Living The Holistic Lifestyle Pt 1
Holistic living is about living in as healthy a manner as you are able to live. In its most basic way holistic
living means staying as close to nature as you are able to such as by eating wholesome and organic foods, by
residing in a clean and harmonious environment and surrounding yourself with good things such as love, peace, joy
and positive thoughts and feelings.
Holistic living means finding natural and alternative ways to cope with illnesses, traumas and diseases, both
physical as well as emotional ones. Holistic living is also about being careful to avoid as many environmental
toxins that are man made as you can and to always buy products that are natural, whether you are talking about
food, clothing, bedding, towels, furniture, beauty products and the like.
Holistic living is beneficial for everyone as it improves one's appearance as well as one's mental and emotional
functioning. Many people who choose to adopt the holistic and natural lifestyle find that their senses become
better and brighter as in clearer vision, better hearing, a keener sense of smell, taste and even touch. With the
absence of many toxins individuals find that their hair grows in smoother and shiner and their fingernails are
smoother and gleam with good health.
Some people report being able to see very small objects far away that they could never before and even being
able to detect the most faint of sounds. Vitality and energy is increased ten fold when a person gets rid of the
unnatural and starts living the holistic and organic way of life. This all adds up to better perceptions and a
better overall experience of life. The expression, "Live life to the fullest" really becomes clear once a person
takes up the holistic lifestyle.
Going as basic and back to nature as possible is good for the mind, body and spirit. The person who chooses this
way of life will automatically feel better and so many positive channels will open up to the person. People who
live holistically think clearer and they can work more productively as well as becoming more joyous, compassionate,
supportive and understanding.

you can do. Start slow with one or two facets of the holistic lifestyle and work up gradually to more. Do not allow
yourself to feel pressured into jumping into a whole new way of living, i.e. the wholesome life, but just take
small steps at a time. Some examples include work in natural sunlight whenever possible or lese working under full
spectrum light bulbs.

work with an open window that came bring fresh air into the room as much as possible. Where fresh air is not
available make sure to use an air purifier.
Baths and showers, both can provide healing for the body. It is
best to take a warm bath in the 90 to 95 degree range, and not any hotter. Try to fill the tub so
you can have your shoulders submerged.

low-grade fever, a respiratory problem that includes a stuffed up nose, a sore throat, and a cough,
as well as for bladder infections.

evening, also drink a fair share of water between meals. The best type of water to consume is purified water that
is served at room temperature. Squeezing your own juice, such as fresh squeezed orange juice is your best bet and
then make sure to drink it immediately.
