Health is wealth

By Dinushka Gunasekara | 20th March 2023

The road to better health can seem long and daunting, but just like any journey, it all starts with taking that first, simple step. 

Creating a healthy lifestyle doesn’t mean running before you walk – tiny, everyday tweaks can go a long way in helping you become your best self. From fixing your sleep to opting for sustainable and organic staples from Organika, Sunshine Coast’s most popular organic grocery store, feeling good on the inside all begins with what you do on the out. 

Stop waiting for the right time to improve your health! Here are nine easy and everyday ways to feel bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. 

1. Drink a glass of water with every meal

It might not look like much, but water is absolutely essential for our bodies to work properly. From transporting nutrients and oxygen through the body to maintaining healthy brain function, a lil H2O can do it all. To make sure you’re drinking enough water every day, have a full glass with each meal – it’ll help you knock back an extra litre a day. Plus, in a Noosa first, Organika offers a natural spring water refill station so you can sip on the good stuff while helping reduce single use plastic.  

2. Shop organic produce from a trusted source

Level up your five a day by opting for fresh, organic fruit and vegetables from the Sunshine Coast’s favourite health food store, Organika. Not only will you be reducing your exposure to harmful chemicals and pesticides, but studies have shown that organic produce may have a higher nutrient content than conventionally grown produce. Make the switch to organic produce and you can expect improved digestion, better immune function, and more sustainable weight loss! 

3. Take your time eating

Practising mindful eating can be a real game changer when it comes to feeling healthier. By sitting down and eating your food slowly, you can focus on what you’re eating, why you’re eating, and how much you’re eating. Chew thoroughly and put your fork down between bites – this will give your brain enough time to realise when you’re full, fueled up, and ready to push the plate away.

4. Up your step count

Moving your body is key to unlocking an array of health benefits and hitting 10,000 steps a day is easy with a few simple… well, steps. Take the stairs rather than the escalator whenever possible, go for a stroll around the block in your lunch break, and park at the opposite end of the car park to lengthen your walk. Scheduled a morning catch up with a friend? Meet a little earlier and go for a walk before rewarding yourself with brekky. 

5. Sleep at the same time every day

A regular sleep schedule will train your body’s internal clock to fall asleep faster, helping you maximise every minute of those zzz’s. It also helps to avoid technology one hour before bed – yes, that means catching up on MAFS can wait! Devices emit a blue light which will trick your brain to think it’s daytime and might make you struggle to fall asleep.  Instead, read a book, stretch, or meditate to get in the zone for a deep sleep. 

6. Stack your habits

Getting a healthy habit to stick can often be a challenge, so how about doubling down on a habit you already have? Stacking involves identifying an existing habit then incorporating a new behaviour you want to get in the habit of on top. For example, let’s say you want to get in the habit of working out daily. Can’t go a day without your morning coffee? Try making exercise a part of your caffeine hit, so the morning coffee will act as the cut to start your habit of working out. 

7. Always keep healthy snacks at reach

Did you know eating small meals throughout the day can help keep your metabolism on track? Of course, eating the right things is also important so curb those hunger pangs with healthy snacks from Organika. Organic snacks are free of artificial ingredients and preservatives, meaning you can munch away without the guilt! 

8. Take a snap of your meal

You read that right – posting your feast on Instagram can actually help you on the hunt for health! It’s all about reminding you how satisfying your last meal was, which can lead to eating less next time you sit down and dig in. A photo of your meal will also help you pay attention to your intake of the day. 

9. Shop smart

Don’t let the bad stuff sneak their way into your home! Write a list and stick to it. Shop on a full stomach to avoid impulse buys. And, most importantly, opt for stores with lots of produce and healthy options available, like Organika, so you can conveniently and efficiently find what’s good for you.  

Health is wealth and you’ll be feeling like a million bucks when you shop at Organika here.
