In this blog post, we will explore different aspects of holistic living and how they can benefit our overall health and happiness.

Holistic Living: Our Take

The foundation of holistic living is the belief that all aspects of our lives are interconnected. Our physical health is affected by our emotional and spiritual well-being, and vice versa. By taking care of all aspects of our being, we can achieve a greater sense of balance and harmony in our lives.

So, how can we incorporate holistic living into our daily lives? Here are a few key practices to get started:

  1. Eat a balanced, healthy diet: The food we eat plays a significant role in our overall health and well-being. Focus on consuming whole, nutrient-rich foods that fuel your body and mind. Eating nutrient rich whole foods can influence your mood, health, and wellness. Studies show that food in your gut microbiome play a role on your mental health - "Gut bacteria can even affect your mental state by producing mood-altering neurotransmitters like dopamine, which regulates pleasure, learning and motivation, and serotonin, which plays a role in happiness, appetite and sexual desire. Some recent studies suggest that the composition of your gut microbiome can even play a role in how well you sleep." - click here to read more.

  2. Exercise regularly: Physical activity is essential for maintaining a healthy body and mind. Find activities that you enjoy and make them a regular part of your routine. A healthy body is good for the mind and soul.

  3. Get enough sleep: Sleep is crucial for our bodies to repair and regenerate. Aim for 7-8 hours of sleep each night to ensure you wake up feeling rested and rejuvenated. 

  4. Practice mindfulness: Mindfulness is the practice of being present in the moment, without judgment. Incorporate mindfulness practices like meditation or deep breathing exercises into your daily routine to reduce stress and promote emotional well-being.

  5. Connect with nature: Of course, this is one of our favorites! Spending time in nature has been shown to have a positive impact on our mental and physical health. Take time to get outside and connect with the natural world around you. Spending time in the sun is great for your mental health. In fact, studies show "a link between vitamin D deficiency and depression. Researchers behind a 2013 meta-analysis noticed that study participants with depression also had low vitamin D levels. The same analysis found that, statistically, people with low vitamin D were at a much greater risk of depression." - click here to read more

  6. Cultivate healthy relationships: Our relationships with others are essential to our emotional and spiritual well-being. Surround yourself with people who support and uplift you. Finding people who you truly vibe with can eliminate stress. Studies show stress can be neurotoxic which is something we definatly do not want! "Stress can kill brain cells and even reduce the size of the brain. Chronic stress has a shrinking effect on the prefrontal cortex, the area of the brain responsible for memory and learning. While stress can shrink the prefrontal cortex, it can increase the size of the amygdala, which can make the brain more receptive to stress" - click here to read more

  7. Take care of your spirit: Whether it's through prayer, yoga, meditation, or other spiritual practices, taking time to connect with your spiritual side can have a profound impact on your overall well-being.

Incorporating these practices into your daily routine can help you achieve a greater sense of balance and harmony in your life. Remember, holistic living is not a one-size-fits-all approach – it's about finding what works best for you and your unique needs. By taking a holistic approach to health and wellness, you can achieve a greater sense of well-being and live a more fulfilling life.
