When you have made the decision to incorporate healthier
habits into your daily life, it can be a bit overwhelming.
After all, a quick internet search will yield thousands
upon thousands of suggestions. If you’re feeling a bit
overwhelmed, know that you are not alone and we are here
The first question always is, or should be, is where to
An easy place to begin your new lifestyle is to look at
where you're currently sitting, and where you eventually
want to be.
You start this with running over your day to day life
with a fine tooth comb and making small changes. Most
people are creatures of habit, so this may not be the
most comfortable task.
But it’s a good idea to address your problem areas first!
For example, if you're somewhat of a sedentary person
then you'll definitely want to start exercising. But you
can’t just go from being a couch potato to hitting the gym
for an hour every day. Your body just isn’t used to it.
Not only will you have to gradually incorporate physical
activity into your life, you’ll also have to address the
pink elephant in the room: why haven't I been exercising
Find out your reasons and change them, whether you commit
to waking up earlier or cut back on your evening couch time.
Or perhaps one of your problem areas has to do with nutrition.
If that’s the case, you’re not alone! So many of us love to
pull out our smartphones and get food delivered. A lot.
But while it's fine to treat yourself from time to time, it's
not something that you should do every day. So, ask yourself,
why am I always getting food delivered?
Is it for the convenience or the taste? If you just love
certain food, then search for healthy ways to make it at home.
And if you're doing it more for the convenience, then join
the many people who are all about food prep!
If you work outside of the home, then chances are good that
you have a vending machine full of sugary and high-fat snacks,
and that’s a recipe for disaster when those mid-morning and
late-afternoon hunger pangs kick in.
When we get hungry, we tend to eat with our eyes first.
Vow to prepare your snacks for the week and bring them in,
making sure you don't get that three o'clock candy bar!
