Skin Brushing –Your skin is your largest eliminative organ. Gentle brushing removes dead skin cells, opens up your skin pores and aids in elimination of toxins. Use a soft brush on your face and body regularly for glowing youthful skin.

Drinking Herbal Teas – Herbs are nature’s medicines. Herbal teas can be calming, stimulating, immunity building, mentally clarifying, provide digestive soothing and many other benefits. Research your herbs tea for purity and sources, and consult with professionals for best results.
Getting Plenty of Sleep – Whole books have been written on the subject of sleep and its importance to overall mental and physical health. Get at least 5-6 hours of deep sleep nightly and more when you need it.
Exercising – Your body need a good 30 minutes a day of cardio-vascular exercise along with a good 15 minutes of intense toning to help you stay fit and control your weight.Even if it’s just a brisk walk or just going up and down the stairs, get some good exercise each and every day!
Stretching – Any time you stretch you are increasing circulation and improving bodily functions. Stretch in the morning, before and after exercising, anytime you feel tense or stiff; make stretching part of your daily routine.
Taking Deep Breaths – It’s important that you take deep breaths often to increase circulation, strengthen and clear your lungs, and reduce stress. Taking deep breaths requires no equipment, location or shopping and is the easiest and most inexpensive thing you can do to quickly improve your overall heath and emotional well-being.
Power Napping – Power naps are short rejuvenating naps that are recommended during the workday. They can last anywhere from 1 to 10 minutes. Simply close your eyes, tune out the world, and let your body completely relax during this time.
Thinking Positive – Studies have shown that negative thoughts can adversely affect your mental well-being and even make you physically ill. Each time you feel a negative thought creeping into your head, replace it with a positive thought immediately. This helps promote good actions, a good attitude, and good health.
Avoiding Overexposure to the Sun – Overexposure to the Sun has been linked with pre-mature aging, heat exhaustion, dehydration, headaches, and certain forms of skin cancer. Limit your time in direct sunlight to just enough to get a good dose of vitamin D, and try to avoid the sun altogether during peak hours.
Spontaneous Fasting – Occasionally skip a meal and drink lots of pure filtered water instead. This gives your digestive system a break and helps rid the body of toxins. Once your break is over, return to eating with a light healthy meal.
Not Eating Before Bedtime – Try not to eat at least 3 hours before bedtime. This habit reduces stress on your organs, induces restful sleep, and helps you feel more energetic and vibrant in the morning.
Taking at least one day off a week from technical equipment and getting out into nature – Give your mind and body a break from gadgets and get out into natural light and surroundings at least one day a week even it’s just a partial day. Recent studies have shown that an hour of television can decrease your lifespan by as much as 22 minutes. While this hasn’t been fully verified, it makes sense that keeping technology in its place and increasing time in natural surroundings helps you develop a healthier balance.
