8 Tips to Improve Your Health


Although I hate to admit it, fall is coming and summer will soon be behind us. But if you think positively,  fall is a great time to check your healthy habits and acquire new ones. Here are my 8 Tips how to improve your well being in this fall.

1.Consume less coffee or stop drinking it completely

I did this again when my work started. During the summer time I enjoyed coffee maybe four times per weeks and in some weeks even every day. As school started I cut down coffee entirely and as a result my sleep has been soooo good. I wake up feeling refreshed and most importantly I don´t wake up during the night. Here is my dedicated post about How I quit drinking coffee and it changed my life.

2. Reduce the amount of sugar you eat

Needless to say sugar is aging us and giving a lot of troubles to our bodies. I wrote about the harmful effects of sugar in here.

3. Drink one juice per day

By this I don´t mean orange juice or apple juices sold in the store. Instead drink your own juices. Juicing is a great way to hydrate your body and give your body nutrients. Juices are good supplements for coffee and tea. Too much caffeine is never a good thing. By owning your own juicer you can make the kind of drink you want at the moment. If you crave something fresh and green, make a juice from cucumber, avocado and lemon. If you crave something sweet, try making a juice from pine apple and orange. Now when the apples are ripe, try to make apple juice. My son loves this!

4. Fast 12 hours each night

If you want to try just one thing to lose weight, try the 12 hour rule. This means that you will have 12 hour break between your dinner and breakfast. Read more here.

5. Go to bed half an hour earlier each day

This is easy to apply to your life. Commit to this and you will wake up feeling more energetic. Try for one week. That´s all! Click here my other tips how to improve your sleep.

6. Be more grateful

There have been a lot of studies which indicate that people who are grateful are the happiest people. Write a gratitude journal. Tips for that in this post.

7. Get yourself a hobby


It is very important to have meaningful things in life besides work and home. It can be anything you love to do. Find enough time to do what YOU actually want to do. If it is a hobby which will move your body then you will get even more health benefits.

8.Laugh more

When is the last time you laughed so hard it made your belly hurt? If you cannot remember, maybe it´s time to start laughing more. Laughter is the best therapy. Laughter decreases stress hormones and improves your body´s resistance to disease.

Lastly a bonus tip:

learn how to eat healthy food in your everyday life. Now is the right time to ditch sugar and processed foods and invest in your own health! Have you checked my Nutrition Packages or Workout Plans? All my packages are now for sale, Healthy Eating Basic for 19€ and Fit for Life Basic 19 €.

I Quit Drinking Coffee and it Changed My Life

The U.S.Food and Drug Administration (FDA) says about 80 percent of U.S. adults take some form of caffeine every day. Accordingly, coffee is one of the most commonly used ingredients in the world. But caffeine does so much more than just keeping you awake.It’s a central nervous system stimulant that affects your body in numerous ways. So, let's talk about this and why drinking coffee might not be good for for you. While there has been numerous studies about the benefits of coffee, such as it increases alertness , lowers the risk of depression and reduces the risk of brain diseases , it has also negative effects on sleep and anxiety and it can cause headaches, panic attacks, adrenal fatigue, loss of energy, it can deprive minerals and vitamins from your body (read more on here ) As I mentioned before( here ), I quit drinking coffee last spring.

Why Are Cola Drinks So Addictive?

Did you know that in Argentina people drink the most soft drinks in the world? Their annual consumption is 155 liters per capita.  Not far behind is number two, the USA with 154 liters per capita. Americans are one of the largest consumers of the soda drinks in the world because of their modern lifestyle and high incomes. As it is very common to drink colas or other soft drinks but I have heard many people saying that they cannot stop drinking them. I started to wonder what is it that makes drinking Coca-Cola so addictive? Is it the caffeine, sugar or the artificial sweeteners? Besides what's the harm in drinking Coca-Cola? Below I will examine these three issues. Caffeine content The caffeine content in a 330ml serving of regular (sugar) Coca-Cola is about 32 mg. Compared to a a mug of coffee which contains 100 mg of caffeine that is a bit less. According to the Coca-Cola company the caffeine in their drinks is not addictive. However, if you are really sensitive to caffein

5 Effective Weight Loss Drinks

When it comes to losing weight, there is a lot of different kinds of detox packages and weight loss drinks available. However, I would not recommend using these products because they only offer short term benefits if any benefits at all. Instead I encourage to use a weight loss method which is sustainable. Usually this is acquiring healthy eating and exercising habits for life. You can achieve this by following my Nutrition Programme . Surely different starter kits, such as detox kits and ready to eat soup diets may come in handy but eventually when you have lost some weight, you should opt for methods which offer permanent results. Therefore, in this post I will share with you 5 effective weight loss drink recipes. I would like to remind you that drinking these drinks are not your only diet.  On the contrary, these are recommended beside your healthy meals and these healthy drinks could replace your other sugary sodas and juices..Besides they are also healthy and delicious too.

How to Stay Young and Healthy

The other day I watched a really interesting BBC document about how to stay young and more specifically how to prevent dementia and Alzheimer's disease. As you get older your brains begin to shrink. As a result of this your cognitive skills diminish. How to prevent this? The key is to use your brains on a daily basis. More specifically scientists have discovered that learning a new language has the most efficient way to prevent dementia because learning will increase the size of your brain. According to these scientists other important ways to affect the size of your brain were reading exercising in general learning a new skill, such as playing guitar studying In the document researches investigated whether regular walks or ping poll plays had an effect on the brain tissue. The test groups walked or played ping poll for 2 hours per week. The results revealed that both test groups gained positive effects on their brain tissue because of their increased exercise. Mo

My Healthy Morning Routines

What kind of morning rituals do you have on the weekends? In this post I will share mine. I try to follow a consistent sleep schedule in which I try to go to bed at 10 pm at the latest on the weekends and wake up at 7.30 at the latest. Having said this, if I stay up later than 10 pm I don't stress about it. But if I have a "normal" weekend at home this is what I usually do..I have found a lot of positive things about waking up early. Previously I wrote about  how waking up early made me more productive  and  how to become a morning person . I encourage you to try this! After I have woken up, I drink a glass of room temperature water which I have left in my toilet the previous night. Then it's time to move my body. This part of my morning is the best part which encourages me to wake up early. My morning movements depend on how I feel in that morning. Sometimes I go for a short walk or run just to get some fresh air and wake up my body. In my opi

10 vinkkiä turvotuksen vähentämiseen

Vaivaako turvotus? Kokeile alla olevia vinkkejä ja saatat päästä kiusallisesta turvotuksesta eroon. 1. Syö säännöllisesti pieniä aterioita 5 kertaa päivässä. 2. Lisää kuitujen määrää. Kuidut auttavat suolen toiminnassa, mikä jo sinällään vähentää turvotuksen tunnetta vatsassa. Tähtää 25 g päivässä. Hyviä kuidun lähteitä ovat kaurapuuro, täysjyväviljatuotteet, päärynä, avokado. Kaurapuuro marjojen kanssa on hyvä nesteenpoistaja. 3. Vältä suolan käyttöä. Muistathan, että leivässä on yleensä paljon suolaa, leikkeleistä ja juustoista puhumattakaan. Jos käytät näitä elintarvikkeita, valitse vähäsuolaisin vaihtoehto tai sydänmerkki. Älä lisää suolaa riisiä keittäessäsi. Katso myös paljonko kasvis- ja lihaliemikuutiosi sisältää suolaa. Voit yllättyä!Suolaa tulisi saada maksimissaan 5g päivässä. Useilla suomalaisilla tämä määrä ylittyy reilusti. 4. Vältä nopeita hiilihydraatteja. Näitä ovat muun muassa sokeri ja valkoviljatuotteet. Nämä keräävät nestettä elimistöösi ja aiheuttava
