We all know the basics. Let me be honest when I say that when I start to feel yucky, and I go over my pillars, I've been neglecting one or two of them for a while. So first of all, be honest with yourself on these. Secondly, Rome wasn't built in a day, but it was built eventually.

  1. Drink your water. Be mindful about this. It takes time to cultivate the habit of drinking water.

  2. Plan your meals for the day. When you see them in your mind's eye, are they colourful? Swap out some of the less colourful ingredients with more colourful ones (this does not mean you can replace the sandwich with jelly tots HAHAHA) Natural colours mean that the food was this colour when it was harvested. Swap a potato for a red and yellow bell pepper medley for instance.

  3. Not many people can do 100% sticking-to-it-ness for a 100% of the time. Allow yourself a treat when you feel like it. One treat a day at most, until you can decrease the frequency. Plan your treat: make sure it's a worthy treat, pick it, pack it, go sit down, savour every bite and enjoy it. No distracted eating.

There are three points in this post. It doesn't sound like a lot, but there are studies that show if you attempt to change too many things at once, chances are none of them will stick. Pick the one that worries you the most or that you feel will be the easiest to implement. After 21 days (because this is how long it takes to form a new habit) you can pick the next one.

I'll say it again, nobody said your KPI was to have Rome built by Christmas. If you put that on your list, it's yours to own. The best homes have solid foundations and take time and patience and care to build properly. Your body is that home. Take the time and patience and care you need to build a solid foundation of health and wellness.

Let me know which one you pick and also feel free to ask for help if you battle to implement one of them. Ask for advice, post a question, share your experience. We're here to help and support you.
