At My Nutrition Studio, we are passionate about taking care of your health in the long-term, not just short-term. With this being said, our healthy habits we build must remain consistent. This can get tricky if we don’t have the tools to practice steady self care. We shared a few tools below that can get you thinking--
1) Let the Perfectionism Go
With knowledge and practice, we can allow for flexibility rather than try to eat perfectly. A diet culture mindset around eating perfectly actually makes it more difficult for you to simply eat well because it often puts you in the all-or-nothing mindset. All-or-nothing mindset can lead to “falling off the wagon”, cheat days, and then eventually throwing in the towel.
2) Dismiss Food Rules
Too many food rules can be entirely overwhelming and not appropriate for you! An example of a food rule would be “no carbs for dinner” or “don’t eat after 5pm”. After working with a nutrition professional, you have a better understanding of what you need to do for yourself. Let’s not get distracted by short-term fixes or keeping up with the latest trends.
3) Focus on How you Feel
After practicing wellness routines to better our health, we notice how much better we feel when it’s consistently implemented. Fueling well can support our energy, emotional wellbeing, and clarity. What type of eating habits support the best version of you?
Let us help you put your nutrition foundation into practice! Creating healthy habits to honor your body requires ACTION, and we are here to provide you with ideas and inspiration to support your journey.
