Setting healthy new goals for 2019? It’s important to be realistic and come up with a plan that you can actually stick to. Eat better. Reduce stress. Exercise. All are doable if you take them a step at a time.
Eat better. Stock your shelves exclusively with things that are on your healthy list. For example: Whole grains, organic fruit and vegetables, single-source protein, and unsaturated fats. If the not-so-healthy stuff isn't there, you won’t be tempted. Furthermore, it’s not just what you eat that matters, it is also how. Practice mindful eating. Slow down and pay attention.
Reduce Stress. Sometimes the source of our stress is not something we think we can necessarily change. A difficult supervisor or family member, an illness or death of a loved one, a sudden shift in circumstances. What we can’t change we can learn to deal with in ways that are less harmful to our minds and bodies. Meditate. Do yoga. Seek help from support groups, professionals or friends. Research your subject online. There are books, articles, blogs, and all sorts of free content on how to better deal with these situations.
Exercise. You don’t have to run marathons or do handstands, but you do have to move your body on a regular basis. Take walks. Swim. Dance. Try an elliptical machine or yoga. There are many ways to work out and it’s important to pick one that suits your body, your schedule, and your temperament!
