Five Ways to Live Longer & Healthier!

Expert advice points to what we all must do in order to live longer and healthier lives; Minimize Toxins!

But how? We live in a World Full of Toxins!

Here are the top:

5 Ways to Minimize Your Exposure to Toxins:

1.) Your Water
Do your research and find the best quality water filtration system and try to drink a majority of your water from it per day. You have been told to drink an adequate amount of water per day, 8 - 8oz glasses, right? WOW! Don't drink 64 oz of toxins too. Did you know that 80% of the lead in your body came from the water you drank? You can click to Compare water pitchers. If you choose, you can view/purchase a  water pitcher.

2.) Your Food
Yes, you are filling your body with toxins if you haven't switched to Organics yet. Research shows that you will not only live longer and healthier but that they're also cheaper! Here are some links you can check out if you aren't yet convinced that Organics are right for you: 45 reasons & 5 reasons organic can save your bank account.

3.) Your Cleaners
If you don't already use nontoxic cleaners and are not sure you need to make the switch. Please consider doing so, for your safety, the safety of others who visit your home and for the safety of the planet. There has been plenty of published research regarding the health hazards from the dangerous chemicals found in household cleaners. I found a couple of great links; 15 Toxic Trespassers & What's hiding in your cleaners? The President of the United States doesn't allow toxic cleaners in the White House! Why should you in your house? What Cleaners are used to clean the White House? There are dozens of ways to go "non toxic" in your home but if you are sick of researching and reading labels or making your own by hand, you can click here to view/purchase nontoxic cleaners.

4.) Your Weight
It is true; preservatives in canned, bottled and packaged foods, and trans fats, high fructose corn syrup, artificial flavoring & coloring to enhance cravings, and hormones and antibiotics given to farm animals, are all laden with toxins. The more of these items you ingest, the more toxic your body. I am suggesting maintaining a healthy weight with an exercise program and weight management/sports nutrition products to support your efforts. Of course, I want you to get moving to your own beat! What makes YOU happy? Walking, running, a class? Exercise reduces toxins. Choose something and start out small. Write down your accomplishments so that you can watch your progress. The self confidence you will gain will be radiating from you! Also, do some research before you choose a weight management/sports nutrition line. Go here to the link of toxic protein drinks. Don't reach for hydration full of high fructose corn syrup. Choose carefully, if you are in a time crunch and want a suggestion for products that are proven safe and effective, you can click to view/purchase Cinch for weight management and here for Sports Nutrition.

5.) Laugh
What are you looking forward to right now? Make a list of everything that makes you happy. Now start putting those on your calendar and on your priority list! Like exercise, laughing helps rid you of those nasty toxins!

Start the conversation with somebody . . . "Hey, I have been reading about all of this buzz on toxins in and around us. What are your thoughts?" "Have you made any changes?" "I am getting more serious about this issue, here is what I am going to do . . . "
