Feelin’ Alright: Five Ways to Feel Fab Now

Published April 18, 2013

Water Your World

One of the best natural appetite suppressants, water is instrumental in getting your entire system working like a well-oiled–or should we say well-watered—machine. Just a two percent drop in your body water can trigger everything from constipation to depression—not to mention slow weight loss.

Just a few days of drinking eight to 10 8-ounce glasses of water will expedite your body’s natural toxin removal process, which, in turn, will debloat your entire body, leave your skin looking lustrous and even make the whites of your eyes brighter.

No Sugar, Honey

Puffy and old is not a cute look. Want to look 10 years younger and notably leaner in a week (or less!)? Eliminate all refined sugar from your diet starting now. Oftentimes our bodies crave sweets when they really need protein. So the next time you have a hankering for a sweet nothing, go for a turkey slice or two with a handful of blueberries or a spoonful of almond butter and a small green apple.

Go for a Quickie

A quickie workout, that is, at none other than Focus Fitness! 30 minutes of moderate cardio will not only give you oodles of energy and help you feel better both mentally and physically but it will give your face a healthy glow. Exercise boosts circulation, which delivers nutrients to cells and skin. You glow, girl—or guy!

Just Say Om

Meditate, do yoga, go for a walk, take a bath, go for a massage—whatever kind of relaxation strikes your fancy, learning to chill out and just “be here now,” as the famed yogi Ram Dass would say, not only staves off the wear and tear of old age (mentally, physically and emotionally) but also keeps you looking good in the moment.

Get In Those A, B, Cs

Fallen off the vitamin wagon? Get back on it now and you’ll notice a marked difference in your appearance sooner than you think, especially if you are including essential supplements like vitamin D, probiotics and omega-3. From improving your skin and hair to supporting your clean eating and daily exercise routine, vitamins are vital to your overall health and well-being.
