Do You Have Healthy Eating Resolutions For The New Year?
Healthy eating is a resolution that should ring true throughout the year, not just the start of a every new year. Each year, people generate New Year’s resolutions to get healthy and fail because they set goals that are either unobtainable or are unclear as to what they really want to achieve.
Healthy Eating – What is Your Motivation?
It is admirable that you want to get healthy but what is your motivation? Is healthy eating your goal or are you looking for a total health make-over? You must be committed to a plan of some kind in order for this to work. If you are motivated by looking in the mirror and not liking what you see then healthy eating is only part of the answer. You need to accept and like yourself for who you really are first and then take that one step further. Many people go overboard with their New Year’s resolutions without fully realizing what they are getting themselves into. Unfortunately, this causes most people to lose their motivation by February or March.
What Are The Schools Of Thought When It Comes To Healthy Eating Resolutions?
So how do you commit yourself to healthy eatingand sticking to it? There are two schools of thought when it comes to this. The first, is to make small goals that you can achieve and using them as stepping stones to bigger and better things. The alternative approach is to think long term and make a solid blueprint on how you want to get there. Both schools of thought are good approaches to realizing your resolutions but you need to understand one thing before you start. Are you the type of person that can carry out long-term goals or do you need small, incremental successes to push you along? Answer this and you’ve got your plan in place.
How Then Do I Incorporate Healthy Eating Into My Lifestyle?
Healthy eating is not just a lifestyle but a way of thinking. Learning how to eat healthy takes knowledge, patience and a willingness to try new things. It is not about abandoning everything you did before but a way to improve on how you were eating before. Healthy eating starts and ends with each piece of food you consume. We all have choices in life and the choices we make determine our next move.
Here is a prime example of why many people get this all wrong.
Suppose you are at a party or get together and they are serving many different types of food. Some are healthy but many are not. You feel guilty for overindulging so you overcompensate for what you did and decide you will skip some meals to make up for the added calories. This type of thinking about healthy eating is commonplace but very detrimental to your health.
You need to allow yourself to indulge without feeling guilty but in a way that won’t burden you. No human has will that strong that they can say no to everything. Enjoy yourself. It is good for you. But understand, you have to stay the course. Of course there will be bumps in the road. This is what strengthens our resolve. You don’t have to skip any meals. Just remember to eat healthy the next time.
The Benefits Of Healthy Eating
Healthy eating has many long term benefits. These benefits are not limited to just the physical side as the mental side is just as important. The mental strength you receive from putting into place an eating healthy plan cannot be overlooked. Healthy eating also allows the proper nutrients from the foods you eat to do the job they were intended to do. Things such as healthy brain function, healthy heart function and healthy digestion are all a good part of healthy eating.
New Year’s resolutions are a good way to find commitment to get yourself started on the work you need to do with your health. This commitment will be your focus. Allow yourself the freedom to learn about what you will be eating. You will see that you may change what your New year’s resolutions are all about and this can lead to better motivation and better long lasting health. Go ahead, make your healthy eating resolutions be your guide to a better you.
