Practically overnight, my husband and I have changed our diet. We didn’t do it for weight loss, but for health gain.
We have seen and heard enough in recent months concerning the health of family and friends, to convince us it was time for some personal adjustments as well.
Certainly, even with the best of intentions, one can still become unwell at times, but it never hurts to increase our nourishing practices nonetheless.
By making delicious, health conscious smoothies and other beneficial recipes as well, we are improving our overall nutritional requirements, which is empowering.
We have found ways to make this new commitment fun, and not a total experience in deprivation. Mostly, is has been just modifying some old habits, and adding more consistent new ones.
It has felt wonderful to implement the wellness steps listed below on a more regular basis:
N – Not drinking diet coke, and limiting consumption of artificial sweeteners
U – Utilizing vegetables every day, and eating more fruit
T – Taking daily supplements
R – Routinely getting a minimum of 8 hours sleep through an earlier bedtime
I – Increase in drinking water, and reduction in coffee intake
T – Taking more time for play, relaxation, and just ‘being’
I – Increased exercise commitment
O – Omitting sugar as much as possible
N – Not feeling deprived by adding and creating delicious recipes
