3 Top Habits of Vibrantly Healthy, Happy People

  1. Make Vibrant habits your highest priority and develop the mindset that makes the difference.   “Vibrant health means:  High energy,  relaxed focus, wellbeing, happy feelings, strong, flexible & cardio fit, enthusiastic, generous and alive.”    Planning a balanced diet that includes plenty of raw, fresh colourful fruits, vegetables & salads, lovingly prepared and savoured will boost massive reserves of energy throughout the day, so that you are able to enjoy your time well into the evening.  Apart from including more plant based enzyme rich foods, letting go of any ‘stress habit’ means starting your day off a little earlier with an exercise, meditation or mind focusing routine.   Just as you can train a dog with rewards – you can train your mind in much the same way by associating ‘massive pleasure’ to any new behaviour you want to create.   Tell your mind what you want, not what you don’t want:  “Vibrant health & energy is available to me today.”   WRITE IT DOWN – soak it in.    You can literally rewire your brain to give you what you want in as little as 21 days.   I reward myself with an energy packed breakfast that is simply delicious.    “My favourite treat breakfast includes cherries and sweet berries with a mouthwatering selection of my favourite passion fruits.     I include eating mindfully, savouring each juicy, blissful, naturally sweet mouthful.  With this one action, I am honouring my body, energy and life with immense gratitude.”
  2. Time is your most valuable resource.  Success requires a decision and commitment to taking action. Deciding what is most important for the day and getting it done first, becomes its own reward.   Breaking down bigger goals into smaller managable tasks can break through procrastination.  There are different ways of choosing what to do first.  One method is getting done what you dislike the most – FIRST.   This method releases valuable energy by getting it out of the way.  Success will often include less enjoyable aspects that need to be taken care of, such as a training, studying, presenting, accounting, auditioning, even exercising for some people is a drain…and if you re-train yourself to love your least favourite bits – even better.  You can then move through your day feeling fully focused without any nagging feeling that you should be doing something else.
  3. Whatever you give your attention to grows.  So AWARENESS & INTENTION really is KEY if you want to design your life.  If you genuinely desire vibrant health, happiness, energy and success.  One mindfulness technique I like to share, includes Breath in PEACE, breath out with a SMILE.  In peace…out smile.

I hope you enjoyed my top 3 tips for creating vibrant health, happiness and success with tons more energy.

10 Tips to a Healthier You

10 Tips to a Healthier You

1.  Find a new hobby that includes exercise.   Search for some form of exercise that you look forward to.  Experiment until you find a few things that you enjoy.  My personal favourites are:  Salsa dancing, Body Balance classes, Yoga, Body Pump, cycling, playing games with kids, a bit of skiing occasionally.

2. Choose foods that feel energising.   Before you choose something, stop, pause consider….  tune into your intuition….

Ask – Is this going to benefit me?”   Savour your meals slowly and deliberately.  Whatever you eat – make it count.  Practically every food has had something negative written about it!   You just can’t go there or it will drive you insane!   So don’t get hung up about how good or not it is!  If you decide it is good – it will be!

3. Easier still…Stop obsessing about food and find a new focus to absorb you.

4.  A helpful tip is to cut back on ‘mindless’ eating by choosing to only eat whilst sitting down in a relaxed setting.

5. Eating a little of what you fancy might work for you – it does for me.    However, long term exposure to eating ‘processed’ sugary or fatty foods are going to drain your energy.   Remember in Tip 2 – Think BEFORE you eat – “is this going to energise me?”  Little and often is preferable to huge meals that crash your energy.

6. Every time you give into a habit you are making it stronger. Ask the question:” is this food helping me to create positive habits?” If the answer is no – ask yourself, “do I really need this?”

7. Get creative. Move out of any ‘boring’ comfort zone’. Experiment with one brand new recipe each week, have fun with your food.  Include a little protein with each meal to stop your sugar levels, energy and moods crashing. I create 3 new recipes each week by receiving a box of salad ingredients with recipes from Abel & Co.

8. Stop eating when 3/4 full.  Get comfortable with leaving food on your plate.

9. As a guide, aim to eat 2-3 balanced meals with 2 smaller protein or fruit snacks. Make those meals more delicious by savouring each mouthful, deliberately and with complete mindfulness.

10. TV with adverts contain commercials that persuade you to eat junk and it is hypnotising you.  Advertisers know this, that is why they spend millions on adverts during peak viewing.  Instead spend the evening with something or someone you love – your family, pet, hobby, exercise, a good film (free from adverts) a new project, course or an uplifting book…with healthy happy feelings.  Take a look at my new book: 9 Simple Steps for Happiness, with quotes, quick tips and easy fun processes that help you to be a Healthier, Happier You!

Can Stress cause IBS?

Do you have IBS symptoms? Irritible Bowel Syndrome is a label used to describe bloating, stomach discomfort, constipation or diarrhoea.

Stress   IBS can be caused or aggravated by eating in a stressful frame of mind.  Enzymes are needed to digest your food and enzymes are blocked by the stress hormone cortisol.  Therefore stress leads to poor digestion, food intolerance, IBS and other imbalances.

Good feelings helps to create calm digestion.  Most people can think back to a ‘happy holiday’ with relaxed, calm feelings and remember that they were able to eat and drink all sorts of different foods that they would not have been able to at home.

If the gut has a memory so you can see how food intolerances, sensitivities, stomach bloating can be linked to stress.

Can you reset your gut memory? 

Definitely.

How to create a calm comfortable gut?

1.  Re-programme gut memory with happy, calm feelings

2.  Re-programme your beliefs that support happy, calm feelings

3.  Re-programme your ‘triggers’ and ‘behaviours’ so that you can relax and enjoy a healthy, balanced lifestyle that includes anything with good feelings.
