Yesterday morning, I went for an extra long walk and treated myself to an almond milk latte before settling in to work. Mondays sometimes need extra love.
The little things in life (which is ultimately what makes life, right?) are good reasons to celebrate, don’t you think? Even Mondays. Or, getting all green lights on the way to the store, folding a fitted sheet into a perfect square, or having those sticky labels on the bottom of new drinking glasses come off in one peel (that’s the best!).
In a similar way, eating well and developing maintainable, healthy habits are really just the result of baby steps that add up over time. In honor of National Nutrition Month, and this year’s theme, ‘Bite Into a Healthy Lifestyle,’ here are some small ways you can be kind to yourself throughout the day – one bite, sip, step, or thought at a time.
I also recently shared one of my favorite pieces of nutrition advice for National Nutrition Month, alongside colleagues, Anne Mauney, Amaris Bradley, Toby Amidor, Jaclyn London, and Caroline Kaufman, in this YouTube video from CJNutrition (they share their favorite tips, too!). You can check out the video for Bumble Bee Foods here.
If you make it an effort to do one new healthy habit each day, they’ll all add up. How will you be kind to yourself throughout the day? Are there any more you’d like to add to the list? We’d love to hear!
