In celebration of Healthy Eating Week 2023, from 12th-16th June, we’ve put together some tips to help focus on a healthier lifestyle!
Seeking sustainable ways to lose weight and enhance your overall health? Tired of restrictive diets and quick fixes that don’t yield lasting results?
Embrace the journey towards healthier habits with simple, yet effective changes that won’t overwhelm you. Remember, your progress is about the direction you’re headed, not the speed at which you get there.
Here are some straightforward tips to jumpstart your journey towards a healthier lifestyle:
- Embrace Physical Activity: Exercise isn’t just beneficial for your body – it does wonders for your mind too. As you move, your brain releases ‘happy’ hormones that enhance your mood. Even a brisk 15-minute walk can make a world of difference.
- Maintain a Food & Mood Diary: Often, we’re unaware of our eating habits until we track them. Keeping a diary of your food intake and moods for a week can shed light on existing patterns and areas for improvement.
- Create a Specific Action Plan: Make your intentions concrete with clear, attainable goals. Instead of vaguely deciding to ‘eat healthier’, commit to eating a piece of fruit every day for a snack, for instance.
- Balance Your Meals: Strive for balanced meals with two servings of vegetables, a source of protein, and a portion of high-fibre starchy food like potatoes, brown rice, or wholemeal pasta.
- Enjoy Your Food: Ultimately, the joy of eating should never be compromised. Relishing each bite of your meal not only enhances your dining experience but also leaves you feeling satiated and less inclined to snack afterwards.
Remember, every step you take towards a healthier lifestyle is a victory. Celebrate each one and keep moving forward!
