5 Small Things That Create Big Change.

Overhauling your health can feel completely overwhelming. We struggle with knowing how, what, and when to eat. We’re confused on which type of workout is best, and how often we should do it.  

We think that in order to make big change we need to do big things.

In this special Sunday edition of my blog, I’m going to tell you that that way of thinking will only leave you frustrated. And unsuccessful.

In order to make big change, we actually need to do small (and super simple) things consistently.

Starting tomorrow and through Friday, I want you to focus on these 5 simple tasks.

Will you feel completely brand new and vibrant by Friday? Maybe, but if you continue to practice these 5 simple things, over time you’ll have made some BIG changes to your health. Yes, it takes time. But that’s okay, because we don’t mess with quick fixes and our health is more than worth it.

Monday: Drink an extra glass of water. Before or after (or both!) that first cup of coffee. Get fancy and add some lemon, cucumber, or mint. 

Tuesday: Take a walk. Even if for only 10 minutes. Leisure walking is always a good idea, especially if you’re prone to stress, as it naturally lowers cortisol. And it gets your body moving and blood pumping!

Wednesday: Eat some extra veggies. In a smoothie. A big salad at lunch. Be an adult and just eat some extra greens.

Thursday: Show your gut some love. Gut health is everything! From supporting our immune system to affecting our mood. Add some fermented foods to your diet. For example, a forkful of kraut on your eggs or an afternoon kombucha. And if those ideas disgust you, ask your doctor for a good probiotic. **Bonus: Take note of the food you eat and how it makes you feel.

Friday: Breathe. Take a few minutes to just intentionally notice your breathing. Inhale, taking a big (big) belly breath. Exhale (loudly) through your mouth. Several times.

Let me know how it goes!
