I’m pretty sure we’re all thinking the same at the moment? How to make the most of what we have right? From money to food to health. There’s something about how this year has panned out so far that’s really making me think about my life choices. But it isn’t easy it is? Making decisions and changes to your lifestyle. I’m not talking about weight! Not at all. I’m just talking about over health and wellbeing. Feeling better in all aspects of the word. From decluttering to making sure I have the right vitamins and minerals. Going more plant-based, moving more and generally making the most of the food we have at home instead of all that top-up shopping just because!
But it can be hard changing your lifestyle for so many reasons! How do you know that the changes you want to put in place are actually going to benefit you? Here are a few things you can do to make sure your lifestyle changes are right for you.
Test it out
If you’re based in the US, you can actually get a blood test to work out what food you might have intolerances to, or what minerals you’re lacking. It’s pretty amazing because then you’ll know if you should be more plant-based, cut back on the dairy or if you’re generally on a healthy diet now. If you’re worried about the cost at this time, here’s a handy discount which could make all the difference!
Ask Your Friends
You might not know it, but I bet your friends feel the same way or have already made some changes to their lifestyle. Have a chat with them, let them know that losing weight isn’t your main goal but you just want to be healthier. If they’re good friends, they’ll support you and they always say that having a good support group makes all the difference.
Use Social Media
Social media has it’s good and bad side. But it can be great for finding your tribe of people who are into the same thing as you. Want vegan recipes, head to Instagram! Want inspiration for a stress-free environment? Pinterest could be your best friend! Want to up your movement? There’s a Facebook Group for that! It’s always worth having a look. Even if you don’t get involved, you can just be a watcher and soak up the information and inspiration
Whatever you do, don’t put too much pressure on yourself. Life is tough at the best of times, so just take the first few steps to make yourself feel better. A little at a time works best and there’s no better investment than the one you make in yourself. Fact.
