Here are five things I do everything to keep my mind, body and soul feeling good.
- I start my day with a solid breakfast. This can mean something different to everyone but for me it means I eat things that I feel good about. My head might think about eating something naughty, my body wants differently. If I eat a good proper breakfast I am motivated to make better choices throughout my entire day. I choose to begin my day with veggies and then build around whatever I have in the fridge. Most often I make veggies with a gluten free grain which has been soaked overnight and cooked in bone broth,. Other days I have veggies with eggs, veggies in soup, or just plain steamed veggies with raw Greek olive oil, lemon and sea salt. Whatever it is, love it all. What you eat and I eat might entirely different. The point is to make your first meal count.
- I use a Netti Pot and flush my nose with a sea salt saline rinse everyday. Living in Hong Kong, the pollution can wreak havoc on my sinuses. Using my Netti Pot has saved me from ENT appointments and unneeded antibiotics. I bought my Netti Pot on Iherb, but they are pretty easy to find. Throw in some warm water and sea salt and you are good to go.
- I connect. This changes day to day but the point is I do it everyday. Today connecting was both meditation and yoga. Yesterday it was earthing.
- I scrape my tongue right when I get up. This removes yucky bacteria and toxic residue from my system, improves the taste of food on my palate, and cleanses the internal organs , as the tongue is energetically connected with the whole body system. Tongue scrapers are inexpensive and fun to use. You can also throw in a coconut oil rinse and can “pull” additional toxins from your system.
- I learn something new, and most often it is about my passion. This constantly challenges my brain and keeps me on my toes. Mozart, Einstein, and Michelangelo all became masters of their crafts by putting in the time everyday to learn about what they loved. I recommend reading Bounce, by Author Syed, which explains that it is time, not talent, that paves the way to success.
