5 Things to Start Your Primal Journey Today

Get out in the Sunshine


Spending 10-15 minutes a day in the sunshine can help boost your Vitamin D which is vital for optimal health. This can be a challenge the further from the equator you are as the angle of the sun may not be the best for Vitamin D production in the winter months. I still recommend getting outside as the fresh air will do wonders to your mood and immune system.

Move More


Set alarms for yourself to get up at least once an hour and walk around for 3- 5 minutes. This works well to use if you are in a sitting desk job. Don't stress about stepping away from your work, it will improve your productivity. This does not need to be exercise but just general body movement

Reduce Stress


Yes, this is easier said than done in this hectic modern world, but it will reap great benefits. Stress is linked to many diseases and health issues and if you can get it under control you can be well on your way to disease prevention.

Take at least 15 minutes a day to sit in quiet and meditate or pray. This has a calming and centering effect and can reduce stress effortlessly. Any other self-care that you can add in like a warm bath, getting a massage, or listening to relaxing music can add on to the benefits.

Quality Sleep


Research is finding that the amount and quality of your sleep is linked directly to your health. It is very important to make sure you are making getting enough sleep a priority. Strive to get at least 7-8 hours of good, quality sleep every night. This may mean readjusting your evening habits to allow getting into bed earlier

Eat More Plants


Begin by making a commitment to make one of your meals every day consist of a salad. It can be a side or even the complete meal. It's a bonus for your body if you can so that for 2 meals every day. Your body will be thanking you.

Something to consider, a lot of dressings contain unwanted ingredients. Make sure if you are going to use a dressing that it is low in carbohydrates and uses healthy fats like coconut oil, avocado, oil or olive oil. AVOID corn, canola, soybean, sunflower, safflower, peanut and any hydrogenated oils. These go rancid and oxidize very easily causing inflammation in the body. My favorite is balsamic vinegar.
