Legs to Stand On

I do have a few tips to share that I think can make healthy living easier. Here are my top three:

1)      Do something manageable and progressive. I have seen too many people go out gang busters and then get hurt or frustrated and then end up quitting or binging. I would suggest easing into an activity or diet and getting advice from someone who has successfully achieved what you want to do.

2)     The easiest nutrition tip that I know would be to eat the colors of the rainbow. That will help you pick out a variety of good produce. I also find it easier to eat and cook healthy if I cook in advance. I cook on Sundays for the week and it really helps after a long work day to have a yummy and healthy meal ready to heat up.

3)     My third tip is along the spirit line would be to set aside time at least once a week to just sit quietly and think. This gives me a chance to clear my mind and recharge. It also makes me excited for the next day or to start the week and restores my optimism.

I really can’t stress enough how important it is to set aside time to clear your head and just chill. I do think that health is really a throne that stands on three legs: exercise + nutrition + mind set. Some refer to the three legs as mind, body, spirit. The next set of interviews that I would like to share with you are with some individuals who focus on ways to incorporate having a healthy mind and spirit into your life.
