This Is What Will Happen When You Start Having Smoothies Every Day

This Is What Will Happen When You Start Having Smoothies Every Day

The consumption of smoothies and juices is on the rise. All of a sudden, you can find a smoothie bar or juice press on every corner. Even big chains have started getting involved in the liquid revolution.

Drinking smoothies everyday can provide the average person an incredible amount of benefits. Too many people do not get the vitamins and minerals they need on a daily basis. But when you can drink your way to better health with a convenient smoothie, there is little stopping you from experiencing the benefits of proper nutrition.

Here are six things that you will notice after you start drinking smoothies everyday:

1. Your Digestion Will Improve

After you have started to make a healthy smoothie part of your regular routine, you will see improved levels of digestion. Experiencing a better digestive system is one of the main reasons that people include a smoothie in their everyday menu.

However, if you want to experience better movement in your abdomen, you will need to be consuming smoothies that are high in fiber. Smoothies that include plenty of greens, flax, nut butters and probiotics will be better for improving your digestion than a smoothie made only of fruit.

2. You’ll Develop A Strong Immune System

A healthy diet will help you fight disease and build a strong immune system. But you can supplement your healthy diet with daily smoothies. You can include immune system boosting ingredients into any smoothie. These ingredients will help you battle everything from the common cold to a suppressed immune system.

To create a cold-fighting smoothie, make sure you add plenty of Vitamin C. You can get Vitamin C from fruit sources like oranges and berries. Some evidence suggests that probiotics also lends your body immune support in addition to aiding digestion. You can get probiotics from a good brand yogurt.

3. You Will Get Your Five A Day

Most people are so busy with everything that is going on in their lives that it feels impossible to cook a healthy dinner. If it is hard to cook dinner, it is even harder to take the time to count the micronutrients. If you are always on the go, a good smoothie is a great way to ensure that you are getting the nutrition you need.

Getting these nutrients is only to your benefit if you live a busy life. The nutrients you consume allow you to function on the highest level possible.

When you increase the amount of raw fruit and vegetables you consume, you will notice great benefits. Some of these benefits include better sleep, fewer sick days, more energy and a general feeling of well-being.

4. You’ll Feel Hydrated and Full

The combination of added water and water derived from raw food will help you feel both hydrated and full after you consume a smoothie. Hydration is one of the most important facets of human life. Yet, many people remain dehydrated because they struggle to remember to drink water.

Smoothies are a great way to get plenty of water in your system. You even have the added benefit of combing your hydration with a plethora of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.

You might even consider adding coconut water into your smoothie. Coconut water provides extra hydration because it also contains electrolytes. These electrolytes help you rehydrate the same way that sports drinks do – but without the added sugar!

5. You’ll Be Able To Nix the Cravings

Many of the cravings that people experience are phantom cravings. When you feel like you want a big bar of chocolate, what your body is really missing is magnesium. If you want to get your hands on a soda, you may be low in calcium. Of course, many cravings are also due to an intense sugar addiction. Most people do not realize how much they rely on sugar until they try to cut their sugar intake.

A smoothie a day will help you nix all of the cravings you experience throughout the day. When you get all of the nutrients that you need, your body will not go looking for them in other places. When you have an intense craving, you should be reaching for a healthy smoothie instead. You will often find that you feel more satisfied after a smoothie than you do giving in to an unhealthy craving.

The things that you experience when you drink a smoothie every day will leave you feeling like the happiest and healthiest you. Once you experience what it feels like to be well rested, fully hydrated and full of all of the nutrients you need, you may find that smoothies become your new craving.

How to Tap Into the Power of Positivity

How to Tap Into the Power of Positivity

As it appears, the human mind is not capable of not thinking, at least on the subconscious level. Our mind is always occupied by thoughts, whether we want to or not, and they influence our every action.

“Happiness cannot come from without, it comes from within.” – Helen Keller

When we are still children, our thoughts seem to be purely positive. Have you ever been around a 4-year old who doesn’t like a painting he or she drew? I haven’t. Instead, I see glee, exciting and pride in children’s eyes. But as the years go by, we clutter our mind with doubts, fears and self-deprecating thoughts.

Just imagine then how much we limit ourselves in every aspect of our lives if we give negative thoughts too much power! We’ll never go after that job we’ve always wanted because our nay-saying thoughts make us doubt our abilities. We’ll never ask that person we like out on a date because we always think we’re not good enough.

We’ll never risk quitting our job in order to pursue the life and the work of our dreams because we can’t get over our mental barrier that insists we’re too weak, too unimportant and too dumb. We’ll never lose those pounds that risk our health because we believe we’re not capable of pushing our limits. We’ll never be able to fully see our inner potential because we simply don’t dare to question the voices in our head.

But enough is enough! It’s time to stop these limiting beliefs and come to a place of sanity, love and excitement about life, work and ourselves.

So…how exactly are we to achieve that?

It’s not as hard as it may seem; you just have to practice, practice, practice. Here are a few ideas on how you can get started.

1. Learn to substitute every negative thought with a positive one.

Every time a negative thought crawls into your mind, replace it with a positive thought. It’s just like someone writes a phrase you don’t like on a blackboard and then you get up, erase it and write something much more to your liking.

2. See the positive side of every situation, even when you are surrounded by pure negativity.

This one is a bit harder to put into practice, which does not mean it’s impossible.

You can find positivity in everything by mentally holding on to something positive, whether this be family, friends, your faith, nature, someone’s sparkling eyes or whatever other glimmer of beauty. If you seek it, you will find it.

3. At least once a day, take a moment and think of 5 things you are grateful for.

This will lighten your mood and give you some perspective of what is really important in life and how many blessings surround you already.

4. Change the mental images you allow to enter your mind.

How you see yourself and your surroundings make a huge difference to your thinking. It is like watching a DVD that saddens and frustrates you, completely pulling you down. Eject that old DVD, throw it away and insert a new, better, more hopeful one instead.

So, instead of dwelling on dark, negative thoughts, consciously build and focus on positive, light and colorful images, thoughts and situations in your mind a few times a day.

If you are persistent and keep on working on yourself, your mind will automatically reject its negative thoughts and welcome the positive ones.

And remember: You are (or will become) what you think you are. This is reason enough to be proactive about whatever is going on in your head.
