Relatively New-But-Not-So-New Things That People Are Doing to Improve Their Health

By Mikkie Mills


Microgreens are the juvenile plants of herbs and vegetables. Such herbs vegetables include but are not limited to peas, basil, radishes, broccoli, celery and kale. Microgreens have tiny leaves and frequently have color to them. The difference between a microgreen and a sprout is that a sprout is about the size of a pea and has no leaves. Microgreens have been found to have 40 times more vitamins and minerals than the products of regular, mature plants. It is not difficult to eat microgreens. You can eat them by themselves or put them into various kinds of dishes. Microgreens are great for those who want to live a healthier lifestyle due to their high concentrations of good nutrients.


Within the past decade, meditation has seen an explosion of popularity. There are many articles, books and classes that pertain to meditation. One may ask what the purpose of meditation is, since it does not directly concern physical activity or eating correctly. The purpose of meditation is to calm down so that one can live more in the moment, enjoy every moment, have a better quality of life and have a clearer mind. Meditation is a great way to deal with stress. It is a much better way to deal with stress than partaking in viceful behavior and starting drama with loved ones. If you partake in meditation, you may find that you are able to deal with other things in your life much better. Being able to deal with life will go full circle and come back to you in the form of your health being better.

Two large parts of meditation are breathing and being mindful. Our breathe is the one, grounding thing that helps us to focus, as well as to clearly think. Being mindful has to do with thinking about everything around you and how you currently feel. It involves thinking about the quality and meaning of all of these observations.

Partake in a Personal Improvement Plan

Another good idea when it comes to taking care of yourself is to take part in a given plan that has been laid out specifically to help you attain your goal in a certain amount of time. Le-Vel Thrive is an 8 week plan tailored to each individual. It is meant to help people attain their fitness and personal goals. There are also many other lessons, classes and systems that have been designed to help people attain good results within a certain time ranges.

Ask Yourself

As you make observations, ask yourself profound, yet simple, questions about your feelings and the conditions around you. For example, a good question might be, “What do I like about this moment?” Another good question might be, “What am I thankful for, and why?” Seeing the beauty in simple things and being thankful for what you have in life are the first steps to being happier and healthier.

Plant-Based Oils

A lot of people are set in their ways when it comes to cooking with and consuming butter. There are many conflicting studies and opinions, but butter is generally seen as something that is not heart healthy. If you are an avid butter eater, don’t panic at the thought of giving up your butter or eating less of it; there are plenty of great-tasting, plant-based oils. Each plant oil tastes different. If you do not like one, you can try another. Some of the amazing oils that you can try are olive oil, grapeseed oil, peanut oil, vegetable oil, avocado oil and walnut oil. Each oil can make the same dish taste drastically different. It is fun to experiment with different oils. You may find that one oil makes a dish taste the best that it has ever tasted, while another oil makes that same dish taste off and unappealing.
