There are many things that we can do to improve our overall health. When it comes to our physical health, we can start by cooking more at home and teaching our children to only eat when they are hungry. It’s also important to have a balanced nutrition profile as well as a good variety of foods to eat. We also should be doing exercise like stretching, walking and/or biking as it will help improve our mood. Finally, try to have a positive attitude as that attitude will rub off on your children and allow them to see life in a more positive way.
- Provide your kids with healthy snacks, and teach them to eat when only when they are truly hungry.
- Keeping a journal of your food and daily activities can help you understand what changes to make.
- People often eat because they are upset or bored — not because they are truly hungry.
“When unhealthy food choices lead to weight gain, some people turn to popular diets to achieve quick weight loss. Diets usually tell you what you should or should not eat. Instead, focus on understanding why you eat in the first place.”
