These are 6 elements I believe are critical to a happy life and once these are established within your behavioural playbook you will experience a new found health and happiness.
- Structured Water
- Nutrient Dense Foods
- Constant Movement
What is Hexagonal Structured Water?
Water is a network of hydrogen-bonded molecules. It can form numerous structures, depending on how the individual molecules bond together. The most recent scientific findings indicate that biological organisms prefer the six-sided(hexagonal) ring-structure, found naturally in snow water.
This Hexagonal Water forms a liquid crystalline lattice that is involved in cellular communication, intracellular water movement, enzyme function and many other metabolic processes. The amount of Hexagonal Water in the body has been correlated with ageing. It has also been found to form the initial layer of water surrounding healthy cells. On the other hand, unorganised water, has been described surrounding diseased and abnormal cells.
Hexagonal Water is composed of six individual molecules of water, held together by common hydrogen bonds. This unique water structure is capable of rapid penetration within the cells of the body. Most tap water and bottled water is composed of large water conglomerates which are too large to move freely into the cells. It must be re-structured within the body to penetrate the cells (a time-consuming and energy-consuming process).
The importance of drinking Hexagonal Water (Dehydration – linked to disease)
Dehydration is the number one cause of stress in the human body. It has been linked with heartburn, headaches, angina pain, asthma, colitis, diabetes, peptic ulcer pain, high blood pressure, low back pain, blood cholesterol and many other symptoms.
In fact, it is not just the lack of water, but the lack of hexagonally-structured water which is now being correlated with disease. The most recent scientific findings indicate that water forms 3 distinct layers surrounding healthy cells. In healthy tissues, hexagonal water is closely associated with cell membranes, forming the first layer. On the other hand, the initial layer surrounding diseased cells is unorganised water. Hexagonally – structured water is also found in close association with healthy, normal DNA, while abnormal DNA is associated with unorganized water.
Drinking Structured Water is one of the easiest and best ways to overcome chronic dehydration and protect your body from the symptoms of disease and premature ageing.
Within minutes, Structured Water moves into the cells, taking nutrients and expelling metabolic wastes in a much more efficient manner.
Structured Water is hexagonally-structured – composed of six individual molecules of water, held together by common hydrogen bonds. This unique water structure is capable of rapid penetration within the cells of your body. Hexagonal water has been scientifically documented to improve hydration, nutrient delivery, waste removal, cellular communication and metabolic efficiency.
Structured Water contains more oxygen.
Structured water is living water.
● Supports weight-loss
● Hexagonally structured

● Enhances hydration
● Improves athletic
Have you ever wondered why snowflakes are always six-sided?
Although a snowflake is fundamentally different than Hexagonal Water (A snowflake contains billions of hexagonal water molecules) it is a reflection of the specific hexagonal structure that water assumes as it freezes. Snowflakes are formed as super-cooled water condenses around particulate matter in the atmosphere.
Super-cooled water is nearly 100% hexagonally structured. It is able to maintain a liquid state, in the upper atmosphere – even at temperatures well below freezing. As this super-cooled Hexagonal Water freezes, it naturally assumes a shape which reflects the hexagonal unit from which it is made.
To get structured water you either need a mountain stream or you will need to a reverse osmosis filter, distiller and then a vitaliser.
It is a 3 part process if you do it at home and I prepare my drinking water everyday this way and it is amazing.
The key to life itself at a cellular level is right here.
NUTRIENT DENSE FOODS
Eat Cleaner. Not Less.
When it comes to body transformation, I think most people’s thought process is to think about losing kilos
While kilos are part of the process, the greatest success with weight loss and overall shift in body composition (losing fat and gaining muscle) comes when we lose fat and not just weight or kilos.
Would you feel good about losing weight in the form of water and muscle tissue (in other words, becoming dehydrated and less “toned”)?
I’d hope you’d say absolutely not!
Sadly, this is often what happens when people go about losing weight the wrong way, and it’s how many non-credible websites advertise their “secret” to losing weight.
Food = Energy!
Macronutrients. Macronutrients are nutrients that provide calories or energy. These include carbohydrate, protein and fat – all nutrients we need in our diet but in varying quantities and %.
It’s important “where” our energy (calories) comes from, especially when we’re talking about losing fat. The days of recommending low-calorie diets, low-fat or no-fat diets, sugar-free options, etc. are luckily starting to dwindle, although that messaging is still very prevalent in some commercial weight loss kits and product advertising.
The fact is, research again and again affirms the effectiveness of meal plans that offer a higher protein, lower carbohydrate, higher fibre, and healthy fat profile.
This way of eating may seem backwards for many, as this is the opposite of what we’ve been told to do for decades. When we shift our focus to the types of foods that we’re eating rather than how many calories we consume, however, eating healthy all of a sudden becomes much easier.
Just rate the quality of the foods you eat first.
We’re most familiar with this nutrient for building muscle.
Protein actually burns more calories in comparison to carbs and fat for our bodies to break down and utilise. In addition, it digests more slowly than carbohydrates and serves as a great buffer for blood sugar fluctuations.
People who focus on lowering their calorie intake usually do not consume adequate protein amounts and find themselves at a lower body weight with higher body fat percentage.
Incorporate protein at every meal and snack!
A serving about the size of your palm is a good measure.
Don’t fear healthy fats!
Fats found naturally in animal and plant sources should be a part of your diet on a daily basis. Forget the “no-fat” or “low-fat” mantra. Fat serves as a protective mechanism in our bodies.
Every cell is encased with a membrane of fat, including brain cells. In truth, nearly 60% of your brain is fat!
Be sure you limit your intake of starchy, sugary foods. Otherwise your body will not burn its fat stores efficiently. Our bodies are built to first utilise our sugar (carbohydrate) stores, as it is a quick energy source – digesting and burning rapidly.
Fat, on the other hand, is digested and utilised more slowly. Therefore, what do you think happens when we have a large quantity of sugar in our systems to burn?
We’re unable to burn the fat stores for energy!
I bet you’ll be less likely to reach for that sweet treat next time if you can remember that doing so will turn off your body’s ability to burn its fat stores.
A high-fat AND high-carbohydrate diet can spell disaster, so be sure to be dialled into a higher-protein, higher-fibre diet before thinking you can load spoonfuls of butter on those veggies. A great rule of thumb is to include a healthy fat portion about the size of your thumb at each meal.
Carbohydrate is a big word for sugar (or glucose). It’s a type of molecule that gets broken down in our bodies to become sugar. Note: in order for our bodies to use this sugar, they need insulin. Insulin allows sugar to enter our cells, while simultaneously preventing fat cells from releasing fat for energy.
Put simply, anytime we eat sugar, we tell our bodies to stop burning fat.
Now repeat that last sentence and let it soak in….
Our bodies need sugar in order to function, however where we go wrong is the amount and the type that we consume.
Keep it simple – vegetables, fruits and true whole-grains are great sources of carbohydrate that should be incorporated into our day.
Aim for half of your plate being comprised of veggies, and use fruit and true whole grains as a small side serving or part of a snack.
Real foods help our bodies communicate better.
Nutrient-dense foods or real foods, as we like to call them, are natural for our bodies to digest and utilise. They are packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and other essential nutrients we need to function (hence they’re being “nutrient-dense”).
It’s mind-blowing sometimes to think about all of the processes that our bodies complete constantly just to keep us functioning. If you were to look at those reactions and pathways on a cellular level, you’d notice a common theme: vitamins and minerals are required in order for them to happen.
Simply put, low levels of even just one nutrient (e.g. vitamin B6) can impact your energy, blood-sugar levels, hunger levels, sleep pattern, irritability, cravings and more!
One last example of how a nutrient-dense diet helps with proper “communication” within the body relates to a hormone called leptin. This hormone, although not commonly well-known, is critical for your fat loss efforts as it communicates between your digestive tract and brain to “tell” you that you’re full!
Studies show leptin is elevated in many obese individuals, leading to leptin resistance. In other words, the body keeps secreting the hormone to say “I’m full! Stop eating!” Yet, the brain isn’t hearing that message.
- Eat mostly veggies – primarily the colourful, non-starchy kind because they require the LEAST amount of insulin to be released (versus starchy veggies like potatoes). Remember, lowering insulin is the first step to releasing fat from storage!
- Eat enough protein to maintain the muscle you have (about 1g per pound of body weight).
- Don’t fear healthy fats. Include them in moderation with all your meals.
- Ensure adequate structured water intake. That means half of your weight in ounces.
- Rethink refined carbs. These do not serve a legitimate purpose in our diets, and they hinder fat loss. Carbohydrates are used for fuel and should be consistent with how active we are.
Movement is a neurological necessity. Stop moving and we start to breakdown and essentially whither like a dying flower. Life is energy and energy is always moving. Movement triggers neurological responses at a cellular level to ensure our biological systems remain active and healthy.
Be sure to move on a daily basis and always seek progression in strength, mobility and flexibility.
Your future self will thank you for it.
Self awareness is an application of vision focusing on your own habitual behaviour and idiosyncrasies. Self awareness should be a deliberate act as it allows us to learn from our reactions and our own behaviour.
How do you react to certain circumstances?
How do your own thoughts affect your biological system?
How is your nutrition affecting yourself and those around you?
What do you need to do to support a greater benefit from your life choices and current lifestyle?
What are you going to do about it?
Awareness as a concept is about your spirituality. Your ability to absorb information and apply it to your thinking to obtain a greater perspective on all there is to life and your own existence.
At this time, many things are changing in the world. We live a time of awakening and desire to change, never seen before. A lot of people become more conscious and aware of issues and practices that have lasted for too long and that must change. Many people now want to take their lives back into their own hands and escape the model imposed by society in order to really know happiness and live the life they truly want to live – not one dictated by television, government, authority, magazines, movies, social identifications and all kinds of meaningless clichés many now want to get away from.
Many people are ready to hear the truths, and to become themselves, the change they wish to see in the world. Their consciousness grows, their interests evolve, the meaning of life changes for them, and they have new aspirations and inspirations, coupled with the desire to change themselves in order to also for many, change the world.
Do you recognise yourself in this way of thinking? If so, you are awakening.
How far do you want to go?
Attitudes are the established ways of responding to people and situations that we have learned, based on the beliefs, values and assumptions we hold.
Attitudes drive your behaviour. Your body language is also a reflection of your attitude.
Almost in every circumstance, you have a choice as to what attitude to adopt. There is nothing in any normal work situation that dictates you must react one way or another. If you feel angry about something that happens, for instance, that’s how you choose to feel.
You can adjust if you are aware of your behaviour.
Nothing in the event itself makes it absolutely necessary for you to feel that way. It is your choice. And since you do have a choice, most of the time you’ll be better off if you choose to react in a positive rather than a negative way.
Your attitude is the first thing people pick up on in face-to-face communication.
You can’t hide it.
Just as laughing, yawning, and crying are infectious, attitude is also infectious.
When you are operating with passion, with enthusiasm, intent, curiosity, and humility, your body language tends to take care of itself and sends out unmistakable signals of openness.
You are what you think so choose your thoughts wisely and be aware of the attitude that is a derivative of your thoughts.
Successful people learn how to win because they love what they do. All of them have a very strong desire to succeed. They have passion for their field, their business, their life and their attitudes are a reflection of this.
Passion is the single fastest way to inspire you to massive success. It is something you love. Something you’re excited about. Something you are willing to get up early for and something you will work hard to achieve.
Your attitude is your understood behavioural reaction to the decisions needed to succeed.
What you need to do?
Be aware of your thoughts and adjust your behaviour when required.
Whenever you are about to encounter a client or a third party, you must use self-talk to ensure your attitude aligns with how you want to present yourself, your product, your business and your information. More so on your bad days, even if you are grumpy, tired or stressed.
You must be the best version of yourself as often as possible and it all starts in your head, with your self-talk and your attitude. When under pressure and the occasion demands that you step up, take a breath, compose yourself, be calm and be your best!
Action is driven by your intent, passion and overall desire to do something. Some people wait until they hit rock bottom, until they have had enough.
I think the best approach is to look inwards at what you really want in life and simply chase it down.
Fear less and embrace the excitement of self development and growth.
Life is only really lived when you act on your inner demons, thoughts and desires.
