8 Pillars of a Nutritious Life | A Little Bit Better With Keri Glassman

Uploaded by LivestrongWoman on 31.12.2012

Hey, I'm Keri Glassman here with some quick and simple tips to help you feel just a little
bit better. This is our 100th episode of A Little Bit Better. I hope you've enjoyed it
and learned a whole lot along the way. Today, as a way to further explore the philosophy
that this series is based on, I'm going to review my eight pillars of a nutritious life.
Drink Up: It's no secret that staying hydrated is one of the things I emphasize most, and
with good reason. Proper hydration allows our bodies to function optimally. Eat Empowered:
Nutrient-rich, clean foods benefit your body in too many ways to count. We don't focus
on what you can't eat, we celebrate the foods you can eat. Exercise Steady: No surprise
here. Staying active keeps you fit, helps you sleep, and ensures you have the energy
you need to power through the day. Pamper Thyself: Simple, small indulgences can affect
your attitude and outlook in huge ways. Don't forget to take care of yourself mentally as
well as physically -- go get a massage. Sex Ed: There's a link between libido and health
issues such as weight, and the emotional and mental benefits are immeasurable when it comes
to being intimate with your partner. Sleep Deep: A good night's sleep leads to more energy,
better decision-making, and a happier you (I have a tough time with that one). Stress
Less: Stress is that sneaky little devil that can derail all of your good planning and self-discipline.
Manage your stress, and you'll find everything else falling into place much more easily.
Your World: I feel that you can't be a truly well rounded, healthy person if all your focus
is within. Take some time in your busy life to turn your attention to improving your surroundings.
I've given you a lot to consider over the course of 100 episodes. It might seem daunting,
but you don't need to do it all to see results. If even one of these tips becomes a habit
for you, I'll have accomplished my goal of helping you feel just a little bit better.
Thank you so much for watching.
