One of the best things about quarantine (in my humble opinion) is the time for self reflection and self-improvement!
I've been taking more time to read, get creative and figure out how to slow down. The book Self-Compassion by Kristin Neff, PhD, has been fantastic!!
Something I have working on during the forced slow down is being nice to myself . It's helping me enjoy my days more, not beat myself up for dietary "slip ups" (while still losing weight), and helping my business grow!
What has the best thing about quarantine been for you?
There's an easy way out.....hide in front of the TV, on social media. But when this is over, because it will end...
How will you be better for it?
Will you have grown?
Become better because of this challenge?
There are so many ways to use this challenge to your advantage! To use this time wisely (and that doesn't mean you can't watch Netflix!).
How can you use this time to become better, learn something new, create something awesome?!
There are so many ways!
The opportunities are endless during this time of self exploration....
When buying ingredients at the grocery store the thought of what products are actually in season doesn't cross most people's minds. But, eating seasonally is SOOO important for your health!!
Your body is programmed to eat what is growing around you based on the weather.
Choosing local farmers (try the farmers market!), shopping the seasonal produce (usually it's found in bulk and at great prices!), and basing your menus on what is in season (which is exactly how we build our menus!) is a crucial step in living a healthy life. :)
