Oxygen is fundamental to your life and the lung is one of your major detox organs. Breathing in fresh air provides oxygen to your body. Breathing out expels the toxins from your body. Practice deep abdominal breathing in and out five times upon waking and before going to bed.
E: Eating well.
Cells of your body rejuvenate every day. Nourish those cells so that they become healthy tissues.
S: Sun and Stress management
Sunlight keeps your circadian rhythm regular and healthy. Healthy circadian rhythm induces quality sleep at night and wakes you up in the morning refreshed. Sunlight is also the most importance source of vitamin D. Twenty minutes of sunlight can provide you with more than enough daily dose of vitamin D. Research is discovering many benefits of vitamin D including ant-inflammation, cardiovascular protection, and mood stabilizing effects.
Stress management. Our body is regulated by Autonomic Nervous System, with two pillars: Sympathetic (fight-or-flight state) and Parasympathetic (relaxed state) nervous system. Stress shifts your body to Sympathetic nervous state. Long term Sympathetic NS state will lead you to various illness. Spend at least 20 minutes each day shifting your body to Parasympathetic NS. It can be achieved by relaxing through listening to music, reading poems, meditating, journaling, etc.
Movement promotes blood and lymphatic circulation. Circulation brings oxygen and nutrients to the cells of your body and ensures optimal immune functions. Movement also promotes your bowel movement (very important!). Try brisk walking for at least 30 minutes every day.
A: Aqua – Drink plenty of water.
75% of your body is water. Drink at least 64 oz of filtered water daily to hydrate your body’s cells for optimal functions.
Our body restores itself while sleeping. Research shows that our body produces growth hormones during sleep, especially between 10pm and 3am. Eight hours of good quality sleep during this time should be your priority.
