  • Improves Your Circulation Cold water makes your body work harder to maintain its core temperature. Regularly taking cold showers can make our circulatory system more efficient!

  • Help fight off common diseases The shock of cold water in the bloodstream stimulates white blood cells which can help your resistance to common illnesses, like colds and the flu. Amazing right!

  • Increases your alertness Your breath naturally becomes deeper as shock to keep you warm and your heart rate will also increase, releasing a rush of blood through our entire body, giving you a natural dose of energy for the day. A natural coffee hit!

    I challenge you to add at least 2 cold showers into your day this week!

Money Saving Health Hacks

The elephant in the room is that it costs more to buy better quality food. I prefer to look at things holistically rather than in individual silos. Consider the organic produce, or sustainable meat or eggs being used as ‘medicine’ for the body and it puts things in perspective. Less doctors visits, less exploratory scans etc. As a family we save thousands every year staying ‘well’ instead of becoming sick and needing drugs to get well again. Food for thought!

That said, there’s ways to be smarter - here’s some tips to start incorporating a healthier lifestyle.

1. Buy in bulk - hit up your local @thesourcebulkfoods , @terramadreorganics , @wholefoods or similar for all your essentials!

2. Let Farmers & Local markets become your best friends - @Prahranmarket or @vicmarket etc

3. #zerowaste - if there are veggies that are about to turn, make a batch of spagetti sauce, a delicious stirfry or wholesome curry! Of my fave is a frittata. Be creative. @zerowastehomehas some great tips on this topic she’s a guru!
