Some of my clients have tried intermittent fasting, ketogenic eating styles, vegan, Paleo, etc. Sometimes we are so consumed with the eating styles and restrictions that we forget to add in the whole lifestyle balance. What happened to enjoying the process rather than just the progress?
This winter, let us make 2019 about adding light and laughter back into the mix. We have to eat our whole lives. Let’s not create torture out of an essential physiological need for fuel. When we see food as fuel for our entire lives, we can relax with a treat now and then. We can find food freedom. Whatever one does for his or her health most of the time shows up in life all of the time.
I think 2019 should include movement outdoors in nature to connect to the bigger picture of all of humanity and creatures, big and small. It should include exercising and cooking with friends rather than alone. It should include quiet and persistent action rather than just talking about goals and protocols one is on. Let the results do the talking in 2019. Celebration of small improvements in lifestyle will be important in 2019. We need to see the joy in every day activities that enhance our lives.
Spark joy in 2019.
