The DO's & DON'Ts of a healthy lifestyle!

Jul 26, 2021

Y'all, I know I'm always saying this, but a healthy lifestyle is NOT PERFECT! 

If we can't check all the boxes all the time, that doesn't mean that we've failed ourselves. It doesn't mean we have to start over again on Monday. And it doesn't mean we're unhealthy.

It means we're human. 

So, today I encourage you to give yourself grace! And ask yourself, "What is one thing I can do for my health today?" 

Here's a good place to start... 

  • Drink more water
  • Prioritize sleep
  • Get movement in
  • Manage stress
  • Call a friend
  • Do some self-care
  • Eat one nutrient-dense meal
  • Meditate
  • Journal
  • Get outside

When it comes to the big picture of a holistic, healthy lifestyle, here are a few more things to keep in mind...

DON'T... 

  • Restrict yourself (You need to eat more than 1,200 calories!)
  • Cut out healthy carbohydrates 
  • Rely on hormonal birth control to 'heal' you
  • Only do cardio exercise (Lifting will NOT make you bulky!)
  • Do Keto 
  • Watch TV at night before you go to sleep
  • Take metabolism boosting supplements 
  • Stop eating fruit because it contains natural sugar 
  • Put others first 
  • Try to do it alone 
  • Believe everything you learn online (I.e. Listen to Influencers with NO health credentials) 

DO... 

  • Eat your favorite foods
  • Balance your meals
  • Exercise that is enjoyable 
  • Honor your body's hunger cues
  • Unplug from technology
  • Put YOURSELF first
  • Get personalized support
