A Recipe for Health

I have a bit of a checklist I tick off each day for my health.

R = Real Food – Aim for at least 80% of my daily diet to be unprocessed, ideally more. I’m a work in progress.  I try to think and eat outside the box!

E – Exercise daily – 30 minutes at least  I’ve got the cardio sorted but am falling short with my stretching. Might need to try something new ….maybe yoga!

S – Sleep well – 8-9 hours of sleep. I ideally need 9 to function well

U – UV/Vitamin D – 10-15 minutes of morning sunlight with as many body surfaces exposed to the sun as possible – usually arms, legs and face! if a bit of sun exposure is not possible I take a Vitamin D supplement.

L – Laughter – As often as possible!!! It’s the best medicine …apart from chocolate in my opinion

T – Time out – Aim for 30 minutes, usually to meditate, read or watch my guinea pigs eating non stop!

S – Stress Less – If I’ve had a bit of a stressful busy day I make a conscious effort to de-stress by taking a bath, meditating, listening to music or one of my favourites….. doing TRE – Trauma Release
