Leaving junky, highly-processed food on the shelf instead of having it in your kitchen or office makes it easier to resist it when a craving hits or we are tired and hungry.
We eat what is convenient and what we see, so putting healthy foods at eye-level in the fridge and keeping a fruit bowl on the counter or nuts in your desk drawer or glove box are simple steps that add up to a healthy difference.
Few people achieve a perfectly balanced diet, but focusing on getting it ‘right’ about 85% of the time on a consistent basis will lead to improvements in health and longevity. You'll feel it daily in your energy and even see it in the tone of your skin.
When you fall short of the 85%, adjust your sails to quickly get back on track. Too often, our failures grab our focus like a magnet and send us spiraling downward with an ‘I’ll never be perfect, so why bother’ mentality.
As I encourage my coaching clients, 'Aim for B' in your progress. That B also stands for balance.
To your good health!
