We’re all about promoting sustainable change, and making small changes a bit at a time will help you create the life for which you’re searching.
Ditch the Soda
This is a huge step that can have astonishing results. Depending upon the amount of soda that you drink, you might be ingesting a ton of sugar every single day, not to mention what the soda itself is doing to your teeth. Cutting soda out of your diet can be a difficult change to make, but if you approach it systematically and replace it with a healthier beverage, the change doesn’t have to be painful. Start by cutting out a single soda a day. Gradually cut back your intake until you’re not drinking any at all.
Stick to the Stuff that Spoilers
When you go grocery shopping and are looking for healthy choices, try shopping on the perimeter of the store! Most grocery stores will have a layout that locates things that must be refrigerated on the outside aisles. Try your very best to stay on the perimeter, and if you find yourself heading down a middle aisle to pick up something processed or preserved, take a moment and consider whether or not there’s a fresh alternative. Even if you have to make it yourself, the changes sticking to this simple rule promotes will be significant.
Cook at Home
Even if you’re choosing “healthy” options, fast food and restaurants usually aren’t going to be serving things as healthy as those you could create at home. If you find yourself mostly grabbing take out or going out to eat, make a conscious effort to cook more meals in your own home. You can even start with a single meal a week at first, and gradually increase that number until you’re making most of your own meals.
