The Real Cost of “Free Food”

There are many variations to this story – perhaps it’s free samples at the grocery store or an abundance of different food at a party.  In the case of “free food,” the mind often defaults to how great the opportunity is.  However, in choosing “free food,” you may find that in exchange you are giving up something- perhaps sabotaging your commitment to your health goals or just that feeling of vitality.  In my case, I found myself feeling sluggish after all my “free food fun” in Costa Rica.

So how can we make more conscious decisions that best serve us?  The first step is to bring awareness and learning to the situation.  

The Magic of Yes - Committing to your Best Health in 2017

I love the New Year!  It calls many of us to slow down to reflect on the past year’s challenges and triumphs and define what new changes and experiences we would like to have in 2017.

So first, my dear reader, let’s take some time for reflection and intention setting:

What is it that you have learned in the past year? How is it that you have grown?  What did you accomplish?  What are you most proud of?  What will you carry forward from this year into 2017?  What are your intentions for your health and other parts of your life in 2017?  What are you ready to change in 2017?

How ready are you to renew and/or dedicate your time and energy to your health this year?
