As 2014 comes to a close let’s ease our way back from the excess. Explore a simple, new twist to your lifestyle for 30 days or less and be easy on yourself. All too often we push too hard too fast and then become easily discouraged when we’re not able to maintain it.
Choose some sort of twist that challenges you but aim for a week or two at a time and maybe 30 days max. Try cutting out sweetened beverages, red meat, processed or fast food. Maybe your challenge is to start walking 30 minutes a day, add strength training to your cardio or vice versa and maybe it’s cutting back on eating out or drinking alcohol.
There are so many ways to incorporate healthy habits into your lifestyle and the key to starting small is to also pay attention to how much better you feel with this small twist. Starting there can turn this challenge into a new reality for you and your loved ones.
Happy New Year!!!
