1. Get Deeper Sleep
Whenever you’re awake, your body is in a catabolic state which means it’s breaking down (you’re working and expending energy). On the flip side whenever you’re asleep, your body is in an anabolic state, which means, building up; in other words, your body is healing and repairing itself.
High quality sleep fortifies your immune system, balances your hormones, boosts your metabolism, increases physical energy and improves the function of your brain.
2. Drink Cleaner Water (and more of it)
Up to 60% of the adult human body is water, so the more you drink and the higher the quality of water it is, the better your body will perform.
Tap water is polluted with toxins that are harmful to our bodily systems, so it’s best to avoid this. Drink water that is purified or buy a bulk load of spring water the next time you’re at the store.
Aim towards drinking at least half your weight in ounces every day. If you want to spice it up, try alkalizing your water, adding organic fruit slices or drinking organic teas.
3. Remove Inflammatory Foods
At the heart of sickness is inflammation, so it’s important to eliminate foods that cause an inflammatory response. We’re all unique in the types of foods that cause inflammation, however there are some common foods that most people can’t tolerate. Food containing wheat/gluten, artificial sweeteners, colors and flavors, trans fats, dairy, added sugar and vegetable oils should all be avoided.
Try removing these foods completely for 6 weeks and you’ll notice a big difference in your energy levels, food cravings and overall health.
4. Boost Your Immune System
It takes a lot of energy to fight off sickness. If you take good care of your immune system, your body will defend itself against illness and have more energy for other areas of life.
We recommend taking Vitamin C which has ascorbic acid, which is the chief antioxidant (sickness fighting molecule) for your body. Pro Alpha Greens is an easy way to get 140mg of naturally occurring vitamin C everyday.
5. Alkalize Your Body
An Alkalized body is a healthy body. Sickness thrives in an acidic state, so eating a diet full of alkalizing foods will provide the necessary vitamins and nutrients to balance the body’s PH and promote overall health and energy.
Pro Alpha Greens is an easy way to get a wide array of alkalizing foods in your system, including: broccoli, kale, spinach, alfalfa grass, chlorella and parsley.
6. Commit to Daily Movement
Simple movement, breath work and increased heart rate promotes weight control, increased mood, better sleep, greater libido and warding off of sickness and disease. 10 minutes of movement a day will help oxygenate your cells and digestive organs, allowing the body to heal and rejuvenate.
7. Breathe Deep
By purposefully changing the way we breathe, we can change the way we feel and how our bodies react to what’s going on around us. When we’re stressed, anxious or upset our breathing changes. Instead of deep lung-filling breaths, we take shorter, shallow breaths. We use our shoulders to inhale and exhale, which can make anxious feelings even worse.
8. Eat Superfoods
The foods we eat determine the lives we live. Getting the optimal amount of nutrients required for peak energy can be challenging in today’s fast-paced lifestyle.
Taking superfoods during the day through a convenient shake or snack will replenish your body with high levels of energy-promoting vitamins, minerals and nutrients.
