Prevention is always better than the cure.
Stomach: Your stomach appreciates a good breakfast, as it sets the tone for the day. Skipping breakfast can leave it anxious and uneasy, impacting your overall digestion.
Kidneys: Hydration is key! Ensure you drink at least 10 glasses of water in 24 hours to keep your kidneys happy and functioning optimally. Unfortunately, alcohol does not fit into this category though it does consist a high percentage of water!
Gallbladder: Give your gallbladder a break by maintaining a regular sleep schedule. Going to sleep before 23:00 and waking up at sunrise helps support its proper function.
Small Intestines: Be kind to your small intestines by avoiding cold and overdue foods. Opt for fresh and well-cooked meals to ensure smooth digestion.
Colon: Your colon prefers moderation. Consuming excessive fried and spicy foods can make it uneasy. Balance is the key to a happy colon.
Lungs: Keep your lungs in the pink of health by avoiding inhaling smoke, whether it’s from cigarettes or polluted air. Breathe in fresh air to keep them strong.
Liver: Treat your liver kindly by limiting heavy fried foods, junk, and fast food. Alcohol in moderation is essential for maintaining a healthy liver. Yep, those bars do not need to be frequented daily, but it is fun, is it not.
Heart: Protect your heart by being mindful of your salt and cholesterol intake. A heart-healthy diet is vital to keep this VERY IMPORTANT organ strong.
Pancreas: Too much sugar can stress your pancreas. Consume sweets in moderation to avoid putting undue pressure on this crucial organ. Yep, those yummy Thai deserts, so delicious and yet, can be a little destructive.
Eyes: Show some love to your eyes by avoiding prolonged exposure to screens in the dark. Take breaks, blink often, and maintain good lighting to protect your vision.
Brain: Nurture your mental well-being by steering clear of negative thoughts. A positive mindset contributes to a healthy brain and overall well-being.
Engaging in regular exercise works wonders for the body, mind, and soul.
