Drink warm lemon water

After a good night’s sleep kick off the day with a nice warm drink to jump start your system and start hydrating your body once again. By adding lemon to the hot water this will activate your digestive system.

Stay active – move around

Would you like to feel alive and full of energy? Start with a stretch and then go for a run/walk or simply embark on an enjoyable exercise routine. By doing some movement first thing in the morning you will feel more energetic, be less stressed and will thus clear your mind in preparation for the day ahead.

Think positively

By thinking positive and looking forward to the day’s activities you will pave the way. If you think of a positive statement or spend a couple of minutes in stillness you will lift your mood and put a smile on your face.

Create a To-do list

Create an actionable to do list for the week ahead and assign tasks for each day, with each task assigned to the day of the week you are most likely to perform it. Then put the day’s tasks according to the order of the day and level of importance, i.e. when during the day you will be carrying out the task. Consult your list every morning and evaluate the tasks’ importance.

Eat A Healthy Breakfast

Healthy-Breakfast

If you are hungry you will think and perform less well and you will also be less fun to be with. Besides breakfast is the most important meal of the day as it breaks the fasting of the night and starts your metabolism. So go ahead, start your day with a healthy breakfast.

Tips for a Glowing and Healthy Skin

A lot of money is being spent on purchasing cosmetics and products that promise to make you feel better. However, nutritionists keep on preaching that you are what you eat. Some experts in the field advise that to get glowing skin and a clear complexion you need to incorporate some great foods in your diet…

Salmon Dish

1. Oily Fish Like salmon or tuna
Eating fish provides your body with biotin, a B vitamin that produces fatty acids and metabolizes amino acids (the building blocks of protein). On the other hand a deficiency of biotin can cause scaly skin.

2. Chia seeds
Omega-3 fatty acids such as oily fish, chia seeds and walnuts help maintain cell membranes by protecting the skin and providing it with moisture.

3. Sweet potatoes
Filling your meals with colorful fruits and vegetables provides your body with lots of water, and thus keep your skin and other cells adequately hydrated. In fact a diet rich in vitamin A, like sweet potatoes, carrots, spinach has proven to enhance skin color and appearance by increasing its yellowness and redness.

4. Almonds
Almonds are rich in vitamin E and thus can also help you maintain healthy skin.

5. Sunflower seeds
These little seeds provide an excellent source of vitamin E and help protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals in the environment and in the body.

6. Complex carbohydrates
Processed foods such as pasta, white rice and also white flour can increase inflammation and cause acne flair-ups. In your daily diet replace pasta, white bread and white rice with complex carbohydrates such as barley, quinoa and brown rice. These food types are all lower on the glycemic index.

7. Orange juice
Although juices are often thought of as high in sugar content and with no main benefit to one’s health, orange juice provides fluids to keep you hydrated and Vitamin C, which works as an antioxidant to protect skin and other cells from damage caused by free radicals in the environment and in the body. Vitamin C also helps create collagen, the body’s main structural protein.

Eating some of these foods will help you look and feel better.
