If you want to achieve success in your heath goals, the number one thing that you will need is commitment. Many people set wellness goals for themselves, but when it comes to following these plans, they will continually have excuses why they don’t follow them. One way to avoid this excuse trap is to have a clear reason for obtaining your goal. For instance, your reason for improving your health could be to be able to do more activities with your family. To remind yourself, you could put a picture of your family on the refrigerator. This will also help you to make a better choice when you decide what to take out of the refrigerator.
Another key to success is getting your family and friends support. This will make your journey more pleasant, and you will achieve results faster. It is essential that your family be on board when it comes to eating healthy meals. If there has to be several meals prepared you will lose incentive to continue.You also want to avoid people who are critical of what you are doing.
One of the most important things that you can do is to tailor your plan to your individual likes and dislikes. This will ensure that you will continue this plan, once you have reached your goal. You want to make sure that your plan includes foods that you love to eat. You will not stick with a plan, where you do not enjoy the menus. The key is to find healthy alternates to the foods that you love. Most of us know that sugar is bad for us, but it is also addictive. To help you ease off of sugar, I am giving a free recipe with a healthy sugar alternative, coconut sugar, when you sign up for my free newsletter. The glycemic index for coconut sugar is 35 compared to table sugar which is 60. It also contains minerals that have been removed from table sugar in the processing stage.
When you sign up for my newsletter, you will learn about all of the components of the essential lifestyle. One of the components is your environment. People sometimes forget that anything that you put on your body, gets inside your body. The skin is the largest organ in the body. Unfortunately, most of the personal care products that you use contain chemicals that are bad for you. To help you find healthy body products, I have provided a link to NYR organics (on the side bar). Their products contain no harmful chemicals.
I hope these suggestions will help you reach your goal, sooner. Remember that the most important point is to be committed. You will be amazed how fast you will achieve success, when you stop making excuses. Here is a story that will encourage you. It is about a woman who was able to get off of her medicine in 3 days, just by changing her diet: http://www.cbn.com/cbnnews/healthscience/2014/February/Dump-Sugar-Eat-Fat-and-Cure-Diabetes/.
