Simple lifestyle changes can make a world of
difference. Small, sustained changes can result

these new changes, be gentle on yourself, take
baby-steps by choosing a habit you can do most
easily. As you succeed, try more challenging
ones. Honor your efforts and remember your
dedication will serve you for life!
1. Eat a Natural Foods Diet
diet high in vegetables, whole grains, beans,
fruits, fresh nuts and seeds is the goal. Fish
grown in their natural habitat, are also
nutritious and can be a good source of essential
fatty acids. Free-range, low-fat animal sources
can also be enjoyed on occasion. Remember to eat
in moderation, chewing your food thoroughly to
maximize digestion and achieve natural
2. Adopt a Daily Exercise Routine
Try to find at least 20-30 minutes a day for a
physical activity. For many itís best to find a
routine that raises your heart and respiration
rate thus improving circulation. For others it
may be necessary to find something low-impact.
Whatever the case, find something you enjoy
doing either by yourself or with others. If itís
fun, youíre likely to continue for life.
3. Get Sufficient Rest

proverb. Itís important to get 8 hours of
uninterrupted sleep, in complete darkness, every

4. Fill Your Heart with Joy and Love
Engage in activities that develop a calm mind
and compassionate heart. Surrender the past and
the future, but enjoy the present. Sharing your
love is profoundly therapeutic. Laugh frequently
and heartily. Good belly laughs every day can
directly improve your well-being.
5. Drink Pure, Clean Water
to eight glasses of spring or filtered water
throughout the day keeps your cells hydrated and
enables your cells to flush out any impurities.
Too much water taken with meals can interfere
with digestion. All the more reason to take a
water-break during your work day!
6. Breathe in the Fresh Air and Sunlight
Get fresh air everyday and remember deep breaths
taken in from the belly renew the body, mind and
spirit. For most people, exposure to moderate
amounts of natural sunlight is very beneficial.
In the summer, choose morning and late afternoon
sun to minimize UV ray exposure. Light waves
passing thorough the optic nerve help regulate
hormone production, so, if possible, remove your
glasses when in the sun.
7. Connect to a Spiritual Source
Believing in God that is wiser, more
compassionate and powerful than yourself, is
very comforting and can enhance your sense of
inner peace not merely on emotional or feeling
level but in reality as He is there in reality
so is the real help from Him. Prayer and
meditation are indispensable both in times of
difficulty and to show gratitude for all that
you have been given.
