7 Ways to Skyrocket your Health & Well-being Fast

  1. No, it’s not the most important meal of the day.

Just like us, our digestive system needs a break from time to time.

Make it a habit of leaving a window of at least twelve hours between your last meal in the evening and your first meal in the morning to boost your well-being.

Once to twice a week schedule skip breakfast and all food until lunchtime. An extended food break will give your body and digestion a much-needed break to clean and prepare.

You may want to make sure that you plan your two-morning fasts for when your brain doesn’t need to be working at high speed. Just like our muscles, the brain needs fuel to function at peak performance. So don’t plan to fast the morning of a big presentation or a test.

Drink a liter of water over the course of the morning and enjoy non-sugar teas and coffee. Add in an early morning walk and detox yoga flow to wring toxins out of your system and clear your body. At lunchtime don’t overcompensate with fatty or sugary foods.

Instead, opt for fiber and nutrient-rich vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins.

Add in an indulgence after lunch or later in the afternoon and savor every bite. Fasting isn’t about losing weight, but about optimizing your digestion and clearing your body of toxins.

  1. Smoothie Me Right

A detox smoothie can be just what you need to give your health and well-being a boost fast. The key is not just what you put in the smoothie, as much as what you leave out. Sugar, sweeteners, and bananas are on the no list for your detox smoothie.

A smoothie rich in vitamin C floods your digestion with antioxidants that help in detoxification and boost immunity. Greens such as spinach, kale, arugula, or beet greens are nutrient-rich and powerhouses at heavy metal detox work in your body.

Chia and flax seeds are rich in omega three fats that reduce inflammation and give your skin and hair a healthy glow while aiding in detoxification.

Probiotics are well known to benefit your health and improve your digestion. If you are lactose intolerant or hate the taste of yogurt, you can add a probiotic powder to your smoothie instead, but you will be forgoing the healthy source of protein.


1 cup of Blueberries

a handful of clean spinach leaves and kale

an orange

a kiwi

the juice of a lemon

1 cup of probiotic plain, unsweetened yogurt

1teaspoon of chia seeds

1 teaspoon of flaxseeds.

You can also add in chlorella powder, which is a single-celled green algae, to your smoothie to bind with heavy metals and toxins and enables them to be flushed from your body.

  1. Willpower Muscle Builder

Did you know you can build your willpower? Try this for yourself. Add a jump into a cold shower into your daily schedule and discover how counting to three and then taking the plunge transfers as a GO tactic in other areas of your life.

You will not only experience a jump in energy, circulation, and good mood by jumping in icy water. You will be training yourself to respond to 1,2,3, GO! You can then use this brain programming when you want to get yourself out of bed, start working on that report you’ve been dreading or drag yourself away from the TV.

Building willpower will give you a boost in confidence, which will improve your sense of well-being and efficacy.

  1. Hate them? Eat Them Anyway

Kale, brussels sprouts, cauliflower, broccoli, and cabbage all have the power to aid your body in detoxing your body and improving your digestion. If you hate them, then eat them anyway. Consider them medicine for your body and swallow them down, without the spoonful of sugar.

  1. Sugar Cleanse

Try eliminating all sugar from your diet two days a week. Giving up sugar forever can set you up for instant failure. Temptations are everywhere, holidays and special events almost always include dessert, and it can cause you to throw up your hands and shout ‘I give up!’ or ‘I’ll take all dozen donuts please.’

Your two-day sugar cleanse could even reduce your overall consumption of sugar for the rest of the week.

Just like alcohol, we can become resistant to the sweetness. Take a break from sugar for two days a week, and you will readjust your sweet perception. Fruit will taste sweeter. You may even find sugary drinks, and sugar-saturated foods taste overly sweetened and eat less or pass.

A two-day a week sugar cleanse is feasible. You give your body the opportunity to take a break from the spikes and dips in blood sugar and enable your digestion to detox better. Those power greens you are eating will be more powerful without the sugar in your gut causing inflammation and disturbing your healthy bacteria balance.
