Nutrocon's 25 Healthy Life Tips

Nutritional supplements, planned by a health professional to meet your individual needs, should be taken daily.
Use your brain to its fullest extent with crossword puzzles, sudoku, and/or solving problems in difficult life situations.
Test your Vitamin D3 blood level, and increase your dosage if your number is lower than 50. Also, make sure to get 15 minutes of sunlight whenever possible.
Rest with restorative REM sleep, which means falling asleep by 11:00 P.M.
Older people benefit from exercise, just as much as do younger people. Tai Chi is the perfect activity for stretching, focusing, and healing.
Chemicals in food, air, and water that are harmful to you should be completely avoided. If they cannot be avoided, detoxify safely with nutritional oral agents and infrared treatments.
Organic foods that are antibiotic and hormone-free should make up most of your diet. Some toxins can be removed by rinsing or soaking fruits and vegetables in filtered water mixed with a little baking soda.
Nutritious meals that are primarily prepared at home will nurture both your body and soul.
Sugar and Sugar Substitutes (except Stevia) should be removed from your vocabulary and from your diet.

Healthy eating, particularly a well-balanced Mediterranean style plan, will give you physical, mental, and emotional energy.
Eliminate taking any unnecessary medication and educate yourself regarding the benefits and side effects of each medication prescribed for you.
Avoid food allergens and foods to which you notice an intolerance.
Laugh heartily and often. "Laugh and the world laughs with you. Cry and you cry alone.
Take at least 16 deep breaths daily, one breath for each waking hour.
Have a positive outlook.
There are very few wrongs that can't be righted.
Your main drinks should be filtered water, unsweetened tea, and coffee, if tolerated.

Load up on probiotics to promote healthy gut flora and to prevent food-borne illness. Washing your hands thoroughly while preparing food and before eating will also help prevent illness in your digestive tract.
Ingest your food slowly and in a calming environment. Chew well to digest well.
Fruits and vegetables should be the mainstays of your carbohydrate choices to promote nutritional balance.
Eat a hearty breakfast every day, balanced with protein, carbohydrate, and fat.

Take at least 2000 steps daily to start. Gradually increase it to 6000 steps. A pedometer can give you an incentive and encouragement to make it happen.
I is important. It's great to concentrate on helping others, but if you don't take care of yourself, you won't be able to do it as well.
Pace yourself with regular times for meals and snacks. Try not to eat any food within 2-3 hours of bedtime.
Stress reduction is a necessity for total wellness. The best tools are meditating, relaxing, pursuing hobbies that are personally gratifying and smelling the roses along the way.
