5 Tips to a Joyous 2014

5 Tips to a Joyous 20142012_09_15_103

Joy McCarthy www.joyoushealth.ca

The beginning of a new year is a wonderful time for renewal and the perfect opportunity to establish some new habits for a joyous 2014. Here are my top habits that don’t require any dieting, deprivation or denying yourself of any goodness whatsoever! All of these habits will set you on a permanent path joyous health.

Cook your own food.

One of the first questions I ask when consulting a new client is “do you like to cook?” and if they say no, then my next question is “are you willing to cook if this is going to ensure you reach your goals” and the answer is always “yes”. I ask this question because it often determines success or failure. Most of us do not have the financial freedom to hire someone to do all the cooking for us, but we can carve out time in our schedule to make our own food.

Cooking your own food is a fantastic way to improve your eating habits. When you cook your own food you are more likely to make healthy choices because you have more awareness of what you are putting in your body. If you are concerned that “healthy” means flavourless, then you just need some yummy inspiration, which leads joyously well into my next point.

Try one new recipe per week.

A simple way to get some motivation in the kitchen is to try out a new way to cook your favorite veggies, or find a vegetable or spice in the supermarket you’ve never eaten before and look up recipes that appeal to you. This is a great way to increase your vegetable intake, and it’s a fun way to introduce new foods! Try a recipe from my book JOYOUS HEALTH: Eat and Live Well Without Dieting, the “Clean Beauty Smoothie” is the perfect start to your day.

Give 20 second hugs.

The average hug lasts a measly 3 seconds! Hugging promotes the release of the love hormone, oxytocin. This lovely hormone eases anxiety, lowers blood pressure and heart rate. It also bonds people. Hugging is a great way to feel more connected with your loved ones. To ensure you have release of this love hormone make your hugs last, at least 20 seconds. You’ll be glad you did!

Dry skin brush.

The perfect way to feel rejuvenated and invigorated is to dry skin brush every single morning before you shower or take a bath. Dry skin brushing stimulates your lymphatic system, which is a network of vessels that exchange nutrients and pick up waste products from your circulatory system. When you dry skin brush, you enhance the removal of toxic waste products as well because your skin is your largest organ of detoxification. Plus it makes your skin GLOW!

Listen to Music

Just as minerals are essential to brain health, so is music. In fact, scientists have found that listening to music releases dopamine, a neurotransmitter in the brain linked to pleasure.

Music is great for kids too. Listening to music regularly before the age of 7 has a significant effect on the development of the brain a study published in the Journal of Neuroscience suggested.

You know how you feel when a great tune comes on the radio – joyous! You can listen to music anywhere – in the car, at the office or at home. It’s also a great way to enhance your workout! I highly recommend a daily dose of the music mineral.
