Natural Ways To Beat The Winter Blues

Let's start the month with some healthy stuff ladies! Spring is in the air and everyone is welcoming the new regenerating season with open arms. We need to get out of our Winter mood and get ready for the warmer weather. Altough it's still kinda cold in most parts of the world, it's never to early to start prepping your body and get energized! Our energy levels are low at the moment from a couple of months of cold and lack of sunlight. Still stuck in your Winter Blues? Avoid coffee and energizing "miracle" drinks and incorporate these little things into your everyday life from now on and you'll naturally keep your energy level at its highest. You'd also like my most recent post: 10 All Natural Instant Energy Boosters, for an instant energy booster!

Spring is just around the corner, so excited!!! Are you??

Stretch

When you wake up in the morning, take a few minutes to let your mind and body adjust to being awake before you get out of bed. While breathing deeply, consciously stretch every muscle in your body, starting with your toes and working your way up until you reach the muscles in your face. I do it every single morning of my life and it really helps to energize!

Eat Breakfast

Many people don't eat breakfast because mornings are rushed, but oh my, it is the most important thing to start your day with! After fasting for multiple hours while we sleep, our bodies need plenty of nutrients in order to operate at their maximum potential. Just wake up a little earlier to make yourself a healthy breakfast. I start every day with two pieces of fruit and some line seeds or a heavy veggie fruit smoothy, all biological of course! Remember, a breakfast with loads of suger is not healthy. Normal cereals for example, most often seem "healthy", but the majority contain ridiculous amounts of sugar, wrong fat and E-numbers, which are poisonous to your body. Packages are very misleading, read the ingredients!

Drink Water

Water is crucial for proper functioning of every system in our bodies, which are naturally made of up to 60% water! Dehydration is a big contributor to feeling fatigued, so make sure you’re getting enough water every single day. Start your day with one glass of water. During the night you loose a lot of water, you're basically dehydrated when you wake up. Drink at least 2 litres of water a day. I drink at least one litre of filtered water and one litre of organic herbal tea (green preferably) a day.

Get Sun

Mentioning this in almost every single health energizing post, get as much sun as you can. At least 15 minutes a day or as much as the sun peeks. It might not be as sunny as you want yet where your live. But take advantage of it if there is sun! You can read in one of my previous posts about the reasons why, oh boy, it has some benefits you probably never heard of :P: 10 Reasons Why Sun Is Good For Our Health

Tap Your Thymus

The thymus is an organ in your immune system that is located at the center of your chest, below your collar bone. Tapping this area triggers the production of T-cells, increases energy, relieves stress, boots your immune system, and more. To do so, place your fingers in the center of your sternum and tap or thump for 15 to 20 seconds while breathing in through your nose and out through your mouth. You will likely feel an immediate sense of calm after tapping your thymus, and doing so regularly can lead to a long-term increase in your immune system and energy level overall!

  4. Bedankt voor de goede tips! Je posts inspireren me toch echt altijd om gezonder te leven! Vroeger at ik nooit ontbijt, of hoogstens een yoghurtje, maar hier in Engeland eet ik elke ochtend flink een kom havermoutpap, good progress :D

    Bedankt voor je lieve comment op m'n blog <3 Altijd fijn om te lezen! En ja cheap leggings zijn echt vreselijk, dat doen zo'n pijn om te zien haha ;) Zolang ze niet see through zijn allemaal dik oké!
