The days are lengthening, the temperatures are warming, and the ice is melting. Winter layers are being pushed to the back of the closet and people are slowly emerging from their winter hibernation. More fresh vegetables like asparagus and various greens are in season and have better flavor and lower cost. Spring is the best time to recommit to your health and wellness goals!
Did you make a new year’s resolution and find you didn’t keep it? That doesn’t mean you’ve failed! A lapse in your healthy habits is a great opportunity to learn about yourself, what strategies really worked for you, and which ones need to be adjusted. No one sticks to all of their plans all of the time. The key is to pay attention to lapses, or brief slip-ups, and change them before they turn into relapses.
Revisit Your Goals:
Take a minute to reflect on the vision you saw in January. Was it realistic? Maybe you said you would eat perfectly proportioned Lean and Green Meals every single day of the year, only to find that after a hard day at work, with the kids waving their homework at you, it was too big of a leap to go from frozen lasagna to a perfect spaghetti squash lasagna. What would be more realistic? Perhaps a simpler lean and green that has fewer steps to prepare on a weeknight.
Don’t Go It Alone:
