Are you looking to boost your happiness and well-being? Join naturopath Jeff Butterworth and Olympian Lisa Curry as they unveil 10 effective strategies for achieving a healthier and happier life.


1. BREATHE:. Our breath controls our mood and the speed of our breath is dictated by our stress levels. Practicing regular breathwork calms the nervous system which leads to a sense of calmness and happiness.


2. COLD EXPOSURE: .This is becoming increasingly popular because the sudden exposure to cold releases feel-good hormones, making you not only feel calmer and happier but also reducing inflammation and improving immunity.


3. EXERCISE: Exercise is one of the most important pillars of well-being. It reduces stress, releases endorphins, and helps you sleep better. 


4. SLEEP: This is literally the most important aspect of your health that you need to consider. Without sufficient, good-quality sleep your body will not heal itself and goes into a state of stress until it gets enough sleep. This can be years for many people. A good night’s sleep leads to balanced hormones and a sense of happiness.


5. HEALTHY DIET:. Foods not only have a significant effect on our overall well-being but also influence our mood and energy levels. Most foods that make us feel good in the short term, like sugar and alcohol, have long-term consequences on our mood and happiness.


6. YOGA: It is a really simple, yet profound activity that works in breathwork, but is also gentle exercise. Stretching releases stress and emotions leaving you feeling lighter and happier after a good yoga session.

7. BACK TO NATURE: Nature has a calming effect on your nervous system and our bodies have been designed to interact with nature. Take off your shoes, go for a swim, and feel the effect on your mood.


8, RECONNECT WITH COMMUNITY: We are social creatures, and building a positive and engaging community around you can give you a sense of belonging and purpose, one of the most important elements of a healthy and happy life.


9. BALANCE YOUR HORMONES: Hormones are powerful modulators of mood. All of the above actions affect our hormones and there are natural tools like Happy Hormones to bring back your hormones into alignment.


10. DISCONNECT: Our modern world can be quite overstimulating and consequently has negative effects on our health and happiness. Take time to disconnect from technology, read a book, go for a walk, and chat with a friend.
