It’s about to happen. The doors are opening, events are happening, concerts, sports, festivals, street fairs – it’s all revving back up. And meanwhile, you’re wondering how you’re gonna fit into your shorts. Time to get things crackin’ – and I don’t mean the beer bottles. In the pursuit of weight loss, it’s never one thing. There’s no silver bullet. But, there are 10 really important habits to help you shed the dreaded Covid 15 and get your body ready for the long days of an ‘almost normal’ summer. I’ve got you!
“Weight loss relies on many habits that have nothing to do with what you eat. Sleep is one of them.”
If you’ve found yourself struggling with keeping a positive mindset lately, you are not alone. According to renowned brain health Dr. Daniel Amen, all of us are being traumatized in some way. The human brain is wired to remember traumatic experiences, and in some people, this biological reality may lead to PTSD or post-traumatic stress disorder.
I have learned that while you can’t control what happens in life, you can control how you react and for us, that means reaching into our medicine cabinet. Not the one you may be thinking of, exactly. I’m referring to your kitchen – your pantry and your refrigerator – because they can hold the answer to your overall well-being. The benefits of a nutrient-rich approach to eating are enormous and the beautiful part is, they’re delicious, too. I’ll dive into the 6 core categories of foods to fill your plate, and how they can contribute to the whole, beautiful being that is you. When you take care of yourself, you take care of everyone around you.
