3 Ways To Improve Your Health Right Now


If you are like so many people, you want to know how to improve the quality of your health Right Now.

As Kris Carr says, our health is mainly influenced by what we eat, drink and think.

Here are three things you can do right now to improve your health.


  1. Drink Water

What many people don’t realize is that the human body is made up of 70% water, so ensuring we are drinking it is vitally important. [1] Water supports healthy cells, promotes good digestion and helps flush out toxins from the body. Water also increases energy, helps curb cravings and keeps your skin looking beautiful.

Sometimes when we think we are hungry, we are actually just thirsty. Soft drinks, coffee and energy drinks cannot replace water. Stick with distilled water and experiment with lemon water for detox and for healthy electrolyte replacement after physical activity.

Were you aware that often we mistake feeling thirsty for feeling hungry?

When you next feel hungry, try a glass of water, wait 10 minutes and you will then be able to see if you were truly hungry or just thirsty.

A great tip from Sharon Vecchiarelli is to start your day with a glass of water, then drink a glass throughout your day whenever you “arrive” somewhere. For example, when you arrive at the office, have a glass of water, when you arrive at lunch, have a glass of water, arriving at a meeting, drink a glass of water, arriving at a dinner, drink a glass of water, you get the idea.


  1. Eat Real Food

Another great tip is to eat Real Food.

Real Foods are whole foods made by Nature which haven’t been processed. GM Foods are everywhere today, you literally could call your local supermarket a “GM Grocer”. Be smart and look out for places that sell locally made, organic produce. Not only will your food taste better, your body will thank you for it.

Plus, an added benefit of Real Foods is that they can help you lose weight as they tend to have less refined sugar in them, a major cause of fat and obesity in our modern society.

  1. What Are You Thinking About?

Our Physiology is directly influenced by our Psychology or put simply, how we think matters[2]. Studies at the University of California Davis found that people who listed 5 things they were grateful for each day were a full 25 percent happier, reported fewer health complaints and exercised an average of 1.5 hours more. [3]

I know it’s hard. Especially when you’re going through a low point and it seems like there’s nothing to be grateful for. But here’s the thing, it works.

Start Small. Each morning before you get out of bed, sit quietly and list 5 things you’re thankful for.

As an added benefit, when we are truly grateful, we tend to draw other things into our life to be grateful for.
