5 Healthy Changes to Make Right Now
Do a personal spring-cleaning and toss out unhealthy habits that you may have fallen into during the winter. Below are five healthy changes to start making today!
Follow your Personalized Nutrition Plan. It is understood that one of the most impactful steps you can take to live healthier is to change your diet. If you’re not already following your Blood Type, GenoType or SWAMI diet, you’ll want to begin right now. We realize that for some people going “cold turkey” can be challenging. If it’s difficult for you to change your diet all at once, focus on emphasizing your beneficial foods and eliminating three avoid foods each week.
Don’t eat or drink what you can’t pronounce. Reading food labels can be like interpreting another language! Stick to whole foods by shopping the perimeter of your supermarket. Fresh, organic fruits and vegetables, grass fed meats, free-range poultry, wild-caught fish, and organic dairy products are best.
Get most of your carbs from fruits and veggies. We’re just starting to see the first harvests of early spring fruits and veggies! Take advantage of nature’s bounty and make them a big part of your diet. Wheat should be avoided by all blood types. Choose cereals and breads wisely and in small quantities from your list of acceptable grains.
Commit to getting some form of exercise daily. Exercise is an essential part of a healthy lifestyle, but that doesn’t mean that you have to jump into a Zumba routine or sign up for a marathon. Take small steps by doing a yoga video, walking around your block a few times with a buddy, or dusting off your bicycle.
Put a Ban on Technology. Create technology free zones in your home (like the bedroom and dining table) and create some space to be away from your computer or smart phone daily. Feeling the need to constantly check your email or read your social media feeds can almost become addictive and can add to your stress levels.
