Detoxing daily is so important when keeping our immune systems in tip top shape. Everyday we are running into polluted areas in so many ways. It’s in the food we eat, the air we breathe, the products we use and being around other people in general. It’s important to instill daily rituals that help boost our immunity.
I have four daily habits that I do everyday , and the meaning of habit is, I have been doing these every day for the past year, that they have become a part of my life. I encourage you to find some rituals that help keep that immunity boosted.
– Drink warm lemon water every morning- I drink this every morning the minute I wake up. Warm lemon water flushes toxins, and rejuvenates the liver. It helps flush your digestive tract and gives your body so much hydration. Try to drink this in place of your coffee.
-Drink H20 all day long- yes I said all day long. It keeps your body hydrated and continually flushes toxins out of your body. It helps to keep you energized as your day goes by. I keep water with me all day and I infuse it with fruit.
– Meditate for 10 minutes every morning. I can’t be tell you how Much this has helped with my focus and overall well being. I’m the first one up , so this is how I start My mornings. I also read the devotion for the day out of my favorite devotional bible.
– Take a probiotic daily. Do you know that 70 % of our immunity lives in our gut? Take a probiotic and make sure you are eating gut healthy foods daily.
The smallest , healthiest changes can do a world of difference for your immune system.

We all know how important adding fitness in to our lives are. For me anyway, it helps me focus, makes my days better, and overall gives me more energy. If you are adding fitness into your daily schedules, kudos to you! As you know, getting some type of of physical fitness in every day will definitely help your body as it ages, but there are three tips that I live by, and I feel they are more important than exercise. These tips will add years to your life , and will definitely give you better quality.
Cook at home- cooking at home let’s you be in control of what goes in your mouth. Restaurants everywhere use so many types of fats and it really can add extra calories and wreak havoc on your waistline and your health. They use so many preservatives to give their food taste. If you are dining out, request to know exactly how your food is cooked. I always ask about my orders. It’s your only right. If you aren’t a huge cook, play around a bit with new recipes and find what you love. There is nothing like a good bottle of wine and cooking in your kitchen with a little French music playing.
Kill that stress away- who needs it right? We live once! Go out and do the things that kill that stress. Schedule a massage, go get your nails done, head out for a day of shopping with a friend. I think doesn’t necessarily have to be any of those. Simply grabbing a meditation or yoga class is divine. Stress management is important also as we age. Stress kills , and I’m talking long term. It puts stress on our minds , bodies, and spirits. Even turning the radio up full blast and dancing in your living room , being goofy is fun. My daughter and I do it all the time.
Find joy in everyday. JOY is happiness , plain and simple. If you are talking a walk in the park, or buying the car in front Of you a Starbucks, brings joy. Life is short, and joyous moments are what count. It’s the memories your making, and the times you will remember.
These tips to me are what make your bodies, minds and spirits stay balanced, and if they are all in balance, then we reach the stage of optimal health. Take the time everyday to be thankful , and count the blessings in your life. Slow down a bit and enjoy the little things.
