3 Nourishing Habits to Transform Your Life



BUILDING UPON HABITS AND SMALL CHANGES IS WHERE SUSTAINABLE AND ENJOYABLE HEALTH BEGINS.

Have you ever felt like getting healthy is a serious struggle? You start your new diet or a new year strong and motivated, but in about 3 weeks or maybe even 3 days (been there) it seems like it's just too much to keep up with? Well, that is one of the first things I hear from the women I coach. It's just too much to keep up with. And it's that frustration cycle that derails their goals. And realistically they're right!


So I'd like to share 3 easy + nourishing habits to make your health goals more attainable, help you feel good on the inside and get you closer to feeling better about yourself ❤


HABIT # 1

FIND YOUR MORNING MOJO Starting your morning off the right way is so helpful in having a confident day that just flows. But realistically, every morning is not perfect so finding a morning mojo staple can guarantee a hefty delivery of nutrients.

Try incorporating a nutrient-dense green smoothie, oatmeal bowl, or breakfast bowl.

Those are my three favorites on rotation to drink first thing after my warm lemon water. According to Chinese medicine, the digestive tract is most active from 8am-10am so assuring that nutrients are delivered between that time can create stable energy levels through lunch. Hello balanced blood sugar and goodbye afternoon crash!


Need to transform that green smoothie into a quick breakfast? Look to add a plant protein in your morning mojo!


NOURISHING HABIT #2 ADD MORE COLOR TO YOUR PLATE

Remember when mom used to say "make sure you're eating your veggies? Well, how often have you sat down to eat and noticed how bland your plate looked in color? If your plate is more pastel rather than vibrant, it's time for an upgrade.


Look to incorporate at least 1-2 different colored veggies in at least one of your meals daily.


The colors in fresh fruits, vegetables, and beans represent their phytonutrient content. A multicolored diet gives you a wide-ranging palette of phytonutrients- the antioxidant, immune-boosting, and health-promoting properties of the plant. Some of my favorites (and quick to prepare) are broccoli, sweet potato, and green beans.


NOURISHING HABIT # 3 BREATHE DEEPER

Mindful breathing was once underrated, but now it's back. I know its automatic and subconscious, but when you are stressed, anxious, or excited, the first thing that changes is your breathing. Start taking deeper breaths at least 3 times a day.

Deep Breathing can reduce anxiety, agitation, and stress while promoting relaxation, calm and inner peace. Wim Hof, a Dutch extreme exercise practitioner, and teacher advocates deep breathing, to enrich the blood with oxygen—which has many benefits, including alkalizing the blood by reducing CO 2, which can decrease inflammation.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO MEDITATE TO TAKE A DEEP BREATH.
