My top five wellness tips
1. Keep it simple!
You don’t have to overwhelm yourself with all the rules of every latest trend! Find what works for you and then stick to it! It’s all about small steps adding up to big progress!
2. Start small
Set one small goal for yourself then tackle it! It may be “workout for 20 minutes every day” or “drink 75 ounces of water each day” or maybe “cook dinner at home each weeknight.” Whatever it is, start with one small goal then work towards reaching that goal every day! It will soon become a habit, the habit becomes a lifestyle!
3. Make it about you!
Find something you enjoy doing, then keep it up! If you absolutely hate running, then don’t start out by running! If you enjoy outdoor walks around the park, then set a goal to take a 20-30 minute walk every day. Maybe you enjoy exploring new places, so try checking out new trails, parks, or points of interest … the Tennessee State Capitol is a great place to get in an outdoor workout!
Your health and wellness shouldn’t be stressful! Find things that will do the opposite of stress you out! Keep a positive mindset! Try making a gratitude list first thing in the morning. Perhaps a walk outside after you workday or on a lunch break! Maybe even finding a friend who will commit to 3 days a week of being active as well! Keep each other accountable!
5. Keep it Real!
Focus on nourishing your body with as many “real” foods as possible! Include lots of fresh vegetables, leafy greens, fruits, and proteins! The simplest way to nourish your body by “keeping it real” is to ask yourself, “What is the source of this food?” Prioritize the food that comes from nature! By doing this you are providing your body with essential nutrients to keep it functioning at it’s best!
