9 Easy Daily Non-Negotiable Habits

It’s easy to get lost in all the hype about doing ‘healthy stuff’ everyday. From drinking this potion, breathing this pranayama, exercising this way, listening to this, eating this food group. The list goes on and yep you’re right it can be SOOOO confusing.

It didn’t happen over night for me by any means however I’ve refined my core daily healthy habits and refined them to become my daily non-negotiables.

Yep stuff I do that is 100% non-negotiable.

This is a list of the things I do everyday. And by everyday I mean everyday! Christmas, birthdays, whether I am in an airport, in a different country, at a friend’s house or on day business outing these habits I do regardless!

Hence why they’re called non-negotiable.
(In no particular order)

 

9 Easy Daily Non-Negotiable Habits

1. Quality Water

Just like our beautiful planet is made up of 75% water, our bodies too are largely made up of water. It’s needed by every organ, every cell and for every human function however in my belief majority of people fall far short of receiving enough water their bodies need. Every morning before doing anything the first thing I do is wash my mouth out with water, following with a drink (minimum 750ml) of water to help flush out and wake up my system. Over the rest of the day I’ll drink between 2-4 liters. What type of water? Water isn’t all the same, a lot of water today including tap water has hundreds of hidden chemicals and toxins that can play havoc on our bodies. The water I choose to drink is Reverse Osmosis or Purified Water. (coconut water doesn’t count, even though I have been known to guzzle down coco water too)

2. Oil Pulling

Oil pulling is an ancient Ayurvedic dental technique that draws out toxins in your body to mainly improve oral health and overall health too. As the name goes it’s a technique of swishing a tablespoon of oil around in your mouth for up to 20mins. It’s said that many diseases begin in the mouth, so in my mind if they begin there healthy habits need to begin here too. I use coconut oil, however you can also use sesame seed oil too. Warning: don’t spit the oil down the sink after you’ve swished, be sure to spit it into a bin or garden. No one likes calling a plumbing because your coconut oil has gone hard in the drain.

3. Tongue Scraping

Another dental technique I’m a raving fan of is tongue scraping.  It’s designed to clean and clear out fungi, dead cells, bacterial build-up and food debris. I tongue scrap every time I brush my teeth. Along with oil pulling these two techniques are said to assist in reducing bad breathe. Ps. your tongue is like a map of your health – ‘healthy tongue = healthy bod’.

4. Meditation

My second trip to Bali 4 years ago got me into meditation and visualisation. It’s something I’ve always loved just didn’t do it regularly. Today I find it clears my mind, creates space and strengthens my creativity. Not something I set a straight time limit too however it can range from minimum 15mins to an hour depending on the day. I do find however if I don’t get it done in the morning it quiet often wont happen – so as soon as I slip out of bed in the morning I’m into meditation in the quiet of my home and before my partner causes a racket in the kitchen.

5. Journalling

This is something I’ve only been beginning to master everyday over the last 2 years. Sometimes I forget however the intention everyday to journal is fantastic. It gets my thoughts, gratitude’s, goals, intentions and feelings out of me and onto paper. The process is very cleansing and also vitalizing. Journaling before bed is a fav as it keeps my devices off pre-bed time and gives me more time to turn in and reflect.

6. Move

This could also be labeled ‘get outside’. I’ve been through days in the past were I’m so stuck into my work that I look up and it’s 3pm, I’m still in my PJ’s and I have barely moved. This means nothing but cabin fever. I’ve got to move, particularly outside. Everyday I make the effort to walk, climb stairs, yoga, stretch, swim at the beach or go to gym. It’s all dependent on how I’m feeling and what’s scheduled for the day however always make an effort to move.

7. Eat A Rainbow

Regardless of where I am my goal daily is to eat as many colours as possible from greens, oranges, purples and blues to yellows. This simple goal keeps my mind open, my plate colourful and my meals different. I don’t stress about the exact numbers of nutrients in my food (i’ve never been a numbers counter), rather I focus on the amount of colours and this intern allows a wide range of nutrients. Plus it’s much more fun with colour!

8. Power Hours

These are my daily non-negotiables for my business. Everyday is different for me however at minimum I fit in 2 power hours daily (everyday!). These are blocks of time that are uninterrupted periods where I work with a clear goal in mind. No phone, no social media, no disruptions or procrastinating. I get so much more done in these periods that it enables me more time to do other things. Basically I’m in the zone.

9. Nutritional Products

This is my #1 non-negotiable. I use to be very skeptical about nutritional products and their likely hood of working however when you find ones that do and have amazing science behind them you can’t look back. Our soil today is so compromised, therefor our food too is compromised largely when it comes to it’s nutritional value. Not to mention the environmental factors our body is exposed to daily, wifi, toxins, gas emissions the list goes on. Everyday I take a specific range of nutritional products to ensure my body is as healthy, vibrant and replenished as it can be.
