That’s right friends, something new on the blog today. Let’s talk about health and wellness.

Food, our well being, and all that jazz is something we talk about from time to time on this lil’ corner of the internet. Here’s the deal, I’m not here to critique your own eating. I’m here to let ya’ know where I’m at and what’s working for me.

Let’s do this whole life thing together.

Life includes what we put in our bodies and how we fuel them, so here we are.

I’m not about to tell you what you should and should not eat or how many times a week you should be working out because truly, I’m just a girl trying to survive and nourish my body. Let’s be real here, I’m NO health guru.

So, why am I sharing this? Simply because this site is to have conversations, so let’s do just that.

Here are 5 small changes that 2019 has brought me, I hope they encourage you in some small way!

  1. Manage your time wisely

    • We oftentimes don’t realize how out of order our priorities are.

    • Time and time again, I catch myself scrolling through Instagram rather than reading a good book, doing a quick workout, or doing anything that actually fuels my soul.

    • Realign those priorities and make the things that matter remain at the top of your list.

  2. Slowly but surely do your research on nutrition.

    • When it comes to the classic “It’s the new year, let’s get healthy” thing, we all tend to assume that means changing everything about anything we have ever eaten.

    • You don’t need to boycott all donuts forever (you know I love a good donut), however maybe make some changes to opt for healthier items every now and then.

    • In all reality, our bodies are all different, do some research and get to know what your body actually needs to remain fueled.

  3. Don’t do life alone.

    • Having a team of people cheering you on and encouraging you in life, wellness, nutrition, and all things in between is essential to staying motivated.

    • Seek out accountability partners, mentors, and friends that you could trust.

    • Where do you find these people? Attend a church, go to a fitness class, find likeminded people.

  4. Organize, organize, organize.

    • I don’t about you, but my stress is a whole lot less heightened when the physical area around me isn’t complete chaos. Get rid of the clutter when you can and slowly but surely live with less.

  5. Start eliminating toxins in your household.

    • Friends, our lives are LOADED with chemicals.

    • Swap items in your house (air fresheners, all purpose cleaners, makeup) for a natural version and you will begin to see a difference in the way you feel.

    • Break out good ole’ Pinterest and do a little DIY with some essential oils to make things that aren’t filled with chemicals!

These 5 tips are not meant to change your life overnight. As usual, I want to remind you that I am no professional at this whole life thing. What I have been learning is that no ones nutrition and wellness begins with one drastic diet, yet one small and sustainable change after the other.
