I’m going to keep this simple:
1. Get a good quality air purifier:
My top two favorites are an Air Doctor or a Medify. I like the MA-25 for bedrooms and the MA-40 for open living spaces. If you can only afford one to start, move it around the house with you. The Air Doctor is pricey, and the filters are expensive, HOWEVER, it is a smart unit that knows when to up the fan speed. It’s super user friendly as all you need to do is turn it on auto and leave it. Both of these brands have impressive Clean Air Delivery Rates.
2. Drink clean water:
I trust the Berkey brand. We have the Crown unit for our big family. There are other brands and pitcher style filters out there, do your research to see what works best for you. Oh, and if you aren’t sure if this is a neccesary step for you, do some research about what is in tap water, or the harmful effects of drinking bottled water. Netflix has some documentaries that touch on this topic.
3. Move more:
It doesn’t have to be a gym membership or fancy workout equipment. Just make a goal to move a little more. It may look like lifting soup cans for 10 reps 2x/day, doing a flight of stairs in your home for 5 minutes 3x/week, that kind of thing. If you want to keep tabs on your steps, a Fitbit is a good starting place, but not necessary.
4. Make healthy dietary choices: Not everyone is ready to dive in here, and I respect that, but trust me when I say that if you can make an attempt to eat less gluten, dairy, and sugar I think you will be better off than if you hadn’t given it a second thought.
5. See a Chiropractor: Just once this year, do yourself a favor and see a chiropractor. A quick Google search will tell you the benefits of chiropractic care on your immune system, and overall health.
Above all, GET IN THE WORD. Read your Bible. Download the YouVersion Bible app and set up the notifications that send you the daily verse. Praying and growing in faith is so important to me, and I hope it is something that you hold dear to you as well.
