self.
I want to help take the stress away and give you 5 TIPS TO TRANSFORM YOUR HEALTH
Tip #1) Start each morning with warm water and fresh lemon . This will help to hydrate you first thing when your body needs it the most. The lemon will help to gently detoxify your liver while hydrating your colon which promotes the perfect morning poop! Lemon is also high in vitamin C which is going to boost your immune system and make your skin glow.
Tip # 2) Green Juice / Powder. Let’s be serious, making fresh pressed green juice every day is a huge pain. I like to rid myself of the stress and purchase a quality greens powder. Currently I am using Progressive Greens Powder.
Incorporating greens into your daily routine is going to help boost your energy, cleanse your body, and make you feel amazing! When you wake up and drink a glass of green Juice, you kick-start the body’s processes of daily detoxing, producing natural energy, and managing stress.
Tip #3) 20 minutes of gentle yoga and light stretching. This has been a big game changer for me. Last December I decided I would start stretching 3 mornings per week. I have noticed a huge change in my body. I am less stiff and tight, I can squat lower, jump higher, and my posture is improving! Also my chronic hip pain is virtually gone. I am so happy I finally decided to make stretching a part of my self care routine. I actually love heading to Youtube and finding videos to follow along too. For all our RFO girls you can search for stretch videos in the members area :)
Tip #4) Collagen Powder. You have heard Ash and I talk about our love of collagen for years now. My fave right now is Organika Enhanced Collagen Powder There are SO many benefits to including this into your daily routine. Here are a few of the reasons why I have collagen every single day.
Skin Health – Collagen contains the key amino acids glycine, lysine and proline for revitalizing, firming and smoothing your skin, while helping to strengthen your nails, and BONUS it totally helps with hair growth.
Gut Health – Increased intestinal permeability is a likely cause of various ailments, such as allergies and metabolic and cardiovascular disturbances. Intestinal permeability is found in many severe clinical situations and common disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Organika®’s Enhanced Collagen™ contains glutamine which is known for reducing intestinal permeability. Remember, optimal health comes from a healthy and healed gut. Gut health = overall health
Tip #5) Self-development – Optimal health is about so much more than what you eat. It’s about your mind, body and soul. I like to spend 20-30 minutes a day either reading a self-development book or listening to a podcast. One of my all-time self love podcasts, other than That Badass Podcast of course, is Earn Your Happy by Lori Harder. Her podcast was the first podcast I ever listened to. it changed my life in so many ways. In fact today, I was feeling my anxiety coming on, so I downloaded an episode, put on my headphones and went for a 30 minute walk to calm my brain. I was able to relax and turn my anxiety into motivation.
I hope you find these 5 tips helpful when it comes to leaning into a stronger, healthier version of yourself.
