Does your health feel better or worse than last year?
If you’ve made progress in 2022, well done.
If you’re still thinking about it making a change, that’s good too.
January is the perfect time to get ready to make a change for the better.
While many of you have joined the Wellness Cohort in January to start rejuvenating your mindset, meals and metabolism already, it’s ok if you haven’t come up with a plan yet.
Before you get discouraged that you haven’t started working out and eating healthier, consider this advice from Atomic Habits author, James Clear.
“First, there is no reason to get down on yourself if you try something for a few weeks and it doesn’t become a habit. It’s supposed to take longer than that! There is no need to judge yourself if you can’t master a behavior in 21 short days…Embrace the long, slow walk to greatness and focus on putting in your reps.” https://jamesclear.com/new-habit
When we decide to make changes, it takes hundreds of NEW decisions. And that is hard for our brain! It has to “rewire” old, comfy decisions it has already made before and create new pathways. Then it has to decide if the reward is great enough to overcome the the pain of making a new habit. That’s why mindset is foundational to my clients success in my nutrition practice!
If your goal is to eat healthier and lose weight in 2023, focus on getting ready for change.
Here are my top 5 tips that will make health changes easier:
Simplify your supplements
A clean fridge

Make a meal rhythm instead of a “plan” or "meal prepping"
