7 Simple Health Tips
1. Begin your day by drinking one glass of pure water (NOTHING ADDED)
This simple action stimulates movement in your intestines (peristalsis) and improves digestion overall. Your liver will thank you as well!
Room temperature water is best. Drinking refrigerated water lowers your core body temperature and stresses your body. This places greater demand on your body than is necessary. That extra energy could be used to strenghten your immune system for instance.
2. Take several breaths noticing where the air goes in your body
Place one hand on your chest and one on your belly while standing, sitting or laying down.
Breathe in filling your belly first then your chest.
Breathe out through your chest then empty your belly.
Repeat several times & throughout the day.
The richness of your life is represented by the depths of your breath and moments that take your breath away expanding your heart!
The depth of your breath promotes relaxation & oxygenation to your brain & organs.
Solutions to life's challenges may flow easily into a clear mind.
