MY HEALTHY LIFESTYLE TIPS

1. Eat wholesomely - according to your needs and constitution:
- Sit down to dine and savor your food
- Have as many meatless and low-carb meals as possible (I indulge on meat, bread, pasta, rice, cakes, desserts, cheese, peanut butter, etc... only once or twice a week, mostly on weekends)
- Serve vegetables at every meal
- Integrate sufficient healthy proteins and cereals into your diet (seeds, eggs, dairy products, poultry, fish, tofu, farro, barley, oats, buckwheat, etc...)
- Regularly cook with legumes and grains (a few times a week)
- Eat a handful of nuts and fruits on a daily basis
- Flavor your dishes with lots of spices and herbs as well as natural condiments (vinegar, mustard, hot sauce, etc...)
- Use good oils and fats in reasonable quantities (that also includes animal fats)
- Drink lots of plain water (the amount varies from one person to another, depending on one's lifestyle and body's demand)
- Cut down on sugar and floury foods
- Steer clear of additives, MSG, glucose, trans fats, GMO's and processed food
2. Exercise often
3. Sleep enough
4. Get some fresh air and get close to nature
5. Relax more and ban stress from your life
6. Seek harmony and peace of mind, think positively, be optimistic and surround yourself with non-toxic people
7. Find inspiration in others, be passionate and creative
8. Express your emotions - don't swallow your feelings
9. Be one with the Universe
10. Stop trying to be someone else and learn to love yourself by accepting who you are and acknowledging your uniqueness
11. Enjoy life & don't take it all too seriously
12. Fake it till you make it!

  25. Enjoyed reading through your list.. So holistic and healthy. My fav is no. 6!

  26. Excellent advice.... all of it. I taught my husband to express his emotions and I can tell you it does enormous good to the body. Relax... seek harmony and peace of mind... definitely important. Not caring what others think is the most difficult but worth the effort. Thanks for reminding us all of what should be so obvious.

  27. Great tips Rosa! I love the last one.. ;)

  28. Beautiful pear, Rosa!
    That's a tall list and while the advice is great, it's hard to follow entirely. I do swallow my feelings a lot, have learned to do so as I've aged. And I rarely think in terms of becoming one with the universe. I think the correct road to follow is moderation in everything.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Nice tips, Rose...mostly already following. No. 12 - love it! Thanks :) ela

  34. "Fake it till you make it." :)

    Rosa, I follow 'almost' all these health tips. However, I don't know if I'll ever internalize #8. Maybe I just need more sleep.

    ReplyDelete

  45. This "less is more" philosophy is exactly what I'm trying to do a bit more each day…I say "trying", because I still have a lot of bad habits. So, thank you Rosa for reminding me all these important points ! Have a beautiful sunday ! PS : I finally found these famous dried green beans (in Manor, in Geneva) ;-)
