5 Tips for Living Inclusively

Tip 1: Increase your emotional well-being

Reduce your isolation, join a group, participate in a physical activity, smile often and laugh freely. There’s no better way to improve your sense of connection than meeting new people and spending time with those you love. Your happiness will be reflected in your health and appearance.

Tip 2: Reflect on the positive

Studies have shown that optimistic people live longer and more fulfilling lives. Even when you feel down, focusing on one positive thing can instantly improve your mood. Each night before you go to bed, write down three good things that happened to you that day. This is my #1 recommendation to improve your emotional outlook.

Tip 3: Pamper yourself

Your health and appearance are positively influenced by increasing your emotional and mental well-being. Whether it’s for a facial, massage or even a pedicure, a visit to the spa is a fool-proof way to promote stress relief and relaxation. Book an appointment at your local spa. It’s just what the Doctor ordered.


Tip 4: Optimize your sleep

Use topical and internal products with ingredients such as melatonin and GABA that add depth to your sleep and your skin’s sleep repair cycle. Getting the right amount of sleep helps ensure that you are alert and focused. Try to get a minimum of eight hours a night.

Tip 5: Get regular exercise

Exercise improves digestion, metabolism and endocrine function so that your entire body is functioning at an optimal level. Yoga and hiking are great ways to exercise your body and to calm your mind and spirit. But, most importantly, you should find an exercise you love so you will stick with it. Try to exercise a minimum of 30 minutes every day.

    It’s all about the enzymes! My klissioiognet told me about this, as many of her clients have lost weight simply by adding lots of raw fruit and raw veggies to their meals. I usually make up a raw green smoothie, just some salad greens, maybe cuke and celery too, and some fruit, and drink my salad! Its really good after you eat protein or carbs or whatever else, cause it helps the body to digest and enzymate up the food you’ve just eaten.
