Living a healthy, happy life is all about finding the right balance. We all know how important a well-balanced diet is to keep our body clean, lean, and disease-free. But that’s not the only key to a happy, healthy life.
Here’s how to find nutritional, physical, and mental balance to feel happy and healthy.
1. Keep Active
Regular exercise is very important to maintain overall health, but don’t overdo it. For most people, around 30 minutes a day (or 3 longer sessions throughout the week) will do the trick. Your body needs its rest as well, so trying to squeeze a daily 60-90 minute workout into your already busy day may have an adverse effect.
And it’s not only important to keep your body active, your brain needs daily challenges as well. Reading, doing a puzzle or playing a game are great ways to keep your brain active and improve memory.
2. Drink Plenty of Water
Our body is one big bag of water. To make sure it keeps running smooth and unwanted chemicals or substances get filtered out it is important to drink plenty of water during the day. However, avoid to get it from fizzy drinks, energy drinks or other sugary juices or drinks, they add tons of added sugars and empty calories to your diet.
3. Avoid Processed Foods and Read Food Labels
Be aware of what you put in your mouth. Processed foods are often enriched with unhealthy fats, salt, and sugar to improve their taste. Mainly, eat nutritious, whole, plant-based foods packed with vitamins, minerals, protein, fiber and healthy fats. And if buying something processed make sure to read the labels and opt for the most natural and organic products.
A great way to help you cut out unhealthy foods is to up your intake of fresh nutrient-dense foods such as nuts, seeds, fruits and veggies. Eventually all the good stuff will rule out the bad.
Cook wholesome meals at home from scratch. Only then you have complete control of what goes in them.
4. Do Not Exclude Food Groups Unless…
Unless you are allergic, intolerant, vegetarian, or vegan, there is no need to exclude certain food groups from your diet. It’s all about finding balance and eat certain foods like dairy, grains, and lean meats in moderation.
5. Eat a Rainbow of Colors
Fill your plate with fresh whole foods with the colors of a rainbow. Different colors provide different types of antioxidants and other beneficial nutrients your body needs to stay healthy and happy.
6. Do Not Skip Meals
Your body needs wholesome food on regular times to stay energized and build and repair cells and tissue. And if you thought skipping meals will help you to lose weight, you couldn’t be more off the truth. Your body needs food to keep your fat-burning mechanisms going. It’s all about what you put in your mouth, not how much.
7. Make Healthy Swaps
Be creative. You can still eat delicious food without the addition of mayonnaise, salt, sugar, refined grains or other unhealthy stuff.
Here are a few of my favorite swaps:
- Mayonnaise -> mashed avocado with lime and black pepper or mango mayonnaise
- Cereals -> rolled or steel-cut oats, homemade granola, or quinoa
- Jam -> raw chia seed jams
- Overly processed grains -> brown rice, quinoa, buckwheat, or amaranth
- Sugar -> pitted dates, banana, or cinnamon
- Potato chips -> kale or other veggie chips
- Potato mash -> cauliflower mash
- Sour cream -> cashew cream
- Soda -> infused waters or homemade fizzy ginger ale
- Vegetable oil -> coconut oil
… and they actually taste better.
8. Stay Social
So we covered a lot of nutrition tips to stay on top of your health, but mind and body are strongly connected. Social interactions have shown tremendous effects on our health and happiness. So once in a while venture into the world and meet up with friends and family for drink or great night out.
And smile as often as you can!!!
During our sleep or body regenerates and heals, so make sure to get your daily beauty sleep. Aim for 8 hours of sleep a day. Some people will need a bit more others will do just fine with 7 hours only.

10. Stress Less and Relax
But not only is enough zzz-time important for our health, finding the time to unwind and relax is equally important. Create some daily YOU-time where you take time to lay down the stresses of the day. Restorative or yin yoga, reading a book, going for a walk with your dog, watching a movie, take a long bath, spending time with family…. Your options are endless, but make sure it is something you enjoy doing.
A healthy and happy life is all about finding the perfect nutritional, mental, and physical balance. You still can have your cheat days and devour a big piece of chocolate cake or skip your workout regime, but treasure those moments and don’t make them a daily habit.

Do You Know Your Body’s Most Important Weight Loss Secret?
By J. Davis III
Tags: HEALING | HEALTHY FATS | REMEDIES
Recently, Doctor of Naturopathy, weight-loss expert and best-selling Amazon author Liz Swann Miller, creator of the Red Smoothie Detox Factor, revealed 2 of the secrets to easy, steady weight loss. Secrets the big food corporations do their best to hide from us.
Secret #1: Enjoy real food. Don’t fall for the lie that you have to deprive yourself to lose weight.
Secret #2: stop eating out. You will automatically eat less without even noticing.
Then start detoxing your body with tasty, nourishing smoothies that are just as easy on your wallet as they are easy to make.

Now prepare yourself for one of the biggest weight loss secrets there is. A secret that, when you use it properly, can transform your body and your health.
You probably know most of us eat too much processed food. What you may not know is that it’s full of toxic chemicals and substandard, dirt-cheap ingredients designed to make you eat more…and force you to gain weight.
Here’s how it works...
“That stuff is just a lot of calories your body can’t use,” Liz told me, “Some are poison. And all these foods are stripped of the anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that help your body detox. The result? Your body expends huge amounts of calories to eliminate some toxins—the rest, it stores in your fat to protect you. This is why most people are hungry all the time. They’re not getting energy they need.”
“So… what’s going on with me? Why am I losing weight but not going hungry?”
Liz paused, then dropped the bombshell.
Your body is designed to burn fat. You just have to let it.
“What? I thought we were designed to store fat?!?” We were Skyping and I was practically shouting. Then I heard Liz say…
What good is a fat reserve if you can’t burn it?
Liz continued: “You’re drinking smoothies packed with phytonutrients, anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that pull toxins out of you like a tractor beam. Allowing your body to burn those toxin-filled fat stores… and releasing tremendous amounts of stored energy.”
So that’s why I’m losing weight without going hungry.
