Hi, this is Dr. Mariza, and I’m going be talking to you about my best daily habits for living a high-vitality life. Often times, people want to know my specific daily habits and protocols for living an abundant, healthy, and energetic life. Now, what I want to do is tell you that these habits aren’t necessarily something that you’re going to start all at once. I will tell you, in my own personal experience, it took several years to get to this place where I am doing things on a day-to-day basis. What I have learned working with thousands of people is that when we create habits every single day, it absolutely dictates the life that we’re going to live later.
And what I want for you is a life that is rich, full of energy, and full of vitality. So what I want to do is start with my morning routine. We’re actually going to focus on my entire day, but specifically the morning, because that is where I set the tone of the day.
So when I get up, one of the first things I do, besides brushing my teeth, is using essential oils. Now, essential oils are wonderful for boosting mood, elevating energy, and just feeling amazing. Now, two of my favorite oils to do this with is peppermint and wild orange. I usually just breathe them in or maybe even lick them and it just wakes me up instantaneously, which I love.
Next, I head on into the kitchen, and I start a couple of different things. One, I want to make sure that I have enough water prepped for the day, because it’s important to stay hydrated. Actually, 70% of people in this country are chronically dehydrated, and it leads to chronic issues down the line, so staying hydrated is super important.
Now, I love water infusions. I love to dress up my water with fruits, herbs, vegetables, and essential oils. So normally, I literally prepare those a couple of days in advance, so that I can put those into a water jug or a glass water bottle to take with me on the road, and then I just refill it throughout the day.
Next, I make green smoothies. Now, you should know that I’ve been a green smoothie girl for over seven years, and I love green smoothies. The reason why I love it: it’s the fastest food that I can make in my kitchen that delivers the most nutrient-dense foods that I’m going to eat for the rest of the day. Normally, a quart green smoothie, this is actually a quart jar right here, a quart green smoothie delivers anywhere between 10 to even 15 servings of fruits and vegetables into the body, which is super important. Because we’re actually pretty nutrient deficient here in the United States, so I want to make sure that everyone’s getting enough fruits and vegetables.
Now, I’ve been perfecting green smoothies for years, but I will tell you that I absolutely love the way they taste. One of the things that I use as a flavor enhancer is my favorite wild orange and lemon oils. They just make the smoothie taste even better and provide immune system and cleansing benefits, so those green smoothies typically consist of greens, fruits, vegetables, herbs, essential oils, sprouted flax seed, and a good vegan-based protein. Those are typically what my green smoothie consist of.
Also, a great daily habit that I do every single day is positively journal and meditate. I think it’s super important to get the brain and body focused for the day, and there’s no better way to do that than resetting and creating abundance in the mind. So positively journaling or meditation usually takes me about 15 to 20 minutes every single day. I also love to use essential oils during this practice, because it helps to elevate that experience even more.
Next, exercise is absolutely important. Now, I will tell you that I mix up exercise. Sometimes it’s pilates. Sometimes it’s yoga. Sometimes it’s boot camp or even just running stairs. I truly believe that you should get in where you fit in, and do something that you love, even if it’s just walking 30 minutes a day. Normally, I work out five to six days a week for at least 30 minutes to an hour. Most of the things that I do is attend classes, because I find it’s much easier to work out when someone is telling me what to do than to even self-motivate myself. But I always make sure that I have water and oils on hand, especially peppermint oil, because it’s such a great energy booster, and it’s wonderful for the muscles.
Next, throughout the day, it depends on what’s going on, how busy I am or whatever I’m doing, I try to eat super healthy foods for lunch and dinner. I focus again on plant-based foods, lots of good healthy fats like coconut oil, avocados, olive oil. I also take a lot of supplements as well. So supplements are super important, because I know that even eating a whole food diet, I don’t always necessarily get all of the best nutrition. I take one specific supplement that’s deigned to create energy in the body, so it boosts mitochondrial levels and helps to balance cortisol and hormone levels. And this is like my energy booster.
But I also take a really powerful multivitamin, a vegan-based omega, and some really great vital nutrients and antioxidants. So actually, I don’t take a lot of supplements, but I do take some core supplements to ensure that my body is working throughout the day. I normally do this at breakfast and at dinner.
Then as I’m getting closer to nighttime, I’m winding down, making dinner, but I also want to make sure that we’re creating a stress-free environment. Not to say that there’s a lot of stress going on in my home, but sometimes days are long or they’re pretty rigorous, so I want to make sure that we set the tone for a calming night. I love diffusing oils for that experience. Usually, I’m diffusing lavender or bergamot, usually it’s roman chamomile or geranium, maybe even clary sage. Those are just some of my favorite calming oils. They smell incredible, and they set the tone for the night.
It’s really nice to just be able to sit down and have conversations with family, or maybe even read a book. I have a really phenomenal reading list right now that I’m absolutely loving. Some of them are personal development books. Some of them are fictional. It just depends on my mood.
And then also you should know that all of my routines consist of nontoxic options, so I typically use nontoxic hair products, personal skin products, and makeup. Just to give you an idea, often times, a lot of those things are rooted with coconut oil, and I can make a lot of them from scratch. Now, normally, I’m not a do-it-yourself girl, but when it comes to cleansers and personal care products, I want to make sure that we reduce our toxic load, so that we’re able to heal and keep that high vitality.
So those are basically my daily habits in a nutshell. I know that some of them sound like they may take some time, but I absolutely believe that over time, they just become your routine as well, and I also believe that health does take time and energy to get it right.
