- I'm with my family skiing the Tetons today, but I hope everyone who's getting buried with snow on the east coast is safe and enjoying their snowdays!
What are your proven stress reduction techniques?
There's always someone who is doing more, who is prettier, thinner, smarter, wealthier and it's very easy to get caught up in that. But there's also someone who's not as smart, not as attractive. So what? If you understand that things can be important without being serious, then you don't take yourself so seriously. Then it's easier to not compare. If you focus on living your best life, It's really impossible to get caught up in the comparisons.
Actually carrots in general. But Baby Carrots are great when you're on the run and need a veggie fix. They're wayyyy better than reaching for a pack of Doritos or Funyuns! That's why I'm so ecstatic about their new marketing campaign-"eat em like junk food"-Genius!!
Food marketing is only 2nd to the auto industry in number of dollars spent on advertising, and the vast majority of that going to complete junk, I fully support a change from only McDonalds to something more healthful.
#Eatem like you just got paid.
Some say baby carrots give you vision like an eagle. Maybe that’s because we’re the snack of freedom.
Never trust a snack that can live forever. #twinkies
Do you like baby carrots?? What do you think of this marketing campaign?
So let's give thanks!!
My 'how to eat healthy at the holidays' guide = allow yourself your favorite foods in moderation & listen to your internal hunger cuesFind how to have a Balanced & Healthy Thanksgiving on Rebecca Scritchfield's blog.
“A diet high in fruits and vegetables helps maintain a healthy weight and
reduces the risk of several serious, chronic diseases. We need to continue
our effort in making the healthy choice the easy choice.”
Fruits and vegetables are cancer fighters, heart protectors, and just plain delicious. And as Joan Salge-Blake RD, always says, “They’ll fill you UP before they fill you OUT.” I'm a self-proclaimed vegetable junkie, and it breaks my little heart to see them left off of other people's plates!
What's your favorite way to eat your fruits and vegetables?
For my health and wellness, I want to put myself first this holiday season. This year will be different. I am going to take care of myself during this busy (sometimes hectic) time. If that means asking for help, saying “no”, or scheduling “down time,” I will do it. I’m done being overcommitted.
My well-being is my priority. The goals below reflect the healthiest ways I know how to meet my own needs.
Goal 1: I will dedicate 20 minutes of every day for “me” time. This can not be in front of a screen-I will use this time to read a book for pleasure, collage, or meditate.
Goal 2: I will get 7-8 hours of sleep every night.
Goal 3: I will incorporate more yoga into my workouts, for balance, flexibility and peace of mind.
