Starting With The Basics

There are a few things we can all do to be healthy. And the best part is they don’t have to cost anything. So here are some ideas:

Determination – try to have small goals and stay with them. It takes 30 days to make something a habit.
Water – this is something most people don’t get enough of. Our bodies are made up of nearly 70% water. The Institute of Medicine determined that an adequate intake (AI) for men is roughly 3 liters (about 13 cups) of total water a day. The AI for women is 2.2 liters (about 9 cups) of total water a day. – Mayo Clinic
Sleep – if you can fall asleep anywhere anytime, you are sleep deprived. If you need an alarm clock to wake up, you are sleep deprived. Not consuming caffeine after 1pm may help you have a more restful sleep. Turn off all electronics (TV’s, computer, ect) 1 hour before bed, this help the body wind down for sleep. This is the advise form my son’s doctor.
Laugh - smiling and laughing produce endorphins which we all know helps us feel better.
Exercise – go on a walk, ride your bike, jog, or play with your kids at a park.

In addition to these things, there are things that cost money, and should be invested in. If you only buy one thing, get a good quality multivitamin. My husband and I use Nature Sunshine’s Super Supplemental Vitamin & Minerals. My boys use Sunshine Hero’s vitamin and minerals.
These vitamins can be found at our website . Striving to do these things and taking our daily vitamins has helped us all to feel better.

Good Health To You !
