Love and Health: 10 Love Tips for Electrifying Health

by Todd Dosenberry on · 11 comments

Just one from all the gems

Love is beautiful. Love is essential for electrifying health. Love is essential for life. Without the act of making love, life does not exist. This is beautiful, don't you think?

The following is a list of ten love tips that will allow you to live your life with electrifying health. You want to live as long as possible, right? More importantly, you want to feel alive during your time on beautiful Earth and not suffer from any disease or cancer. This is certainly possible and the following tips will help.

1) Love yourself. You are the most important thing in your life. If you don't take care of yourself then how are you going to help others?

2) Love others. My sister just got married in Key West. The love she shares with her husband is infectious. If you are deeply in love then you will make sure your lover is in grand health. You will make sure you are in grand health as well. You want to be with this person for as long as possible.

3) Make love. Yes, that means have sex. Sex with someone you love. Sex is physical activity. It gets your blood flowing. It's fun. It's play. And, of course, it creates life. Making love with someone you love is one of the world's greatest de-stressors in the world. Excessive stress is one of many players in disease and cancer. You want to avoid both, right? Find a lover and make love with him or her!

4) Love to cook and/or prepare food. Unless you live with a professional chef, make cooking a hobby. If you hate to cook or prepare delicious raw food such as a smoothie then you are more bound to buy packaged junk food at the grocer or to pass through a drive thru. If cooking becomes a hobby, something you love engaging in, then your health will improve. Home cooked meals are almost always better than packaged crap at your local grocer. Start with cooking meat and veggies with lots of spices and herbs and then go from there.

5) Love nature. Where do you spend the majority of your time? If you work, eat, relax and get entertained indoors then you are probably nature deficient. Get outside. I don't care how cold or hot it is. I hate the cold but I still feel outrageously relieved when I step foot outside in the heart of the Winter. It's difficult to explain the incredible phenomenon behind the healing properties of nature. If you are constantly inside and stressed then it's time you spend more time outdoors. Go for a short walk. Take a long hike. Play a sport. Go to the beach. Ski or snowboard. Don't be afraid of the sun. Vitamin D3, aka the Sunshine Vitamin, is essential to all life. A burn is too much but a tan is perfect and protects you from damage. Maybe you need a non human companion to join you on your walk?

6) Love your pet. We own a lovely Boston Terrier. I'm deeply in love. I LOVE taking him for walks. The longer the better. If I never looked forward to putting the leash on him and stepping outside then I would feel stressed every time I had to do this "chore." This would probably lead to bad habits that could lead to poor health.

7) Love movement. Any form of movement is better than no movement at all unless you are completely exhausted or have a strong desire to relax. Every single time I decide to lift my butt off the chair and do a few push-ups, pull-ups, squats, lunges, leg swings, hip extensions, arm circles, etc. I feel alive. My confidence soars. Just a few minutes of this many times throughout the day can do wonders for many folks. Love the movement you are engaging in and feel your health improve in an instant.

8 ) Love sleep. Sleep is important. If we all know this is true, then why do we fail to place an importance on it? We instead watch hours of TV on a daily basis. Ditch the television. You think you love watching the screen when in reality you don't. You love being outdoors. You love to play. You love to sleep. Love it more. Understand that it is vital to your health and be grateful every time you place your head on your pillow and pull the covers over your body. Love the energy you gain from sleep.

9) Love to smile. Are you feeling stressed out? Smile. Try to laugh a little. How are you feeling now? If you actually completed this small task then you should have felt alive for at least that brief moment. The simple act of smiling is one of the simplest, yet one of the most powerful and contagious actions you can take to improve your health. A fake smile won't work unless a real laugh follows. But if you make smiling a habit then it will all of a sudden happen automatically. You will find yourself laughing more. Your happiness, and thus health, will increase at a rapid rate. It may take some practice but it's worth it. It's so simple folks. Just smile! ?

10) It's your turn. Leave a comment below with at least one tip that deals with health and love. What do you love that improves your health? Maybe its giving a hug, playing a sport, meditating or engaging in yoga. Whatever it is, share. I would LOVE to hear your thoughts.

What can I say, I LOVE this post! 🙂

There are so many ways to give and show love. My favorite is self-love! If I don’t love myself, I can’t love anyone else the way they deserve to be loved.

Some of my favorite ways to nurture self-love include saying “I love you” to myself in the mirror, spending an afternoon coloring with crayons, getting a good night’s sleep on a regular basis, asking for help when I need it, and refraining from beating myself up.

Self-love is a favorite topic of mine to write about because when I write about it, I bring it alive in my life in new ways.

Thanks for this awesome post!

Hi Todd,

Great tips for healthy living. I would add meditation as one that I find helpful. I also find journal writing is a wonderful way to let go and express your feelings. You caught me on No. 6 Love your Pet – We own a lovely Boston Ter­rier as well, named Nellie. I’ve had several. They are great dogs; silly, playful, not big barkers and they do show you the joys of life. Thanks for sharing these wonderful tips. Enjoy your BT.

We have been thoroughly enjoying our Boston Terrier for almost 9 years now. Unfortunately he has been struggling as of late. He has suffered a number of seizures (about one dozen) over the past month. We finally decided to begin giving him Phenobarbital to try and minimize or stop the seizures. Today is his second day on the medication.

He is definitely not him normal self but is not too far off from it. He shows no signs of his health severely declining anytime soon but its definitely not up to par as it was during his first 8 years of life.

Enjoy your Boston Terrier while you can!

Hi Todd,

I love sitting outside on a warm evening and having conversation. Or walk around the lake with one of my favorite people. In the winter I do enjoy shoveling the snow when it comes. Not so much when we get 24 inches at one time, but it is still fun.
Love does make the world go around and more we love the happier we will be and healthier.
Thanks for sharing and blessing to you,
Debbie

Nice tips! All that we need is to love ourselves more than we do now. Sometimes, people just don’t love themselves good enough. Too bad, isn’t it?
