Natural Living, What Is It?

You’ve been reading posts on Facebook, seeing blogs about natural living. This celebrity is going vegan, this singer is only eating organic foods and so forth. What does that mean? Is it really that important to make the switch? These are all good questions but they cannot be answered that easily. The best thing to do is research information online and then speak with a doctor who can provide you the information you need to make an informed decision.

Read about other people’s experiences, what they liked, what they didn’t like, how it impacted them and what you should expect when making the switch. For example, when you start eating healthier do you notice an immediate change in how your body feels or does it take a few weeks? When you do finally feel changes, what are they?

To help you manage expectations you have to think about eating healthier food as an investment into your own health. However, just eating healthier isn’t going to be enough. You need to eliminate the toxins, carbs and sugars you constantly put into your body. You also need to replace diet soda and sugar free drinks with water and natural juices. Poor habits like watching television need to be replaced with taking walks, doing yoga and cleaning or gardening. Finally, sleep needs to be taken more seriously. You should average seven hours of sleep a night. This is how you fully embrace making a change and start to see real results.

You will get out what you put into this experience. However, making subtle changes is not a bad way to start either. Rather than trying to do something all at once, it’s not a terrible idea to start little by little. Replace a few sodas a day with water, take a walk before or after work, get to bed 30 minutes early and replace a normal side dish with a healthy salad. As you start to feel better you will want more and that’s when you start to see real results.
