Drinking the Right Way

A simple first step that doesn’t take huge levels of commitment and life-changing decisions is to only drink water and tea or coffee that doesn’t contain any added sugar or unnecessary calories. A good step is to enjoy your coffee at home, and to monitor how your body reacts to caffeine. Every positive and healthy step will lead to further benefits. For example, if you make coffee at home, you don’t add huge amounts of sugar or spend ridiculous amounts on take-out coffee, resulting in decreased sugar intake and an increased bank balance. That’s a win-win and a good rule of thumb for whether something is healthy or unhealthy.

There are many reasons to avoid alcohol. But for now, simply focus on the fact that you’ve decided to consume only water. This doesn’t have to be from an old bottle; feel free to spoil yourself with cocktail glasses and add whatever fruit or vegetables you like. Barware and special barware glasses make a big difference in how your brain perceives your consumption and ultimately affect your long-term goals.

You Are What You Eat

Remember that the intro mentioned balance. This applies to your food, too. When people make a decision to change, they tend to go all out and turn their lives upside down, labeling certain foods as good and others as bad. This is not the best approach for longer-term success and maintenance. Start small, take your usual portion and remove one spoonful for the first month. That’s it. The following month, you can continue to remove that spoonful and additionally exchange one item on your plate for a healthier option. Do that for a full three months and then continue by exchanging the second item on your plate.

The mistake that’s made very often is to jump into action and think that your motivation will only last for so long, so now’s the time. And while the time most certainly is now, it’s vital to understand how long it has taken you to acquire and cement your habits, and then choose a suitable time frame to undo them again. There is nothing wrong with taking two to three years to lose weight, the reason being that then it will be for the long term. Every time someone attempts a diet and fails, it becomes progressively more difficult to try again, resulting in doubt creeping in. Start very slow and be patient, take small steps. After a while, small steps in the right direction will have brought you to your destination.

Mad About Mental Health

Mental health is a hot topic at the moment. It’s impossible to open your phone and not have the issue confront you. There are plenty of tips and tricks online, but what if the phone that you get most of your info from is part of the problem? Studies show that reduced time online increases overall well-being, not least because of the comparisons we draw about the lives of others based on one image. It can’t be overstated enough that nature, breathwork and genuine in-person time spent with loved ones is the key to happiness, coupled with healthy food and lots of sleep.

Take your time with everything. Any goal you have is valid, as long as it’s your own goal and not that of society. Slow down and look back at all the aspects of your life that you are managing well, look at the path you’ve taken that may have seemed impossible only a few years ago. As the saying goes – To ensure good health: eat lightly, breathe deeply, live moderately, cultivate cheerfulness, and maintain an interest in life.
