00:01

00:04
and I make lots of healthy recipes
00:06
wellness and everything it type videos
00:08
here in this channel and in today’s
00:10
video it’s super special because I’m
00:12
sharing with you guys ten things that I
00:14
do either every day or every week that
00:17
really helped me to live a healthy
00:18
lifestyle and helped me to be healthy
00:20
all-around so if you’re new don’t forget
00:22
to hit that subscribe button as well so
00:24
you don’t miss any future videos and
00:26
let’s just get into the ten healthy
00:28
things first off I start my day with
00:30
either a bulletproof coffee or a
00:32
bulletproof matcha and I love doing this
00:35
because it gives me a nice dose of
00:37
healthy fats in the morning and these
00:39
healthy fats can be used as ketones in
00:41
your brain for brain fuel so especially
00:43
if I’m going to clinic you didn’t know
00:45
I’m a naturopathic intern right now and
00:48
or if I’m going studying using my
00:50
brainpower
00:51
it really helps clear brain fog and
00:53
provides that really good fuel it’s also
00:56
great because it’s good for pre-workout
00:58
because if you’re using coffee or matcha
01:00
both have a bit of caffeine and caffeine
01:02
helps to metabolize fat and you use fat
01:04
in the eyes your workout instead of carb
01:06
fuel
01:07
it also helps prolong intermittent
01:09
fasting so if you’re fasting and you
01:10
have a bulletproof coffee or a
01:12
bulletproof matcha the bulletproof part
01:14
or like the fat doesn’t spike your
01:16
insulin so you’re able to stay fasting
01:18
for a couple more hours so if you guys
01:20
want to know about intermittent fasting
01:21
let me know and I can do more on that
01:22
but I love starting my day with this it
01:25
makes a huge difference plus if you’re
01:27
adding the fats to a coffee
01:29
it does stabilize it so you don’t get
01:31
the jitteriness of coffee you get like
01:33
kind of like a steady energy relief
01:35
number two is a tongue scraping so this
01:37
is my tongue scraper it’s a copper one
01:39
you want to get either a copper or
01:41
Medellin so first thing in the morning
01:43
before you brush your teeth before you
01:44
drink water this is important you tongue
01:47
scrape you literally take it and you
01:49
scrape your tongue it’s super simple but
01:51
this is from aerobatic medicine and
01:53
basically the thought process is when
01:55
you’re sleeping all this kind of gunk
01:56
toxins bacteria buildup on your tongue
01:59
that’s why you have bad breath in the
02:00
morning so when you go you scrape it off
02:02
you’re getting that all off before you
02:04
swallow because if you get up and you
02:05
drink water before you tongue scrape
02:07
then you’re taking all that bacteria and
02:10
dunk on your tongue and you’re
02:11
swallowing it in two
02:12
digestive system and then that’s not
02:15
good so this kind of takes that all off
02:16
before you do anything so this is really
02:19
really good for eliminating toxins and
02:21
it’s gonna help with your skin with your
02:23
digestion with everything so highly
02:25
recommend and a tongue scraper is super
02:27
affordable a link one on Amazon down
02:29
below my next one is having a morning
02:32
ritual morning rituals are really
02:34
important for mental health studies have
02:36
been shown that it helps with depression
02:37
and anxiety and it’s also something nice
02:40
about having a routine and having things
02:42
planned out if you guys want to watch my
02:44
morning routine I will link back down
02:45
below but I as you guys know I make my
02:48
bulletproof either coffee or matcha I
02:50
love doing some Jade rolling some lemon
02:52
water and some gratitude and it really
02:55
just sets my day off to have the best
02:57
day that I can have so it’s really
02:59
important to form one of your own and
03:01
just do what works for you and like
03:03
stick to that morning routine next up is
03:05
having lots of fiber in your diet you
03:07
can get fiber from berries from flax
03:10
from Chia from vegetables all these
03:13
things have fiber and fiber is great at
03:15
decreasing inflammation which means less
03:17
bloating less digestive upset less joint
03:20
issues less autoimmune but it also helps
03:23
you keep a regular weight or help you
03:25
lose weight because fiber keeps you full
03:27
it’s that bulking agent that’s gonna
03:29
fill your stomach and satiate you so I
03:31
like making energy balls which I will
03:34
leave down below they’re full of hemp
03:35
Chia and flax lots of great fiber there
03:39
and then I also like to snack on berries
03:41
and have lots of greens and all of that
03:43
adding those to your meals not only adds
03:45
the benefits of those berries and those
03:47
greens but gives you lots of fiber and
03:49
fiber so so good for you next up our
03:52
healthy fats and guys if I hadn’t merged
03:54
if I had t-shirts it would say fats or
03:57
your friend would like an avocado on it
03:59
because I feel like people are still so
04:01
scared of fats and they’re stuck in that
04:03
whole low-fat craze of like you know the
04:06
to early 2000s but you want healthy fats
04:09
healthy fats are great for your skin
04:10
they actually help you lose weight they
04:13
keep you satiated and those are the
04:14
things that are gonna curb your cravings
04:16
and regulate your blood sugar verses
04:18
carbs which kind of spike your blood
04:20
sugar so you want to be including things
04:22
like nut butters coconut butter avocado
04:26
nuts all that into your diet so that you
04:28
feel full your satiated your blood sugar
04:31
is regulated and you physically glow
04:33
from the inside out
04:34
so I cannot stress enough how much
04:35
adding healthy fats is important in fact
04:38
healthy fats won’t make you fat if I
04:41
could that would be a hashtag as well
04:42
healthy fats don’t make you fat another
04:45
habit I love is meal prep there’s a
04:47
saying I think it’s I’m gonna look it up
04:49
okay it’s by Benjamin Franklin and it’s
04:51
by failing to prepare you are preparing
04:53
to fail which is true if you’re hungry
04:55
and you don’t have healthy things that
04:57
are prepared or with you you’re gonna
04:59
reach for something unhealthy because
05:00
you’re hangry and you want to satiate
05:02
that emotional ravenous person in you so
05:05
I like to meal prep I’m meal prep sweet
05:07
potatoes vegetables proteins healthy
05:10
carbs like yams
05:12
like I said sweet potato and these
05:14
having that on the go or having that
05:15
ready to go to bring for lunch or when I
05:18
come home for dinner even or something
05:20
that I know I can make quick is
05:21
essential to being healthy I always
05:24
carry a snack as well I like raw almonds
05:27
or the bulletproof bars which I made my
05:30
own if you guys want to make them
05:31
they’re so good I’ve been addicted and
05:34
everyone that’s tried them as like been
05:35
deeming me saying how delicious they are
05:37
but they’re delicious and a lot of the
05:40
times I like to include fats and protein
05:42
again they help keep you full they
05:44
regulate your blood sugar so being
05:46
prepared with both meals and snacks or a
05:48
big healthy habit that’s gonna help you
05:50
long term and it’s just easy to do at
05:54
the beginning of the week just so you
05:55
have some mental clarity as well and
05:57
that way you’re not scrambling or you’re
05:59
not waiting like a long time for healthy
06:01
food to be made next up is diffusing
06:03
essential oils I have been into this for
06:05
years and years and years and what I
06:07
love is it’s a great way to clean or
06:10
cleanse the air in your space but you
06:12
can choose things for different things
06:14
you can do lavender for sleep and
06:16
studies have actually shown that
06:17
lavender helps you sleep just smelling
06:19
lavender you can do peppermint to wake
06:21
up you know you can do more citrusy ones
06:24
in the morning too if you’re sick you
06:26
can do eucalyptus and it’s a great
06:28
alternative to candles I mean I still
06:30
like candles and you just have to be
06:31
careful about which ones you buy because
06:33
you don’t want artificial fragrances but
06:36
it’s a great alternative to like some of
06:38
the more popular
06:39
he works candles because it’s more
06:40
natural for you and it cleans the ions
06:43
in the air and releases negative ones so
06:45
that it cleanses the air next one is to
06:47
make a transition to more natural
06:48
products one of the big ones is a
06:50
deodorant I use a primarily pure one you
06:53
want your deodorant to be natural your
06:55
skin is the biggest organ on your skin
06:58
on a daily basis that’s getting absorbed
07:00
and if you’re putting something full
07:02
body and tube it’s like a lotion that’s
07:04
getting absorbed normal Durin’s have
07:05
things like aluminum and endocrine
07:07
disrupters which can influence fertility
07:09
your thyroid just mess up your digestive
07:12
system so you want to reach for more
07:14
natural ones
07:15
I just use a primarily pure one because
07:17
it works and I like the stick form so
07:20
you don’t feel like rub the paste and
07:22
your fingers like I won’t realistically
07:24
just not gonna do that but also just
07:26
using things like rose hip oil as like a
07:28
natural moisturizer in a serum
07:30
it’s just 100% pure and this is like 20
07:33
bucks on Amazon and it’s free of all
07:35
those chemicals so I’m gonna link my
07:37
video where I talked about my favorites
07:39
and below but you can research was good
07:41
for your skin my next habit is more of
07:43
like a thing that I make sure that I
07:45
don’t do and that’s over exercising I
07:47
feel like what comes to health and
07:49
weight loss people think more is better
07:50
and that’s just simply not true
07:52
they want you to train two hours a day
07:54
and they’re doing an hour of cardio
07:56
sprinting run seven days a week and that
07:58
can be really really hard on your body
08:01
and that can drain you because when you
08:02
stress your body out and you’re doing
08:04
too much for your body that releases
08:06
cortisol and when you release cortisol
08:08
then you store abdominal fat and it
08:10
contributes to an abdominal fat it also
08:12
messes with adrenals it messes with your
08:15
thyroid it’s just not good so if you’re
08:17
let’s say you have to get up if you want
08:20
to fit the gym in into your day at 4:30
08:22
in the morning and you go to sleep at
08:23
like 11:00 and you’re getting 4 to 5
08:25
hours sleep because you want to wake up
08:27
early and go to the gym and stress your
08:29
body out because you think you’re doing
08:30
it good let me tell you you’re not
08:32
you’re just gonna store the back you’re
08:34
gonna spike your cortisol stress your
08:36
body out and then you’re not gonna lose
08:37
weight so just don’t do it
08:39
Oh move your body and do what feels good
08:42
but don’t over exercise and overtire
08:44
your body to the point where you’re
08:45
stressing it out because it’s not going
08:47
to give you any benefit in the long run
08:48
my last healthy habit that I love is dry
08:51
brushing now I do this
08:52
about once a week not every day but
08:55
basically this is a dry brush and you do
08:57
it on dry skin
08:59
hence dry brushing you work from your
09:01
feet and then you go up towards your
09:02
heart or like your arms and then towards
09:04
your heart just make sure you go from
09:06
your appendages towards your heart and
09:08
it helps with lymph flow it helps with
09:10
muscle tone it helps with like cellulite
09:13
if you’re a girl and you’re worried
09:14
about that because it moves things and
09:16
it boosts circulation and it’s also just
09:18
really invigorating so you just start
09:20
from either your hands or your legs and
09:22
you go like this and you just work your
09:23
way up and it’s really nice to do before
09:26
the shower so I’ll do this before the
09:27
shower while the shower kind of heats up
09:29
have a shower and then I always apply
09:31
some body oil after just to hydrate and
09:34
just it feels nice really great
09:36
exfoliator – before either self-tanning
09:38
or shaving – gets off all the dead skin
09:41
so it’s gonna make you glow for
09:42
summertime – so if you haven’t yet make
