Yoga and more yoga.
You don’t have to work for NASA to know the benefits of yoga. The breath work alone is enough to relax, restore and rebalance your system for an entire 24 hours after practice. Whether it’s Bikram, hot yoga, Hatha, Iyengar or Ashtanga, you're sure to be challanged and rewarded both mentally and physically!
Go for a brisk walk.
You heard me, grab Sparky’s leash and head out on a nice 20-minute walk! This is sure to get you feeling better from head to toe! Just 20 minutes is all you need to make your blues go away and to get your circulation and lymphatic systems pumping. So head for the hills and leave those sunglasses behind in order to stimulate your pituitary gland!
You’ve heard of getting eight hours of sleep, yes? How about nine? I prefer nine, as do many of my clients.
What? No time for nine hours of sleep you say? What about shutting off the TV and computer? I’m sure you can find room. If you're having trouble sleeping, be wary of melatonin, as studies have suggested that melatonin can awaken autoimmune disorders in some people. No one wants that!
Warm up some detox tea.
Ahhh ... chamomile, dandelion ginger tea is one of my personal favorite concoctions! Nothing soothes a nauseous tummy or relaxes me at the end of a long day like this does. Try your own creation and be sure and write down the formula that works best for you. You can even keep it in the fridge overnight to have the next evening.
Make a green juice.
