Happy Motivation Monday!
It’s no surprise that January is a great month for those of us in health-related fields. I’ve been filling up with speaking events and workshops for January already, because the organizers know that people will want to hear about health and nutrition at the beginning of the New Year. The holidays are filled with occasions to eat, and many people leave the holiday season feeling bloated and lethargic. Even though the average person only puts on a pound or two during the holiday season, the Huffington Post says that “most Americans who gain weight between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Eve generally don’t lose that weight ever again.” One or two pounds per year can really add up over time!
Now, you must be wondering … it’s October. Am I trying to outdo the drug stores and department stores, which will no doubt be putting up holiday decorations soon (way too early, in my opinion!).
No, I’m not. Instead, I want to encourage you to prioritize your health NOW. Why wait until January to prioritize health when you could do it today? Those of us in the Fall Reset are halfway through and feeling great, just by focusing on clean, whole foods. You, too, can make an effort to focus on whole foods, start an exercise plan, or get in the habit of drinking more water TODAY … so that a little bit of indulgence over the holiday season doesn’t leave you feeling down.
So tell me in the comments … What can you do for your health TODAY?
