In the realm of healthy living, it has always been expressed that having a daily routine can work wonders.


For the New Year I want to give you a personalized guide that will help you make the most of your day.

Picture it as a daily adventure, where each step is a deliberate choice to enhance your vitality and mindfulness.





Next, you'll see a break down of some simple principles to get you started on this wellness journey for the New Year of 2024. Are you ready? Good!

Lets go!


 

The Unrecognized Supplement

Sleep:


One often-overlooked but vital supplement is sleep.


In our fast-paced lives, quality sleep is the elusive elixir that many are missing.



What's causing this?



  • The new LED lighting

  • The blue light from our TV's, computers, cell phones, & street lights

  • The bombardment of unseen Wi-Fi and radio frequencies

  • Stress (Mental, Emotional, Physical)

  • Depression

  • Pain

  • Lack of exercise

  • Poor Diet

  • Sleep apnea

  • AND STAYING UP PAST 10AM!



You can now see why I recognize sleep as the number 1 supplement,

And I know most of my patients are not getting enough of it.



Adequate, restful sleep is not just a necessity but a powerful contributor to overall health, affecting everything from:


  1. cognitive function

  2. hormones

  3. to muscle/organ repair

  4. Brain Detox

  5. Emotional well-being


I believe if it's possible to prioritize and optimize your sleep patterns, you can experience a transformation that unlocks a healthier, more vibrant life.




*TIP: Sleep Smart



Did you know the significance of your sleep position extends beyond mere comfort?


Yep! It directly impacts your overall well-being.


Here's how👇🏻


If you often prefer to sleep on the left side, be mindful of its potential to generate excess heat within your body.


Switching to the right side can be beneficial, especially if you're dealing with inflammation.


On the flip side, sleeping on the left is advantageous for individuals with a tendency for cold spells, excess phlegm, or concerns related to weight management.



An early bedtime is your ticket to a great next day.


 

Rise and Shine:





All the health experts and biohackers today are saying,


"Early mornings serve as the gateway to a day filled with vigor and success."

What does this look like? Where do you start?


  1. First attend to nature's call, and give your teeth and mouth a thorough cleaning.

  2. Following this, turn your attention to your tongue. Examining your tongue can reveal potential changes in various organs. Utilize a silver or copper scraper to delicately cleanse your tongue, providing both a refreshing massage to the tongue and a beneficial touch to the internal organs connected to its diverse areas.

  3. Post-examination, enhance your internal cleansing by sipping on a glass of warm water. This will effectively purify your kidneys and large intestine from the night before.

 

Freshen Up:


How about indulging in a soothing body massage with warm oil if possible, and then a rejuvenating shower?


This practice not only invigorates your senses but also contributes to a heightened state of alertness!


If you have dry skin or find that you have a very scattered mind, this practice every morning will make a great transformation to your body.

Meditation:


I've heard it plenty of times; " I can't do it", "It's too hard', "I can't stop thinking."


But if you got enough sleep, cleansed your mouth, did your warm oil massage, and slipped into comfortable attire; I'd guarantee that you could sit in peace for 10 - 15min. During this time you can incorporate breathing exercises to reset your mind and purify your system through your lungs.


I wrote about the very specia ;breathing technique Navy Seals use called -- Square Breathing.

You can find a simple tool I included in that post to be super helpful in following a rhythm.

Eat Right:



Finally, after your morning routine, dive into a healthy breakfast.

You're probably thinking, "So John, what is healthy?"


At this point I'll let you decide.


These days diet is a complex issue for everyone and sometimes becomes a sensitive and debatable topic.



From my accumulated knowledge over the years, I typically steer clear of conversations about it, much like how I prefer to avoid delving into discussions about politics and religion.

However, you do want to aim to have lunch before noon and dinner before the sun goes down.


It's a simple rule that keeps your body in sync with its natural rhythms.

Keep in mind, these are just general tips, and feel free to adjust them to fit your own preferences and needs.
