Holistic Health: A Mindful Approach to Healing

Health is a delicate balance of the mind, body, and soul. There are many factors that can contribute to our health – from what we eat and drink to how much we exercise. As holistic healers, it’s important for us to understand that each individual will have different needs when it comes to their healing process. Mindful practices are one way of taking care of ourselves on all levels – physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual. In this blog post, I’ll talk about some mindful practices you can use in your daily life as well as at home or work.

Get Plenty of Sleep 

If you’re like most people, getting the recommended 8 hours of sleep every night can be a challenge. Lack of sleep contributes to physical and mental health problems such as heart disease, diabetes, obesity, and depression. Not only that, but it also affects your mood negatively by causing irritability and fatigue.

Getting plenty of exercise is one easy way to ensure good quality sleep at night! Exercise helps regulate hormones related to energy balance which in turn keeps stress-free sleeping at night possible. Make sure you get 30 minutes or more every day for the best results!

Eat Healthy Food That Is In Season 

Eating healthy food is one of the most important aspects of a holistic lifestyle.  Eating organic, fresh vegetables and fruits that are in season in your area helps keep you balanced with what nature intended for us to eat! This not only benefits our individual health, but also supports sustainable agricultural practices which can save water, reduce waste, improve soil quality and help make sure all animals have enough nutritious food.

Rely On A Healthy Diet Full Of Fresh Produce

Eating well can be difficult when living in the modern world with busy schedules, but there are many ways to incorporate delicious vegetables into your meal plans. Eating plant-based meals helps prevent disease because they’re loaded with nutrients from fruits and vegetables, while refined carbohydrates have been proven to cause weight gain as well as heart disease.

Drink Plenty of Water 

Most people don’t drink enough water each day. For example, your body needs at least eight glasses of water every day for basic hydration – more if you’re exercising or living in a hot climate. Drinking plenty of water is important to keep your body healthy and functioning properly, but it’s easy to forget to drink the recommended amount each day.

Some apps and computer programs allow you to track your daily water consumption. They help you remember how much water you need to stay healthy by setting reminders on your phone and computer desktop. Some of them also track how much money you’ve saved by drinking less soda!

Exercise Regularly And Get Outdoors As Much As Possible 

Exercising regularly is an important part of holistic health. Regular exercise will improve your mood, increase energy levels, help you sleep better at night, and reduce stress. Activity also produces endorphins that make us feel happier! When we are feeling happy and optimistic, it’s easy to make healthier choices for our body, like eating nutritious foods or drinking more water.

Drink Lots Of Herbal Tea

Feeling stressed? Drinking too much coffee or soda can cause you to feel jittery, and it’s not good for your health. It is possible to reduce stress without sacrificing taste! There are many healthy alternatives that can help you relax and improve digestion.

We recommend drinking lots of herbal tea. Herbal teas have a lot of health benefits, including improved immune system function, reduced risk of heart disease, better skin health, decreased blood pressure, and increased mental clarity. 

Practice Mindfulness

It’s easy to take your health for granted and neglect the importance of self-care. Practicing mindfulness allows you to live in the moment with complete awareness, meaning that you are fully engaged in what is happening now without any judgments or distractions.

Practicing mindfulness doesn’t have to be difficult! In fact, it can be as simple as taking two mindful breaths before eating a meal, walking around the block after work instead of sitting at home watching TV, or slowing down while eating so that you’re aware of every bite (even chewing). Meditating regularly by setting aside 20 minutes each day for yourself can also help. All these things help keep us present and focused on our well-being rather than letting life pass us by.
