There is nothing more refreshing then a good laugh sesh with a friend or your lover. Not only do you FEEL GOOD afterwards but you get the ab workout of the century! It’s so hard sometimes to remember to be silly and live in the moment when we are bombarded with bills, work stress, house chores and just daily adult life! Wouldn’t it be so nice to be a kid again? Well you can at least act like one. Grab some snacks at the store & watch YouTube fail videos with a friend. There’s nothing better then watching people hurt themselves. This may sound cruel, but it’s true!! Or better yet, Grab a pack of beer, lay out a blanket in your back yard and reminisce with a friend about the good ol’ days. There is bound to be some laughter replaying the memories of bad wardrobe choices and old flings you would like to forget. Life is so short and when it gets overwhelming, sometimes a good laugh can bring you back to that warm feeling and remind you whats important.
In order to feel healthy and confident, everybody needs to take the time for themselves. This means catering to your appearance and giving your body a little TLC. There are days when I feel like complete dog poop. Everybody has those days when you just want to hit the OFF button and hide out in your house for a while. When I find myself in this state of mind, I put on some Beyonce and give myself a pedicure and chill out. Now this may not apply to everyone. You may not like Beyonce or you may not like feet. The point is, it’s important to take the time to do things for yourself that make you feel good. So whether that is taking a bath accompanied by a nice glass of wine or giving yourself a nice facial, the more you take time to treat yourself to some “me time” the happier you’ll be!
Surround yourself with Positivity
One of my favorites. I feed off of good energy and vibes and I am an optimist at heart. Some of us are destined to see the glass half empty. It was engrained in us as children from our worrisome parents or due to unfortunate experiences we’ve had. One of the biggest lessons I have learned in the past few years is this. Energy has power. When we put positive energy into the universe, we will attract the same energy into our lives. It’s impossible to live a healthy life when all we expect are negative outcomes. This also applies to the people in your life. Surround yourself with vibe killers and your destined to feel negative. Surround yourself with happy souls, and you will live a more positive and happy life.
Eat Healthy & Exercise
I have done so much research about different foods and the effects they have on my body. What I have found has helped me recognize what different foods do to my skin and how they make me feel. This has been such an eye opener for me! It is no surprise that when we think of health, we think of eating the right foods and living an active lifestyle. It is without a doubt the most important way to healthy living. Eating a clean diet will help you stay in shape, feel good, and give you energy. Staying active is good for the heart and keeps your body strong. We were not put on this earth to be stagnant! Our bodies are made to move! So get out and breathe some fresh air and go for a run or hike. Do whatever physical activity works for you. Some prefer to be outdoors running or hiking. Some prefer to lift in the gym or attend a fitness class. Also remember that eating a clean diet that includes veggies, fruits and lean meats will dramatically change how you feel. It’s not easy in the beginning to make a change but take baby steps. Just remember the common rule to staying fit; 80% diet 20% gym.
I love to nap. It is on my list of Top Favorite things along with Avocados and makeup. My love for napping runs deep, real deep. So this is one of my favorite ways to stay healthy. With the technology now days and constant visual stimulation, it feels like our minds are on overdrive. Which makes it difficult at the end of the day to stop the wheels in our heads from turning. Shut the blinds, turn off your phone, and cozy up in a soft blanket. Let go of the worries and stresses and take an hour to re-start your body and mind. Sundays are a great day for this. This is usually the day that most people have time to hang out and relax before the work week begins. Nap at least once or twice a week when you feel stressed and your body and mind will thank you!
