Every year, one of the most common New Year's resolutions is to "eat healthier, treat yourself well, and live a healthy life," but what exactly does that mean?
There are so many different ways to eat healthier and live healthier, and it may take some time to figure out what that means for you.
You can start with the easiest goals. You don't have to set high goals from the start because goals that are too high are not easy to achieve. Start with the projects that are easiest to control.
Example: Starting tomorrow, I will start eating less ramen, starting with 3 times a week, you let yourself reduce to once a week, then once every two weeks. Or, clean your room every Friday night, or as simple as sign up for a yoga class~
These are things that can be done in no time and give you the confidence to do it! As we know, most projects start out the same way, which can be daunting at first, but once you benefit from a happier, healthier, more productive lifestyle, you'll soon be filled with moving forward vigorously. Therefore leads you to be willing to make more changes and put in more effort.
You can start by looking at how your food choices affect your body.
Many people go to extremes; they decide to become 100% gluten-free vegan without giving their body a warning, or they started a diet and eat only salads, or maybe even worse, only plain oats. While these methods may be popular, they may not be sustainable.
Healthy eating varies from person to person. It depends on a million different criteria, such as lifestyle and health goals. It takes observation and practice to get it right.
How do I learn what to eat?
Listing your eating habits is an effective way to track your food intake. Write down everything you eat and drink, including candy, your morning coffees, weekend sugary drinks and alcohol. Write down when you ate or drank the item. This will help you discover your habits. For example, you might find yourself always looking for something sweet to get through your afternoon lows. Or, after a long day at work, you may find yourself craving heavy food. It's a good idea to jot down how you feel when you decided to eat those heavy and sugary food especially if you're not hungry. are you tired? overstressed?
Look at the unhealthy eating habits you emphasize. Make sure you've identified all the triggers that lead you to these habits. Knowing more about yourself can help you be more in control and aware of your body's needs, start by identifying some areas you want to improve, but don't forget to praise yourself for doing the right thing.
“To ensure good health: eat lightly, breathe deeply, live moderately, cultivate cheerfulness, and maintain an interest in life.” - William Londen
To eat healthier foods, you may need to change some of your daily habits. You may also need to change something in the environment. Your environment includes everything around you, such as the kitchen where you prepare most of your meals.
Your kitchen will play a very important role if you decide to change your eating habits first. Start with the cupboards that store most of your snacks and treats. We always recommend starting slowly, rather than throwing it all away, choosing to give 80% of your snacks to friends or family and keep 20% for yourself.
Start with the smallest things and stick to them.
You can also start in the refrigerator and replace those high-sugar chocolates, puddings, juices, etc. with fresh fruits. For better convenience, you can buy all the fruits & veggies you need once a week and pack them in different color containers and put them in the freezer, so you can have different options every day while you craving something sweet.
The crunch of leafy greens or the crunch of fresh apple is a simple joy. But keeping them stay fresh the whole week can be a real challenge. This makes investing in good food containers helpful. Most fruits and veggies can be stored in the refrigerator. A crisper drawer will help protect your produce and retain moisture for longer freshness, while a good lightweight locking container will keep them fresh.
