Looking after our health is vital to living a long and happy life. But how do you ensure that you’re looking after all aspects of your well-being? This blog is part of a series of seven blogs on this topic.

Seven Elements for Well-being

We’ve come up with a list of seven elements that we believe contribute to living a healthy, happy life. Over the next weeks we’ll look at them one by one –

Fire – Take a daily dose of sun and grab some vitamin D
Water – Hydration is fundamental and bathing is pretty important too!
Air – Fresh air, take it in with simple breathing exercises
Earth – Grounding through Meditation (the importance of controlling your thoughts and relaxing your mind) and Family (embrace your close relationships to share experiences and life milestones)
Exercise – There’s no denying how vital exercise is to health and we discuss several types with big benefits
Keeping it Simple – Bartering, working to support your lifestyle and reducing material stressors


Your daily life includes a lot of tasks and chores that need to be done. Often, adults get stressed due to the work load at office or daily chores at home.

Young people get stressed due to their academic work, peer pressure and sometimes due to the fear of missing out.

Stress can prove to be harmful for your mental and physical health. The most well-known, mindful way of getting relief from this stress and relaxing your mind is through meditation.

Meditation has been practised on earth since ancient times. It has been proven to keep a persons mind calm and free from worries. It is not only recommended for people who are under stress, but is also beneficial to anyone who practices it. It keeps your mind sound and away from any worries and triggers the flow of energy from the universe in to your being.

A healthy lifestyle keeps you happy, and in addition to meditation, you must also ensure that you are living a sustainable life and eating healthily. It’s helpful to consume organic food and organic skincare to keep yourself away from impurities.

Importance of Meditation in your Daily Life

Better Sleep – Meditation triggers relaxation in your brain which aids in sleeping well. If you suffer from insomnia, mediation is the key to get a good night sleep.

Sharpens Memory – Meditation helps you gain mindfulness and makes you aware of your surroundings. It helps you concentrate well and keeps you away from distractions, hence, developing your short-term memory.

Elevates your Mood – Meditating regularly keeps you happy and maintains a flow of positive and constructive thoughts in your mind.

If you want to maintain a healthy living meditation is the key for you. It keeps you less stressed, improves health, helps you sleep better and makes a positive impact on your life.

Healthy Eating For The Whole Family

Healthy Eating For The Whole Family

Juggling the nutritional needs for every family member and ensuring they receive healthy foods and appropriate portions can become quite overwhelming, so consider the following guidelines.

Start With Fruits and Vegetables

Children under three years of age should have two servings of fruits and vegetables each day; between ages four and eight these portions should be increased to three servings daily. Adults should have five servings of fruits and vegetables every day.

Consider these easy ways of adding good, healthy foods to your family’s diet –

  • Add blueberries or sliced bananas to morning cereal.
  • Have a smoothie for breakfast, lunch, or dessert.
  • Ask for fruits and vegetables with your favourite foods, like broccoli with your pizza or topping pancakes with strawberries.
  • Add lettuce, sprouts, and slices of cucumber and tomato to sandwiches.

Dairy, Grains, and Proteins

While fruits and vegetables are vital to a healthy diet, there are other food groups everyone needs to stay healthy –

  • Dairy foods,
  • Whole grains,
  • Healthy fats, and
  • Lean protein.

Limiting Sugar and Salt

Consider the following ways of limiting your family’s intake of sugar and salt –

  • Limit processed and fast foods,
  • Eliminate soda and all sweetened beverages, and
  • Make your own frozen treats.

Every family member should be aware of their salt intake; excess salt in your diet can cause high blood pressure, leading to an increased risk of heart disease.

Consider making the following dietary changes to limit your salt intake –

  • Choose frozen over canned foods, and
  • Add fresh herbs when cooking and seasoning foods.

How to Transition to Healthy Nutrition For The Entire Family

  • Cook more often: When you’re the chef it’s up to you how much salt, fat, sugar and other ingredients are added to your meals.
  • Eat together: Families who eat together make better meal choices and develop healthier eating habits. These habits will continue when eating away from home.
  • Have your pantry stocked with healthy snacks: Ensure you always have a range of healthy snack options.
  • Involve the whole family in meal planning: Family members can take turns in choosing the menu and preparing  meals.
  • Watch portion sizes: When guilty pleasures are completely eliminated it simply makes you crave them more. Restrict these to special occasions and keep portion sizes small.
  • Make gradual changes: Your family will accept gradual healthy changes made over time.

Drinking water provides countless benefits to your body.

Water is the reason for the existence of life on earth. From human beings to animals, from tiny plants and huge trees to micro-organisms like bacteria, every living being on the planet requires water to survive.

Water is a vital nutrient for your body. The body comprises about 60 percent of water, therefore, you must always ensure to keep yourself well hydrated so your body functions properly.

Although the benefits of water are many, drinking adequate amount of water is crucial for you as it proves to be an asset for your body.

Facts about consuming water

  • Water facilitates the removal of harmful toxins and waste materials from the body
  • Drinking moderate amount of water can help you to lose weight
  • Water assists in regulating your body temperature
  • Water carries oxygen to your brain

Benefits of drinking adequate water every day

  • Drinking about 2 to 3 litres of water daily boosts your skin quality and enhances your complexion
  • Water forms the mucus and saliva in the mouth and keeps the eyes and nose moist which prevents damage due to friction
  • Your digestive system depends on water, so apart from eating healthily, you must also drink enough water to ensure that your digestive system functions appropriately
  • Water facilitates your body to assimilate vitamins, minerals, amino aids, lipids and more

In addition to drinking water, taking a hot or cold shower has also been proven to have various perks for your body.

Taking a shower reduces fatigue in the body and can improve your heart health. A shower after a lazy day can help you get the blood actively flowing through the body. A study has proven that taking a bath can trigger Stress Induced Analgesia which reduces pain. Getting in the shower is also beneficial for your brain as it promotes memory, learning, maintenance and growth of nerve cells.

Water is a vital element to lead a joyful life. Healthy eating is key, and the proper intake of water is also necessary to keep dehydration and diseases at bay. In addition to this, taking a shower in natural water is also essential to maintain the cleanliness and health of your skin and hair.

The Star of your Stomach: The Small Intestine

The Star of your Stomach The Small Intestine

Your body is composed of many different organs and cells, all contributing to your health and wellness. Many of us take our stomachs for granted, and simply believe that it is a place where our food is kept and digested. Quite the contrary; the stomach is a site for countless processes that take place in order for us to be able to absorb the necessary nutrients and keep our systems balanced. Let’s put the spotlight on the small intestine, the true star of our digestive systems.

What does the small intestine do?

The small intestine (also known as the small bowel) is the longest portion of our digestive system, reaching lengths of 7.5 meters (20-25 feet) long! It is referred to as the “small” intestine due to a smaller diameter at it’s opening in comparison to the large intestine (your colon). The main function of this amazing organ is to break down and absorb ingested nutrients while utilizing the gastric juices it produces and food particles in order to move your food through the digestive tract. The small intestine receives digestive enzymes from the pancreas and liver which allows the foods we eat to get broken down and move through our intestines easily.

Fats, carbohydrates, proteins, vitamins and minerals are all absorbed through the help of the small intestine. Three sections make up the small intestine: The duodenum, which receives those digestive enzymes, the jejunum, which is the main hub of carbohydrate and protein breakdown, and the ileum which receives food from the jejunum and empties into your colon. A normal, healthy small intestine has very few bacteria in comparison to the large intestine. Any change in this bacteria count can result in disease and illness.

Your small intestine also prevents toxins and microorganisms from entering into your digestive tract. The gastrointestinal barrier within the walls of the small intestine are responsible for protecting you from these toxins. It also utilizes your immune cells in order to help combat the disease-causing bacteria. Yet another function of your small intestine is to maintain a balance of your fluids and electrolytes (especially your sodium levels).

How to keep it healthy

So how do you keep this helpful organ healthy? Your diet is most important when it comes to the health of your small intestine. Being mindful of incorporating fiber into your diet will do wonders for your digestive system. Fiber helps stimulate the muscle contractions that the small intestine utilizes in order to help break down your food. Try to think green when it comes to balancing your diet with fiber…broccoli, spinach, zucchini, asparagus, etc. A few other factors to consider include getting enough sleep, decreasing your stress and exercising. Sleep is when your body heals itself and recovers, as well as aiding your internal organs to reset and keep your body healthy.

Habits to avoid

A couple harmful habits for your small intestine include excessive alcohol, smoking and a high-fat diet. Eating a diet high in fat can lead to possible nerve damage within your small intestine as well as increasing your risk for cancer. Smoking and alcohol both increase your acid production, which erodes the lining of your small intestine. Do your body a favour and take care of it! Once you begin to be mindful of what you are putting into your body, you will notice an increase in your energy and a decrease in your stress. Keep your wellness a top priority!
