The Small Changes

Well, I just got back in town from a conference in DC and I actually learned some new ways of healthy eating. One day of the conference I got to listen to a Certified Holistic Health Counselor who advocates organic foods, fruits, vegetables, exercise, and good health as a way not only to cleanse your body physically, but as a way to do away with emotional stress as well and make you a happier person. A number of the things that that health counselor had to say stuck with me enough to bring home and start trying to see if my mood will be better and my disposition brighter by following her advice.

I'm incorporating more fiber, fruits, and green vegetables into my meals instead of just one or two pieces of fruit a day. I'm also going to actually eat a good breakfast now instead of just grabbing a cup of coffee. Instead of eating while standing and on the run, I'm going to sit down at the table with my kids, a glass of water, and a healthy dish, and eat instead of devour my meal. Hopefully these small changes will lead to bigger and better changes in my life and health down the road.
