hey everyone welcome back to my channel
and welcome if you’re new my name is Liv
and I make lots of healthy recipes
wellness and everything it type videos
here in this channel and in today’s
video it’s super special because I’m
sharing with you guys ten things that I
do either every day or every week that
really helped me to live a healthy
lifestyle and helped me to be healthy
all-around so if you’re new don’t forget
to hit that subscribe button as well so
you don’t miss any future videos and
let’s just get into the ten healthy
things first off I start my day with
either a bulletproof coffee or a
bulletproof matcha and I love doing this
because it gives me a nice dose of
healthy fats in the morning and these
healthy fats can be used as ketones in
your brain for brain fuel so especially
if I’m going to clinic you didn’t know
I’m a naturopathic intern right now and
or if I’m going studying using my
brainpower
it really helps clear brain fog and
provides that really good fuel it’s also
great because it’s good for pre-workout
because if you’re using coffee or matcha
both have a bit of caffeine and caffeine
helps to metabolize fat and you use fat
in the eyes your workout instead of carb
fuel
it also helps prolong intermittent
fasting so if you’re fasting and you
have a bulletproof coffee or a
bulletproof matcha the bulletproof part
or like the fat doesn’t spike your
insulin so you’re able to stay fasting
for a couple more hours so if you guys
want to know about intermittent fasting
let me know and I can do more on that
but I love starting my day with this it
makes a huge difference plus if you’re
adding the fats to a coffee
it does stabilize it so you don’t get
the jitteriness of coffee you get like
kind of like a steady energy relief
number two is a tongue scraping so this
is my tongue scraper it’s a copper one
you want to get either a copper or
Medellin so first thing in the morning
before you brush your teeth before you
drink water this is important you tongue
scrape you literally take it and you
scrape your tongue it’s super simple but
this is from aerobatic medicine and
basically the thought process is when
you’re sleeping all this kind of gunk
toxins bacteria buildup on your tongue
that’s why you have bad breath in the
morning so when you go you scrape it off
you’re getting that all off before you
swallow because if you get up and you
drink water before you tongue scrape
then you’re taking all that bacteria and
dunk on your tongue and you’re
swallowing it in two
digestive system and then that’s not
good so this kind of takes that all off
before you do anything so this is really
really good for eliminating toxins and
it’s gonna help with your skin with your
digestion with everything so highly
recommend and a tongue scraper is super
affordable a link one on Amazon down
below my next one is having a morning
ritual morning rituals are really
important for mental health studies have
been shown that it helps with depression
and anxiety and it’s also something nice
about having a routine and having things
planned out if you guys want to watch my
morning routine I will link back down
below but I as you guys know I make my
bulletproof either coffee or matcha I
love doing some Jade rolling some lemon
water and some gratitude and it really
just sets my day off to have the best
day that I can have so it’s really
important to form one of your own and
just do what works for you and like
stick to that morning routine next up is
having lots of fiber in your diet you
can get fiber from berries from flax
from Chia from vegetables all these
things have fiber and fiber is great at
decreasing inflammation which means less
bloating less digestive upset less joint
issues less autoimmune but it also helps
you keep a regular weight or help you
lose weight because fiber keeps you full
it’s that bulking agent that’s gonna
fill your stomach and satiate you so I
like making energy balls which I will
leave down below
they’re full of hemp Chia and flax lots
of great fiber there and then I also
like to snack on berries and have lots
of greens and all of that adding those
to your meals not only adds the benefits
of those berries and those greens but
gives you lots of fiber and fiber so so
good for you next up our healthy fats
and guys if I hadn’t merged if I had
t-shirts it would say fats or your
friend would like an avocado on it
because I feel like people are still so
scared of fats and they’re stuck in that
whole low-fat craze of like you know the
to early 2000s but you want healthy fats
healthy fats are great for your skin
they actually help you lose weight they
keep you satiated and those are the
things that are gonna curb your cravings
and regulate your blood sugar verses
carbs which kind of spike your blood
sugar so you want to be including things
like nut butters coconut butter avocado
nuts all that into your diet so that you
feel full your satiated your blood sugar
is regulated and you physically glow
from the inside out
so I cannot stress enough how much
adding healthy fats is important in fact
healthy fats won’t make you fat if I
could that would be a hashtag as well
healthy fats don’t make you fat another
habit I love is meal prep there’s a
saying I think it’s I’m gonna look it up
okay it’s by Benjamin Franklin and it’s
by failing to prepare you are preparing
to fail which is true if you’re hungry
and you don’t have healthy things that
are prepared or with you you’re gonna
reach for something unhealthy because
you’re hangry and you want to satiate
that emotional ravenous person in you so
I like to meal prep I’m meal prep sweet
potatoes vegetables proteins healthy
carbs like yams
like I said sweet potato and these
having that on the go or having that
ready to go to bring for lunch or when I
come home for dinner even or something
that I know I can make quick is
essential to being healthy I always
carry a snack as well I like raw almonds
or the bulletproof bars which I made my
own if you guys want to make them
they’re so good I’ve been addicted and
everyone that’s tried them as like been
deeming me saying how delicious they are
but they’re delicious and a lot of the
times I like to include fats and protein
again they help keep you full they
regulate your blood sugar so being
prepared with both meals and snacks or a
big healthy habit that’s gonna help you
long term and it’s just easy to do at
the beginning of the week just so you
have some mental clarity as well and
that way you’re not scrambling or you’re
not waiting like a long time for healthy
food to be made next up is diffusing
essential oils I have been into this for
years and years and years and what I
love is it’s a great way to clean or
cleanse the air in your space but you
can choose things for different things
you can do lavender for sleep and
studies have actually shown that
lavender helps you sleep just smelling
lavender you can do peppermint to wake
up you know you can do more citrusy ones
in the morning too if you’re sick you
can do eucalyptus and it’s a great
alternative to candles I mean I still
like candles and you just have to be
careful about which ones you buy because
you don’t want artificial fragrances but
it’s a great alternative to like some of
the more popular
he works candles because it’s more
natural for you and it cleans the ions
in the air and releases negative ones so
that it cleanses the air next one is to
make a transition to more natural
products one of the big ones is a
deodorant I use a primarily pure one you
want your deodorant to be natural your
skin is the biggest organ on your skin
on a daily basis that’s getting absorbed
and if you’re putting something full
body and tube it’s like a lotion that’s
getting absorbed normal Durin’s have
things like aluminum and endocrine
disrupters which can influence fertility
your thyroid just mess up your digestive
system so you want to reach for more
natural ones
I just use a primarily pure one because
it works and I like the stick form so
you don’t feel like rub the paste and
your fingers like I won’t realistically
just not gonna do that but also just
using things like rose hip oil as like a
natural moisturizer in a serum
it’s just 100% pure and this is like 20
bucks on Amazon and it’s free of all
those chemicals so I’m gonna link my
video where I talked about my favorites
and below but you can research was good
for your skin my next habit is more of
like a thing that I make sure that I
don’t do and that’s over exercising I
feel like what comes to health and
weight loss people think more is better
and that’s just simply not true
they want you to train two hours a day
and they’re doing an hour of cardio
sprinting run seven days a week and that
can be really really hard on your body
and that can drain you because when you
stress your body out and you’re doing
too much for your body that releases
cortisol and when you release cortisol
then you store abdominal fat and it
contributes to an abdominal fat it also
messes with adrenals it messes with your
thyroid it’s just not good so if you’re
let’s say you have to get up if you want
to fit the gym in into your day at 4:30
in the morning and you go to sleep at
like 11:00 and you’re getting 4 to 5
hours sleep because you want to wake up
early and go to the gym and stress your
body out because you think you’re doing
it good let me tell you you’re not
you’re just gonna store the back you’re
gonna spike your cortisol stress your
body out and then you’re not gonna lose
weight so just don’t do it
Oh move your body and do what feels good
but don’t over exercise and overtire
your body to the point where you’re
stressing it out because it’s not going
to give you any benefit in the long run
my last healthy habit that I love is dry
brushing now I do this
about once a week not every day but
basically this is a dry brush and you do
it on dry skin
hence dry brushing you work from your
feet and then you go up towards your
heart or like your arms and then towards
your heart just make sure you go from
your appendages towards your heart and
it helps with lymph flow it helps with
muscle tone it helps with like cellulite
if you’re a girl and you’re worried
about that because it moves things and
it boosts circulation and it’s also just
really invigorating so you just start
from either your hands or your legs and
you go like this and you just work your
way up and it’s really nice to do before
the shower so I’ll do this before the
shower while the shower kind of heats up
have a shower and then I always apply
some body oil after just to hydrate and
just it feels nice really great
exfoliator – before either self-tanning
or shaving – gets off all the dead skin
so it’s gonna make you glow for
summertime – so if you haven’t yet make
sure you subscribe and come follow on
Instagram as well because I’m always
posting like little tidbits of what I do
and how to be healthy like they’re
really simple easy things that you can
do in your life that’ll make a big
difference so head on over there and
yeah I will see you guys in my next
