Holistic Lifestyle

Sometimes living that wonderful and beneficial holistic life can sometimes seem daunting. However! The moment you resign yourself to it, you wonder why you were even thinking about the sometimes nuisance it causes. These weak moments are normal experiences and very healthy to have. Periodic evaluation is a good thing, trust me. To help do justice to that statement, I've compiled a few soul treats to make my case.

Hang Up That Hangover

Lets start with hanging out with the boys or for many of you, girlfriends. A sip, sip here, a sip, sip there and soon many of you become looser than a shoe lace. You get your ride home (a good thing) and soon you're off to dreaming things better left unsaid. The problem is when you wake up the next morning and find yourself with a severe hangover. That's right, don't play coy with me, you know who you are. The experience is enough to make you think twice about drinking again, but only think about it. Don't you wish you didn't have hangovers? Allow me to draw the curtains and allow the sunshine in. Your solution, prickly pear extract, a supplement used for centuries to dull the aftereffects of alcohol. Just take this little wonder with you and consume it before you start drinking.

Cosmetic Ingredients To Avoid

For most women, looking good far out weights the negatives, but consider this, many conventional cosmetics contain ingredients that can potentially kill you. There are roughly 200 synthetic chemicals in many of the world's cosmetic products. However, lets concentrate on three that some experts proclaim are the most dangerous. Coal tar colors, have been linked to cancer and can be found in makeup and many bodycare products. They're labeled as FD&C or D&C colors. Up next is formaldehyde, also linked to cancer but can cause respiratory irritation. This baby can be found in nail polishes, shampoos and other bodycare products. In addition, many of it's preservatives, such as DMDM hydantoin and quaternarium 15, can dissolve into formaldehyde. Finally we come to dibutyl phthalate, this bad boy has been found to cause birth defects in animals and is located in perfumes and other bodycare products.

I can see the look on your faces now with all that bad news, but wait, there's hope. Try researching some of the natural none toxic beauty products out there. They could mean the difference in preventing potential diseases festering inside you.

Walking Away

Walking is probably the oldest form of good exercise in the arena of keeping fit. Armed with a good pedometer latched on to your belt, you can take control and accurately monitor if you're getting enough of this light hearted and fun way of keeping fit. The more you move, the more you'll experience an increased energy level. Walking uplifts your mood and put you in touch with yourself. Experts recommend walking around 10,000 steps for good health. Sounds like a lot, but really isn't. The next time you're in the office trapped at your desk and feeling sluggish, try walking a little over 5,000 steps through out the day or more and notice your mood suddenly picking up along with your energy. Let the pedometer be your personal trainer in the way of telling you how much steps you've taken thus far. Around 9,000 to 10,000 steps daily will invigorate you and keep you in a fantastic mood. Not to mention the added value of continued good health.
