Having a more well-rounded view of life and being more aware of your emotions and actions leads to a wholly improved lifestyle. Not only can a holistic viewpoint improve your mental health, but your physical wellbeing, too. As awareness of mental health issues grows, holistic ideals are becoming more common, even with celebrities. A holistic health lifestyle means being more in-tune with your body and mind and how you impact the world around you. Here are some suggestions on how you can integrate more holistic ideas into your days.
Look after your body with healthy eating
Naturally, healthy eating isn’t just about being more holistic – you should always be aiming to lead a healthy lifestyle in regards to what you eat and what you put into your body. However, having a more holistic approach to what you eat holds more focus on nurturing and caring for your body, as well as being aware of how important your body is to you.
Try nourishing your body with more clean and organic foods. You could also integrate other elements into your lifestyle to help eliminate toxins from your body, such as the occasional cup of green tea, ensuring you drink an adequate amount of water and introducing other organic and holistic remedies. CBD oil is fast becoming a go-to option for alternative remedies, such as from Hemplix.
Holistic health lifestyle? Create positive energy
You have full control over how you choose to react to things in your life, and how you choose to treat others. While it’s perfectly natural to allow yourself to be angry and upset sometimes, it’s also important to take a step back and understand when anger and stress could be avoided by your own efforts and turned into something different.
Try and replace negative energy for positive energy wherever you can. It can be as simple as smiling at someone, being there for a friend, or deciding not to let something which you cannot change negatively affect you.
Be in the moment and try to enjoy every second
Mindfulness plays a huge part in a healthy, positive outlook. Instead of worrying about the future or impatiently waiting for important milestones to happen, bring your focus on to the everyday details, such as:
- Your breathing patterns
- Relax your mind
- Be aware of the day’s simple pleasures
- Find happiness in the small moments
In a busy daily life, it’s easy to believe you simply have no time for the things you enjoy, but by changing your outlook on certain aspects. Strive to enjoy simple ideas rather than battling a chaotic atmosphere.
A final way to embrace a holistic health lifestyle is to make connections
It’s important to eliminate any bad energy from your life, and this includes people who bring you down. Even if these individuals have long been considered friends or loved ones, if all they do is upset you or cause friction, then they shouldn’t be in your life.
Open your mind to more positive people instead, and reach out to other like-minded individuals who share a holistic health lifestyle. This could be through a local yoga group or even an online forum dedicated to a more positive lifestyle.

Positivity indeed does make for a healthy life
You said that so well ~ Thanks!
Excellent post! I’m really putting forth more effort to have a holistic view of health so this is perfect! First, I’ve transitioned to a plant-based diet. I’ve also committed myself to exercising 6 days a week. Sticking with this has been a challenge over the years but I keep focusing on the benefits. I need to lower my cholesterol and A1C levels. Keeping that ahead of me instead of focusing on getting 6 pack abs has helped me to stay motivated. Lastly, I’m taking time for self-care and spiritual activities. A warm long bath is required at least once a week (with an exfoliating face mask ) and regular bible reading. Bible reading is very calming and I feel closer to God when I do it regularly. It fills me with hope that the world will one day be a better place and that alone is helping me to be less stressed. Thanks again for this post! Now all I need to do is participate in more social activities.
It sounds like you are on a wonderful path to being at your best, and that’s beautiful to read about in your comment, Heather Jo!
Thanks so much!
My big take-away from this post is about surrounding yourself with like-minded people. It certainly helps boost the holistic lifestyle instead of being around those who bring you down.
Exactly, Lisa! We are all the better for the positive spirits around us xx
Your support here is wonderful, Pooja
Christy great post, thank you very much :)
Your comment is so appreciated!
Fantastic read! I’m so grateful to have found your blog 🙏🏻 finding likeminded people is always a blessing. I’ve just started my journey into energy healing and loving all the positivity 🧘🏼♀️🌀🌸💎
Thank YOU for being here!
Great advice, Christy! I’ve found that just stepping away from the negative attitudes of family and coworkers to see the positive in a situation can help me feel much better about life in general, without being bogged down by anger/frustration/helplessness over something I can’t directly control.
Taking that breathing time can really help center us, that’s for sure. Thanks for sharing your strategy, Amy xx
Love this post and love YOU! I work at a school where its cornerstone is holistic education. I love how you present this and it’s all about the good energy, honoring your body, and eating well. I hope you have a wonderful week sweet friend! xo
You are a shining example of the beauty of holistic health, Cyndi. Hugs, many hugs xo
When we keep healthy things going into our minds, and bodies, we really are setting ourselves up to “WANT” to do awesome things for others!! And that’s what this temporary assignment ( Life ), is all about! Trying to do a little something for your fellow guy and/or gal!!!
Yes!! Let’s make the most of our days here. Great comment.
Worth read it….
Glad to hear it!
I like the spirit of this post, Christy. Nice one!
I’ve been eliminating toxic people inside my periphery and seeking positive ones this year. Your post reassures me I ‘m doing the right thing.
That’s an excellent approach you’re taking, Susan. And I’m pleased this post helped verify that for you xx
Excellent post Christy! As you know, I’m a big fan of whole living :) Each and every point you’ve brought up here will definitely encourage us to drop the things in our lives that no longer serve us well and adopt what does.
Toxic people are such a big one. Even if it’s family. So often, those closest to us are the ones who fail to be there for us. It’s sad but it’s reality. Our mental health depends on letting their negative mess go. We often feel guilty for doing it but we shouldn’t. We can’t move forward if someone near us is constantly grabbing us by the shirt trying to pull us down with ’em!
I also love the mindfulness idea. Our stinkin’ thinkin’ can get us in a whole world of hurt if we allow it. Our minds run amok with all the ‘what if’ scenarios. It’s a never ending rabbit hole of depression, self doubt and anxiety. Yikes! 😲 When we feel down or incapable of doing something, a good place to start is being aware of what we’re thinking. Usually we can always find the solution to our problem right there!
All my love to you dear Christy. You’re still awesome! Always will be :) 💕 ~ Holly
Those “what if” scenarios can be big rabbit holes to fall into, that’s for sure Holly! It sounds like you have a great understanding of positive approaches to the self, particularly from a holistic point of view. Which makes me happy :) Aw, you’re pretty great yourself!!
Fantastic post, Christy! Thanks for sharing, my friend. :)
