How To Start Eating Healthy?

restaurant-energy-traditional-eating-energetic_1253-607
Today, no one doubts the need to eat properly and in a balanced way. However, many are constantly postponing the day from which this new and long-awaited life will begin. It happens due to simple and understandable reasons. When we hear about a healthy diet, as a rule, the following things come to our minds:

  • To eat healthy you must abandon your favorite (harmful) foods;
  • You need to fight with a sense of hunger and restrict yourself from eating when you feel hungry.

All these statements are wrong! Remember, a balanced and healthy diet does not imply anything like this, at all! First of all, there are no “useful” and “harmful” products! The use or harm of products is always determined only by the amount of food and the part of the day when you eat it.
Secondly, we offer you to change the approach. Of course, your organism experiences stress if you try to change all your habits at once and in the short time, and thus your body starts begging you to return to the past style of life, the one it is used to.
Instead, you should start with smaller steps, as this way you will protect your body from stress, and we offer you to do it in several simple stages.
Step 1
Don’t change anything in your daily menu, but add three products that have to be consumed every day:

  • One small carrot
  • Wheat bran (50-100 g)
  • Rosehip decoction (1 glass)

Step 2 (Move to it whenever you want, but not earlier than 3 days after you’ve started the first step)
At this stage, your goal is to become more disciplined in your meals. You need to start writing down what you eat, as this will help you to see what elements your body lacks and what further changes should be made to make your diet more balanced and healthier. Besides, basing on this data you can create your own meal plan.
Step 3
Create a personalized balanced diet.
Step 4
After a certain time (someone will need a month, and for some, it may take a whole year) you will develop the necessary skills and knowledge to make a balanced diet plan without a calculator.
A healthy diet will strengthen your immunity and you will forget about the seasonal cold, chronic diseases, and excess pounds. You will feel lightness and harmony, your hair will become strong and shiny, the skin will become cleaner, and your nails will be stronger.

How to Change Yourself and Your Life for the Better?

How to Change Yourself and Your Life for the Better?

happy-child-with-cardboard-wings-and-inspirational-phrase_1134-508

How often do you say “I will start a diet tomorrow”, “I will start running tomorrow” and all other phrases that begin with “I’ll start TOMORROW”?! I bet that each of you had said such phrases quite often, but as a rule, the progress rarely goes further than discussion…

We often are too critical to ourselves. Someone wants to know how to lose weight, others want to start eating healthy, working out, change a job, change themselves… this list can be endless! But what do you think always restricts us from moving from empty promises to action? – It is always you who stands on your way!

So how can you overcome your inside barriers and start acting now? You will find the answer in this article!

3 Golden Rules To Get Started

At the initial stage, there are a few rules, without which the process of changing your life can be quite tough or even useless. So, what are these rules?

Rule #1. Motivation

The most important and powerful tool for you at the initial stage should be the motivation. You have to be passionate about change. Motivation is the basis of everything! Agree that people who really want something – reach their goals no matter what, and all our references to a lack of time and workload are nothing more than simple excuses.

So: if you really want something, find something that motivates you and stay motivated all the time!

Rule #2. Set clear goals

Often we don’t realize what exactly we want, and as the result, we can’t reach our goals because we actually don’t have a specific goal. To become successful in life you have to set specific goals (even better if your goals have deadlines) and work on achieving them!

Rule #3. Get out of your comfort zone

Our life is full of stereotypes. One of such stereotypes says about the impossibility of changing ourselves and we take it for granted because we feel comfortable this way. To make a change, you need to leave your comfort zone, start doing something that you were not used to because only this way you can reach your goals.

Make A Change!

Now when you’ve found the right motivation and set a goal, it’s time to move to the main thing – start changing yourself.

Stage 1. Begin to think positively and change yourself

At the initial stage of changing yourself, start to think only about good things. All successful people think positively. But remember – failures can happen with anyone, and you have to find positive moments even in unpleasant situations as this will help you to avoid stress. Don’t think about the failure, think about what you need to improve in order to avoid failures in the future!

Stage 2. Change yourself and fight with stress

Once you have learned to think positively, continue to fight against stress. After all, successful and balanced people know how to control their emotions.

Stage 3. Think about the qualities you need

To achieve success in any sphere you just need a number of useful qualities such as:

  • confidence
  • passion
  • optimism
  • discipline
  • patience

You can add other useful qualities that you would like to possess. After your list is complete, think about what you can do to obtain these qualities and act!

Good luck and keep in mind: In just two days TOMORROW will be YESTERDAY! So you have to start NOW!
