Clean it up by The Organic Body Mechanic | June 22, 2016

When it comes to a healthy lifestyle the most effective approach is to clean up your food intake. What does "clean up" really mean? There can be varying degrees of cleaning up your nutrition. For some that may mean reducing your frequency of eating fast food to once a day and for others it may mean completely eliminating fast food all together. You are in charge of how extreme these changes are to your nutritional habits.

I lean toward actually cleaning out my pantry and cold food items first and foremost. If I see unhealthy food at the grocery store or in a restaurant, I can avoid it more easily than if it is in my house. It is cathartic and truly productive to go through what is already there before buying new food. It is an opportunity to toss items that may be expired and you get to truly think about what you want to eliminate from your daily meals.

To some, this might look rather organized and rather healthy. For others, this may look like chaos and chocked full of unhealthy foods. Either way, I made myself a goal of cleaning out old foods, eliminating foods that no longer serve my body in a healthy manner, and to reorganize the space. Having a game plan before you begin will help you to stay on track.

So I started from scratch and removed all the food so that I could actually clean the pantry shelves. At the local organizational store, I picked up a few chalk stickers, a chalk pen, and some glass containers. By using the glass containers with the chalk labels, I eliminated a ton of clutter out of the pantry. The glass containers cost more at first but in the long run they preserve the food products longer than plastic bags.

Once the job is complete, you can bask in the glory of your hard work. Did you get rid of old food? Did you clean up your food space? Did you toss old items that are not in your current best interest? Take a moment to thank yourself for taking that time to clean it up. Meal preparation should be a bit easier with your food stores more organized and containing items that you truly care to keep in the mix. Now it is time to cook!

Take A Walk by The Organic Body Mechanic | February 20, 2016

Taking a walk may sound simple, but it can have profound effects on your mind, body, and spirit. Physical stimulation from the repetitive movement has many benefits including managing or preventing heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and high blood pressure. Walking can improve sleep, help develop balance and coordination, strengthen muscles and bones, improve breathing, and slow mental decline. In addition, the physical action of walking can help one to maintain a healthy weight, build endurance, and enrich overall mood. There are plenty of options for taking a walk. For example, if you cannot get outside because of your allergies then hop onto a treadmill or take a stroll in the local mall or grocery store.

Even if it means using a stroller or a wheelchair and the help of another person, one can take a walk. Besides the obvious physical benefits, there are mental benefits that come from the time you spend moving through space. By moving around even just a little bit, one can benefit from visual, auditory, and other sensory sensations that rouse the mind and the spirit. If you are outdoors, you can benefit from vitamin D by spending time in the sunshine. A huge step above watching television, the stimulation of seeing new and unpredictable events in real life can boost your creativity and enhance your mood. If you have the pleasure of taking a walk with another person, talking while walking can also boost brain activity and lead to enhanced cognitive function.

 

Being mindful in your movement is a significant element to walking that can truly change your life. Instead of aimlessly moving, focus on the quality of your breath, engage your pelvic floor muscles, observe your steps, notice the oscillation of your hips, sense the swing of your shoulders, and be aware of all of your senses. What does the air smell like? What do you see around you? What sounds do you hear? What do feel in your body as well as outside your body? Taking the time to notice these small details can completely change your walk and your life. Now, go take a walk.
