healthy eating Jun 09, 2020

Today we are going to get to learn about a simple way to approach eating healthy.  Usually, when you think about eating healthy it’s all about what you are eating.  Eat more kale!  Eat less ice cream!  But there are lots of other things that can be a part of how you eat healthy.  Including when you eat.

  • Have you ever tried to throw your computer out the window because you forgot to eat breakfast?  
  • Have you ever responded to an email in a way you wish you could take back because you skipped lunch?  
  • Have you ever eaten something unhealthy because you were staring?  Like an entire block of cheese? Or an entire box of Girl Scout Cookies?

I’ve got some ideas to help you reconsider how you approach meal timing.  And of course this episode will include...

#16 Healthy Habits: What Works for YOU?

The amount of health and wellness information that is out there today is insane!  For reals. It’s intense.  Meditating will fix everything.  But also I need to be reading a book every single week. And I need to be taking a HIIT class because so-and-so did it and she loves it.  And I’m sure that there is something new that I’m supposed to be eating and something that I’m not supposed to be eating anymore.

OMG.  I’m tired even talking about it.  But here’s what I used to do.  I would hear about something and then I would be ALL IN. I’d decide that meditation is THE ANSWER.  That it’s the thing I’ve been looking for - without ever considering if it actually works for me.  It’s hilarious.  Sometimes it does work out.  That’s how I found yoga over 20 years ago.  But I’ve also pushed through on plenty of health and wellness things that just weren’t...
