Often, the task of losing weight seems like so much work you might think it is impossible. But it’s not! In fact, sometimes some small, almost insignificant changes can add up to big changes in your weight and health. If you are someone who is resistant to change yet you know you need to make improvements in the way you live, small changes might be your best approach to healthy weight loss. Baby steps might take you longer to reach your goal than if you dive in head first and make huge changes to your diet and exercise schedule. But you can still get there by taking baby steps.
In the long run you have to be honest with yourself. If you make drastic changes, will those changes stick over the long term or are you more likely to rebound back to your old ways? If the latter is true for you, then you should try to slowly develop good habits by making small yet productive changes that don’t excessively impact your usual routine. Once those changes have become habit (and this can take some time) you can make more small changes and get more benefits from those changes.
Some small changes that can add up to big improvements in your weight and health include:
• Drink more Water
• Reduce Stress
• Get better Sleep
• Weight-bearing Exercise
• Increase your Activity Level
• Be mindful of your Beverages
• Test and fix your sluggish Metabolism
• Listen for more!
In this podcast we will discuss each of these changes and how they impact your ability to lose weight. We will also show you some easy ways to start implementing these changes into your daily routine with very little effort. This could be the start of something big for you.
