Being healthy can be more expensive as well, but it doesn’t have to be…
…Dr. Harold H Bloomfield, a psychiatrist in private practice in Vista, California shares 12 simple ways to improve your health.
- INHALE AN ENERGIZING SCENT. Research suggests that lemon and peppermint scents are energizing. Have an occasional cup of lemon peppermint tea…or chew peppermint gum. Keep a bottle of peppermint and/or lemon extract to sniff…or experiment with potpourri containing other energizing scents such as pine, jasmine, or orange.
- SIP ICE WATER. It keeps your cells hydrated andhelps you burn calories.
- PRACTICE “ONE-BREATH” MEDITATION.You don’t have to spend years mastering mediation. This one-breath method is a powerful, straightforward relaxation technique that can be practiced anytime, anywhere. Try it whenever you feel fatigued or out of sorts.What to do: Sit in a comfortable chair. Straighten your back, relax your shoulders and take a deep breath. Let the air “open” your chest. Imagine it filling every cell in your body. Hold the breath for a moment, then exhale, releasing every bit of tension.
- MINIMIZE NOISE AT HOME AND AT WORK. Loud or irritating sound creates severe emotional and physical tension. Fortunately, many aggravating noises can be silenced.
- BASK IN BRIGHT LIGHT. Most people get a powerful surge of energy from sunlight or bright indoor light. Try moving your desk chair closer to a window…or, better yet, take a five-minute outdoor walk every few hours.
- DO ABDOMINAL EXERCISE. Use this technique while sitting at your desk or while stuck in traffic. Sit up straight. Place hands on hips with thumbs pointing toward your back. Exhale slowly and completely, pushing the last air out forcefully with your lower abdominals.
- PERFORM MENTAL “CROSS-TRAINING.” Cross-training is the process by which you “stretch” your mind in as many different directions as possible by engaging in a variety of mental and physical activities. Word puzzles and other games are an easy way to perform this cross-training.
- COOK WITH “NUTRICEUTICALS.” These are vegetables, herbs and spices that have specific healing properties like garlic, onions, basil, cumin, turmeric, black pepper, jalapenos, hot red peppers, mustard oil, and cinnamon.
- CHECK YOUR READING POSTURE. Poor posture–leaning over a desk, for instance–can cause tension headaches, vision problems and pain in the jaw and/or neck.
- DO TRIGGER-POINT THERAPY. Wherever you feel tense, feel a tight band of muscle tissue–a trigger point. Press or squeeze it with light to moderate pressure. Continue pressing for 5-10 seconds, then release.
- CURB INDOOR POLLUTION. Whenever possible, keep your windows open. All gas appliances should be checked annually and properly vented to the outside to limit their output of carbon monoxide. Use exhaust fans in the bathroom, kitchen and garage whenever you use these rooms. Make your home and office smoke-free.
- DO ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. “Lyming” is the Caribbean art of doing nothing–without feeling guilty about it. Try lyming frequently to give your brain time to process all the information it receives over the course of the day.
