Establishing a Healthy Routine

Here at Cultivated Wellbeing, we often talk about the importance of nutrition (more recently, SIBO friendly nutrition), but I want to take some time today to talk about something that can play just as big of a role in our overall health. I’m talking about establishing a healthy routine.

Personally, my two non-negotiable practices every morning are a 20 to 30 minute walk with my dog, Dexter, and a warm mug of bone broth.

The walk first thing (even before I brush my teeth) helps me get my blood pumping at the beginning of the day. It’s also a good time for me to do some thinking, listen to a podcast, or even do a walking meditation (I need to get better about incorporating that last one).

Bone broth has been like a miracle for me, playing a major role in helping me solve a twenty-year acne problem. The collagen and gelatin in bone broth, along with the many other micronutrients and vitamins from the veggies boiled alongside the bones (usually chicken feet when I make it myself), have helped me heal my gut and revitalize my complexion. (This is my favorite bone broth to buy.) When I drink bone broth, my skin feels softer, smoother, and I have far fewer breakouts.

For me, having a set amount of things that I do daily has really helped me stay on track with my healthy lifestyle. Maintaining change is incredibly hard for most of us (myself included), but if you can find those few non-negotiable things — the ones that have the greatest impact on your health — and stick to them, you’ll be much more forgiving of yourself if/when other things fall through the cracks from time to time.
