3 ways to take a healthier turn

Since I began my Nutrition course there are times when I read something and feel like my eyes are opening for the first time.  Things about food and nutrition that I thought I knew but not to the extent I know now.

Here are 3 things you can do right now to make your next turn a little healthier.

1.   Select foods that are as close to their natural state as possible.  This means it comes from the Earth.  If it comes in a box or made in a factory it’s not real food.  Do this as much as possible each time you eat. courtesy: thethingswesay.com

2.  Get rid of the ‘diet’ mentality.  Do not go on a diet, change your diet to suit your goals.   The minute your brain senses there are foods that are off limits that’s all it wants.  It tries to find ways to have them.  Instead, focus on adding foods that are whole to your menu.

3.  Put down the phone and go outside.  You know that expression ‘stop and smell the roses’, it’s more true today than ever.  Most people are attached to a phone or computer (or both) for the better part of the day.  Put it down and go outside.  Go for a walk and just enjoy being free.  Disconnect.

And remember, little changes done consistently go a lot further than big changes done short term.

That’s it for now.  Hope it’s a great one.
