Spring Cleaning your Health Habits

Spring is right around the corner 

While new years is the time we make resolutions regarding our health, spring may be a better time to make a resolution that you can actually keep. As the winter passes, it is important to focus on getting our bodies out of the winter slump and into shape so that we can enjoy the colors of spring and the opportunities of summer.

Let’s focus on two important elements of a spring-season health plan:

Setting a goal is the best way to set yourself up for success in spring.

  • Create a fitness goal and be realistic: fitness trackers say 10,000 steps a day but does that really apply to you? Perhaps 10,000 steps is above or below your threshold, but the essential idea is that you set a goal that will get you out in spring. And for people who don’t know where to start, walking is a great idea. 10,000 steps can be achieved in about 30 minutes of walking, so it can hardly hurt! 
  • Find healthy food that you love: spring and summer are the seasons of abundance, especially when it comes to produce. I don’t think there’s a single person alive who can justifiably claim to hate fruit. Try shooting to eat 1-2 pieces of fruit per day and refine your fat-intake: focus on ditching bad fats and taking on the good ones. Cooking with coconut and olive oil in place of canola oil is a good place to start!
