Every day, we make decisions that affect the way our bodies work. Not sitting right at your desk all day can damage your back and shoulders. Staring at that computer screen for too long might affect your vision or give you headaches. The many decisions that you make about the things you put in your mouth probably show the most noticeable, even tangible effects on your body–effects that you don’t want to show off on the beaches of Miami. Drastic cutbacks might work for a little while, but old habits will most likely creep back in, adding back the pounds you lost.
It doesn’t have to be that way, though. Decide to make changes, little by little, until they become the norm. It’s a psychological game of mind over matter where you can train your brain to accept new and healthier habits bit by bit until they just become a part of who you are. No need to take on the full impact and stress that comes with a strict diet. Take it piece by piece until you find where you’ve always wanted to be and you feel confident being and staying there.
