Momentum for a Healthy Life by Cathy Vega, Holistic Health Coach
A Few of My Favorite Tips for Staying Healthy this Summer
~ Start your day on a Positive Note - use your gratitude journal and/or meditate.
~ Eat a balanced, protein rich breakfast - try new recipes!
~ Good old H2O. Drink plenty of water throughout the day. Don't wait to get dehydrated before you hydrate.
~ Exercise and get your Sweat On! Do what you love and switch it up!
~ Do not grocery shop when you're hungry - you may let unhealthy foods sneak into your basket.
~ Visit your local farmers market for fresh, local foods. Pick up lots of colorful produce and organic, free-range eggs and meat.
~ Whip up healthy summer salads with seasonal produce.
~ Include Good Mood Foods in your meals - omega 3-fats, B Vitamins, Folate and Fiber.
~ Get Quality Sleep - 7-9 hours per night. You will wake feeling energized!
~ Manage Stress - self care is critical. Make time for a massage, facial or mani/pedi.
~ Limit sweets - decide on one dessert you want for that special occasion and savor it.
~ Limit alcohol/wine - allow yourself one drink on that special occasion and drink lots of water afterwards.
~ Embrace family and friends. Cultivate authentic connection with those you love.
