Chemical Free Living, Simple Tips To Boost Your Soul!
1) Stare At Something Blue
A Canadian study found people who were surrounded by blue during a brain taxing task came up with twice as many inventive solutions as people working on a red computer screen.
Scientists believe it’s because we associate blue with water, which makes us feel peaceful and in the right frame of mind to think outside the box.
2) Have A 20 Minute Caffeine Nap
Having a 20 minute caffeine nap can trick your body into thinking it’s had a good nights sleep.
When it comes to increasing your alertness when you are sleep deprived, 2 separate studies proved that drinking a cup of coffee before having a 20 minute nap, is more effective than using either strategy on its own.
The 20 minute snooze recharges your brain while the caffeine has a chance to kick in more quickly when you are in a relaxed state. As we now know, the research and word is out on the massive benefits an afternoon nap has on the human body for longevity and healthy living
3) Sniff Some Fruit
You can try sniffing some fruit to trick your appetite into sticking with a healthy eating plan.
French researchers have confirmed that scents influence our food choices heavily. When people were exposed to the smell of pears before choosing a desert, the majority chose the healthier fruit based option, rather than a delicious chocolate brownie.
Tip of the day, keep a ripe pear handy!
4) Think Positive
To trick your immunity into functioning more effectively, think positively.
You’re less likely to become ill after being exposed to a cold or flu virus when your head is filled with positive emotions US researchers have confirmed. Healthy living is very much about our mental state and the power of our thoughts is far stronger than we are often aware.
5) Flick Through An Old Photo Album
To trick yourself into feeling happier, flick through an old photo album.
Science says that looking at favorite photos of friends and family can boost mood by a around a whopping 11% .
That’s 10% more than the mood enhancing effects of eating chocolate, having a glass of wine, watching TV or even listening to music.
