When a new year ticks over we can find our priorities reshuffle. It’s the wake up call and reality check many of us need. That is why each January you will see gym memberships skyrocket and diets started, all in a bid to “be more healthy” this year. 

While many stick to their newfound routine, many more don’t. In this issue we will explore this a little further and discuss why your focus should be on your health not your weight, and I’ll also share six lifestyle changes that will boost your health and wellbeing and have you feeling great in no time.

Enjoy reading and until next month... Remember to thrive, not just survive!


Why your focus should be on your health not weight

As a society, we tend to equate weight loss with health. But it's just not the case. The truth is you can lose weight without being healthy, and you can be healthy without losing lots of weight. 

So in case you are pinning your hopes and dreams on the next fad diet, here are the reasons to look at the bigger picture and focus on your overall health, not just the scales. Read more… 

Five lifestyle changes to boost your health and wellbeing

1.    Get to bed early - Your body regulates, recovers and detoxes while you are asleep, particularly the key couple of hours before midnight. 

2.    Eat before 8pm - did you know the food you eat after 8pm stays in your digestive tract all night long? This can cause you to wake up feeling heavy, bloated, fuzzy and cranky. 

3.    Breathe deeply - Shallow breaths can deprive our brain, blood and cells of oxygen. This in turn affects our concentration, mood and energy and stress levels. Deep, purposeful breaths are all you need to restore the balance back to your body. 

4.    It’s not what you do 10% of the time that matters - it’s what you do 90% of the time. Eat well for six days per week, and treat yourself (guilt free) on the seventh.

5.    You don’t have to slow down if you don’t want to - but if you want to keep it up you need to support yourself. Make taking care of your physical, mental and emotional health and wellbeing your top priority.

6.    Have an attitude of gratitude – Great things happen all around us every day, even on those bad days you wish would hurry up and be over. This is why it is so important to shift your perspective and look at what you are grateful for. This shift in thinking will ensure you greet every day with a smile.
