𝐃𝐨 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐬𝐭𝐫𝐮𝐠𝐠𝐥𝐞 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐚𝐥𝐥-𝐨𝐫-𝐧𝐨𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐚𝐥𝐢𝐭𝐲? Trust me, I did too, but I’ve come to realize that health is a journey, not a destination!
If you’re beginning to explore your health, I encourage you to focus on taking 𝒔𝒎𝒂𝒍𝒍, 𝒄𝒐𝒏𝒔𝒄𝒊𝒐𝒖𝒔, 𝒄𝒐𝒏𝒔𝒊𝒔𝒕𝒆𝒏𝒕 steps forward, rather than making radical changes.
Small steps are 𝒓𝒆𝒂𝒍𝒊𝒔𝒕𝒊𝒄, 𝒎𝒂𝒊𝒏𝒕𝒂𝒊𝒏𝒂𝒃𝒍𝒆 and allow you to easily identify the things that are working for you and the things that aren’t.
In time, the small, consistent steps add up to lasting change!
Here are some tips if you’re trying
to get started:
𝐒𝐢𝐭 𝐝𝐨𝐰𝐧 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐦𝐞𝐚𝐥𝐬 - take time to slow down when you eat to support digestion & mindfulness.
𝐒𝐭𝐚𝐫𝐭 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐯𝐞𝐠𝐞𝐭𝐚𝐛𝐥𝐞𝐬 - when building meals, put vegetables on your plate first. Aim to do this for two meals a day to increase your vegetable intake.
𝐂𝐚𝐫𝐫𝐲 𝐚 𝐫𝐞𝐮𝐬𝐚𝐛𝐥𝐞 𝐰𝐚𝐭𝐞𝐫 𝐛𝐨𝐭𝐭𝐥𝐞 - if you have water on hand, you’re more likely to drink it.
𝐏𝐫𝐢𝐨𝐫𝐢𝐭𝐢𝐳𝐞 𝐬𝐥𝐞𝐞𝐩 - rather than fitting sleep in when you can, set a sleep goal (7 hours) and try to stick to it.
𝐑𝐞𝐩𝐥𝐚𝐜𝐞 “𝐬𝐡𝐨𝐮𝐥𝐝” 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 “𝐜𝐨𝐮𝐥𝐝” - when negative self-talk comes up, swap the “should” to “could.” Choose to empower yourself rather than put yourself down!
𝐀𝐢𝐦 𝐭𝐨 𝐰𝐚𝐥𝐤 𝐚𝐭 𝐥𝐞𝐚𝐬𝐭 𝟏𝟎 𝐦𝐢𝐧𝐮𝐭𝐞𝐬 𝐚 𝐝𝐚𝐲 - keep the goal easy in order to achieve it, then increase it when you’re ready.
