I’m into Healthy Living. I limit my sugar intake, I eat salad with every meal (have done for the last fifteen years!) and I don’t smoke or drink ever. I’ve learned to deal with ‘peer pressure’ and can easily say, ‘No thanks’ when someone insists I have a drink. We’ve even been celebrating our online successes with sparkling apple juice! 🙂
Another part of our healthy living is being personally responsible for our health and wellness or lack of it at any point. I don’t take medication except in last resort circumstances. What I mean by that is the last time I took any pain killers was over a year ago, when a trapped cervical nerve brought me to my knees in agonizing pain, and even then I took just three. I like to know if what I’m doing is improving my health, and not just hiding the destruction with pain killers. That meant that my route back to health after a lumbar pain was defined by my exacting attitude to my posture and activity. No pain killers meant I knew exactly what was better or worse for my body at every waking second, and still do today.
Why? Because I have determined to live a long and prosperous life that requires good health to be able to enjoy it. I didn’t take proper care of my body or do any sports, and if I knew then what I know now, I’d have made the effort. Rebuilding after 40 is a much slower route…. Vitamins, essential oils and good food are our way of life. And orange oil is the best air purifier I know! Never use a perfumed spray ever. The quality of the air we breathe is important to me.
Healthy eating and natural remedies are the order of the day in our household, and I’ve even included a webstore on my blog to help people get the supplements they need. Example: My sure-fire cold prevention is Vitamin C daily (I take 1000mg), propolis, and colloidal copper one a week. Check out your own lifestyle for healthy habits and maybe make a change? You’ll thank yourself later! 🙂
