Ten Instant Health Boosters

1.  Spend 15-30 minutes a day thinking about a dear loved one.  The process of building love relationships helps the brain to create new neural pathways.

2.  Declutter your home.  When things are out of place and disarray, you can feel overwhelmed and tired.  Find places for those items that always  seem to be in the way.  It’s shoes at my house that never seem to get put up.

3.  Get your 8-10 glasses of quality water a day.  If you are thirsty, your body is already taking vital fluids from your organs.  Try to drink at least one glass first thing in the morning and space out the rest  through the day.

4. Speaking of water, there is a product called Willard Water that actually changes the molecular structure of H2O making it a powerful antioxidant.  The following benefits have been noted.  For ordering information visit  http://www.willardswater.com/info.

  • Increased absorption of nutrients
  • Increased elimination of toxins and wastes
  • Acting as an extraordinary scavenger of free radicals & antioxidant
  • Reducing swelling
  • Raising alkalinity
  • Helpful with skin conditions

5.  Get a foot rub.  Stimulating the reflex points located on your feet can boost your body’s immune system.  I recommend learning about the health benefits of Reflexology.  One of my favorite books on the subject is Body Reflexology: Healing at Your Fingertips.  The author, Mildred Carter, is one of the leading experts on total body health through Reflexology.  I first learned of her work when I was a child.  My grandmother was a die-hard believer in the body’s ability to heal itself.  She would give my brother and me foot treatments regularly.  At the time, I didn’t care so much about the health aspects of the foot rubs, I just thought they felt wonderful!  For those of you who need pictures and love to learn about history, pick up a copy of  The Complete Illustrated Guide to Reflexology- Therapeutic Foot Massage for Health and Wellbeing

6.  Run up and down the stairs a few times.  Just several 30-second bursts of cardio can be as effective as up to an hour of training at a lower intensity.

7.  Resolve any issues you have with friends, family, or co-workers.  Harboring grudges and ill-feelings can be more harmful to your health than you think.  Angry people are far more likely to suffer from high blood pressure, heart disease, depression, diabetes, and numerous other life-stealing conditions.

8.  Disinfect your cell phones, remote controls, computer keyboards, and game controllers.  As many as 283 species of bacteria can live on these commonly used items, including streptococcus, the main cause of strep throat, and Staphylococcus aureus, which can lead to MRSA, an antibiotic-resistant staph infection according to a recent report.

9.  Get a pet.  According to research, pets can decrease your blood pressure, cholesterol levels, triglyceride levels, and feelings of loneliness.  They can also increase your opportunities for exercise and outdoor activity.

10.  Get your bowels moving.  Good health starts in your core where your digestive and immune systems reside.  If your digestive tract is backed up your body can’t eliminate toxins and waste products efficiently.  Women ages 19-50 should get around 25 grams of fiber a day.  If you are not able to get that from the foods you eat, supplementation may be a good alternative.  As well as fiber, we need probiotics to ensure the bacterial balance in our digestive tract.  You can find these important “friendly bacteria” in yogurt, products like Culturelle, and the trendy newcomers like Activia and Kashi Vive.

About Kellie R. Stone

"I make no excuses for my diverse roles as a Rock Your Feminine Type Coach™ and Branding Expert, best-selling author, and crime thriller novelist. Yes, I do still chuckle a bit at the irony. I kick ass as a women’s biz coach by day and kill off vulnerable fiction characters at night. What the hell, it makes for some interesting dreams. I believe that everyone should pursue their passions no matter how out there they seem to be. One of those pure heart-fluttering passions for me has always been writing. Since I did, indeed, chase my dream of being a writer, I've published two non-fiction books in the self-development genre, co-authored an international best seller, and now I'm finally pushing my much-too-old-to-be-in-the-nest novel out the door and into the world. My whole world is empowering and I adore showing others how to live life unfiltered, whether I do that through the written word or my coaching work. I love my job!" ~Kellie R. Stone
