As the New Year rolls around, so too does the advice on becoming healthy, eating right and losing weight. If you’ve been following this throughout the year, you will be one step ahead and in a great position to keep up the good habits to maintain good health.
We’ve all eaten our share of treats over the holidays (including me despite a nasty stomach bug since Christmas morning) but that’s the way life goes. It’s goes back to the 80/20 rule. We don’t have to deprive ourselves completely to enjoy a healthy figure and have enough energy.
It’s so much more than food. Our food choices are the result of our lifestyle. What we give priority to.
It’s the basics that are vital. Rest and sleep we are horrible at in this day and age. Giving priority to meals, particularly family meals is another important component we fall back on. Keeping hydrated and getting enough exercise and fresh air. Slowing down and being mindful of each moment is almost unheard of by many people.
Why have these become so unimportant when it’s clear they are backbone to our survival?
I hope by now that my daily input have helped you establish these daily habits enough that you will continue to do them without my support. But I’m not going far. My pledge was to post daily for 1 year. I did that and I loved it. I will continue to research, post and hopefully inspire you on a regular basis. There are certain components of this blog which I think I will continue for years to come, Zoë’s Kitchen, for one. I love that she has learnt so much, even if I haven’t included as much of that as I meant to.
I leave you to your New Year celebrations now. Thank you for reading and for your feedback. Whatever you got out of this, I am pretty sure I got more.
