Some people are immediately put off the idea of “holistic” health, because they think that it means they’ll have to go out into the woods at midnight, naked, clutching a set of crystals, and begin a primal screaming routine, or something like that.

You could certainly find that kind of approach to holistic health if you are looking for it, but it would be a mistake to assume that was what it was all about.

“Holistic” simply refers, when all is said and done, to an approach to health that considers both the body, and also the mind and emotional self. It’s a way of looking at health that includes lifestyle elements, psychology, and more.

If you’ve been put off exploring holistic health for whatever reason, here are some basic and easy-to-get-into holistic health tips.
Get more fresh air, and remove air pollution from your home

Everyone knows that clean air and plenty of oxygen is good for us. In fact, this is such a universally accepted truism, that high-end spa companies now offer oxygen facial treatments, specifically designed to oxygenate the skin more fully.

Many people may not be aware of it, but there is a phenomenon known as “Sick Building Syndrome” that is poorly understood by science, but that is connected to poor air quality inside a building.

When you spend too much time indoors, you’re naturally at risk of missing out on vital fresh air. But the average indoor environment is also full of mould spores, dust, gases being emitted by appliances, and so on.

Getting outside, getting more fresh air, and investing in air-cleansing plants and maybe a HEPA filter, can do you a world of good.

Go “au naturel”, reduce or cut out the stimulants, and try to get your energy from your nutrition and your sleep

According to some research, around 90% of adults regularly consume caffeine.

That’s not hard to believe, but it is pretty crazy to think about when you consider the fact that caffeine is a psychoactive drug.

There are various proposed health benefits to caffeine and other stimulants. But it’s also the case that these stimulants get you addicted, change the balance of hormones and neurotransmitters in your body, and can massively impact your sleep in a negative way.

Consider cutting out or at least reducing all the stimulants, at least for a couple of months, and try to get your energy instead from nutrition and sleep. Many people report striking benefits from doing this.

De-clutter the various areas of your life in general, and focus on what’s truly essential

De-cluttering” is very popular these days, and it’s not very difficult to see why that might be.

Living in a cluttered environment is naturally unhealthier, since dust, mould, and other pollutants accumulate more easily. Being in a cluttered environment also gets under most of our skin, and causes chronic agitation.

Opt to de-clutter the various areas of your life in general – including how you use your time on digital devices – and focus more on what’s truly essential. The more non-essential clutter you can remove, the healthier and happier you’re likely to feel.
