Urbanization has been proliferating over time. Fewer places can give us the comforts of the countryside, such as the clean air, green views, and alluvial soil. Everywhere we look we can only find cars and concretes. And such a stressful condition can make our body turn ill.
The ideal health condition achieves not only the healthy appearance on the outside but also healthy organs and metabolism on the inside. Those with a pallid and haggard look are most likely to have a high intensity of toxic buildup in their body. And to reverse that condition is the topic of today’s discussion.
Clearing the Mind
The mind is where all the things have started. You cannot have healthy habits without discipline and proper awareness of how important health is. A stressed mind can also exhaust the body.
The solution to that condition is to make yourself accustomed to meditation. If you do not like to get trapped with New Age things, you do not need to feed yourself with spirituality and the likes. Just do the breathing exercise to clear your mind. In fact, all kinds of meditation give their soothing and relaxing effect because of their focus on the controlled breathing technique.
Breathing alone can depose most of the toxic in the body. But the problem is that we rarely pay attention to the way we breathe. Chest breathing is inefficient, and diaphragm breathing should be preferred because it allows the lungs to absorb more oxygen than chest breathing.
Visualizing your goals and the flow of the air can also improve both your mind and body. We must always remind our brains of what we are trying to achieve in life. By doing it, we condition ourselves to be ready for the struggles.
Eating the Right Way
Eating organic food is cliche advice. And it has also turned out to be a marketing strategy designed by businesspeople to make you pay more for the food you can get with half of the price.
However, it is true that some food sources are heavily contaminated with pesticides.
You need to make sure that what you eat is nor from those sources. And if you cook for yourself, you must wash the raw ingredients thoroughly.
Fruits and veggies are the two vital food that can cleanse the toxic out of your body. They are high in fibers, which can keep your digestive tract in its prime condition. Fibers help you to excrete all the waste in your body and thrive the good guts bacteria in the colon. Fruits and veggies also have the necessary nutrients that can help your liver and kidneys do the job of detoxification. Tomatoes have flavonoid, a nutrient that encourages cells growth in the liver. Cabbages are high in free-radicals fighting chemicals. Adding them to your diet can undoubtedly improve your health.
Avoiding Sedentary Habit
Most city inhabitants are dying of sitting sickness. Most of them are office workers, and their job requires them to sit for at least six hours every day.
Although sitting does not sound tiring at all, what happens is that we are most likely to get exhausted from the habit. It is not the same exhaustion from exercising, but it is the ill feeling caused by the slowing metabolism and poor blood circulation.
In many cases, sleeping afterward will not fix the problem, unlike what happens with workout exhaustion.
To overcome the problem, you can take a break in every 30 minutes of sitting and do a movement. Rising the arms have been shown to improve blood and hormone circulation. If possible, you can also walk or stand up for a while during the break.
Once you get home, allocate your time to take a walk. Our body has evolved to move. And 10,000 footsteps are the ideal to make every day. Otherwise, you will be prone to heart disease, bone deformation, and muscles degradation.
