As a fitness trainer extraordinaire, I have given suggestions for health, fitness, and fat loss on innumerable occasions. I notice that quite frequently what I suggest sounds almost ‘too easy’, as there is a generally pervasive mindset that being healthy and losing weight is an onerous undertaking. The truth is, our thoughts, feelings and daily habits make all the difference and are entirely changeable starting in the smallest of ways. On Thanksgiving, a natural starting point is to appreciate all that we have in our lives, and the first step in making a difference. I invite you to consider making dietary and lifestyle changes from a positive approach of adding to your diet and lifestyle. The intention is to take positive action to take care of yourself at this moment.
Here is my top 5 list of Making Life Good concepts to add to your diet and lifestyle:
1. Notice and be mindful of all that you have in your life
2. Take time to truly enjoy food and drink
3. Eat more green vegetables
4. Drink herbal tea
5. Eat more fibre
Ps. The best part is the list above is easily applied anytime and for a Thanksgiving feast-Happy Thanksgiving!
