There are plenty of things you can do every day to help achieve a higher level of holistic health, without having to turn your whole life upside down.
Here are some basic everyday activities for Holistic Health that you can start doing right away.
In the modern world, self-care has become at best something of an after-thought and at worse a completely neglected consideration.
Busy schedules, an astounding amount of time spent on social media and smartphones, the hustle, the bustle, it all takes time, and attention from what should be our first priority: self-care.
Stop and think for a moment, can you identify what your true needs are right at this moment?
Perhaps, you are so exhausted that you need a nap?
Maybe your body aches from tension and too much work and you could use a massage?
Were your last few meals eaten from a paper bag from some greasy take out that you wolfed down while rushing from one errand to another?
Are you really taking care of yourself, as you should?
Self-care and learning to listen to your body to identify what you really need and doing everything possible to fulfill those needs is the core of a holistic approach to good health and wellbeing.
Make yourself a priority!
Holistic health practitioners understand that many ailments and ill health in general can be traced back to stress.
In fact, a prolonged state of chronic stress is the root cause of many chronic medical conditions that afflict the body, and mental health disorders such as depression and anxiety that affect the mind and emotional health.
Taking care of your emotional wellbeing is considered of utmost importance in holistic medicine and the body is greatly affected by what goes on in the mind.
Mind-body practices such as yoga and meditation unite the mind, body, and spirit to promote overall wellness and a unique connection between physical and mental wellbeing.
These activities and others, like simply taking a walk in nature calm the mind, and detract it from the very hectic and overly stimulating modern world.
A calm mind, supports a healthy body, it’s really that simple.
Taking the time to relax, and deep breathing exercises further support wellbeing and help to decrease the impact that stress has on our health.
Everything we do in life affects our wellbeing and relationships are no small consideration. Do your relationships fulfill you, uplift you, and support you?
If not, help is available to identify the problems and resolve them so that familial, romantic, and platonic relationships support you to thrive.
Yes, you have heard it all before…
A healthy diet is necessary for good health.
Heart disease is the #1 killer of men and women and is mainly tied to lifestyle choices such as diet.
Junk food kills…etc. etc. etc.
But, there is so much more…
** Nutrients supplied by whole real food protect
and heal the body and the brain
** They allow the body to work at its best
** They give you unparalleled energy
** They provide antioxidants to protect the body from chronic diseases
Real food strengthens the body to better deal with stress
Nutrients in food strengthen immunity to fight off colds and flu
** The essential fatty acids you get from fatty fish, nuts and seeds promote healthy brain function, and vibrant and supple hair and skin
** Eating right supports focus, concentration, and memory power
All of these things and the many more benefits that solid nutrition offers you, ensure your overall wellbeing on a day-to-day basis, so you can thrive!
This is a very real benefit, that can be enjoyed in the here and the now without having to wait for the ‘in case” of heart disease.
A holistic approach to your health and wellness emphasizes the significance of the whole and the interdependence of its parts.
It involves a mindful recognition and respect of the fact that anything that affects one part of the body also affects the whole body.
A holistic approach to health means having respect for the consequences of our habits and actions.

I recently discovered this site and I can tell you that my life has not been the same. I now come here EVERYDAY and spend at least 1 hour.

habit with coming here.
