Improving Health: Just Choose One Thing

make healthy choicesWe have become a microwave society – we want everything done in a matter of seconds! Unfortunately when it comes to your health, what took you years to create in your body, will take time to reverse. You can’t eat junk food every day, never exercise and stay up til all hours of the night and expect to feel your best! If you do this and end up overweight and perhaps battling diabetes, are you surprised? If you are, you are not being realistic. You do reap what you sow! It may take years and usually does but I believe that’s just an indication of the mercy and grace of God! How many opportunities to turn things around have you ignored or wasted?

Ok, now let’s talk about choosing one powerful thing to begin doing that can really make a huge difference and perhaps turn things completely around. I don’t know what your habit is but here are my top three that can begin changing your health for the better and fairly quickly.

#1 is to eat real food. That means fresh, whole, clean, nutrient-dense foods like well raised and processed meat and poultry, organic produce and dairy if you eat it. Think one-ingredient foods like beef, chicken, lettuce, apples, tomatoes, zucchini, beans, fish and berries. You get the idea. Foods that don’t come in a box or through a drive-thru window. Ones you cook from scratch.

#2 Begin reducing your intake of sugar and wheat. This will impact you on so many levels! Not only will you find it easier to lose weight, but you will also notice joint pain decreasing as well as cholesterol and blood sugar levels normalizing. Begin gradually by eliminating one serving a day. This can improve your health in as little as 10 days!

#3 Begin replacing any other beverages you drink throughout the day (coffee shop coffee, sodas, bottled juices) with clean water. You can have your morning coffee or tea as long as they’re not loaded with sugar, artificial sweetener or creamers. But after that, begin adding in water until you are drinking 1/2 your body weight in ounces daily and include 1/4 tsp. natural, unprocessed salt for every 32 oz. You will be amazed at the increase in energy, improvement in your skin, mood and joints.

Choose one and begin gradually adding that new habit into your daily routine. Don’t rush – it’s not a race, but don’t give up. Keep it simple and keep moving forward day by day and I predict this can be your best, healthiest year ever.

    Ann, these are great tips. As we sow new seeds of health we’ll eventually reap the reward after they have time to germinate and bear fruit!

    Great tips, Ann. I’ve heard other people talk about salt in water but have not tried it. I’ll give it a shot next time I need a boost.

      I think you’ll be surprised Holly. We are told to cut salt but we need the right amount of salt in order for the water to hydrate us and it, of course, has to be natural, unprocessed salt. I suggested this to my son when he was playing college baseball. He wasn’t sure he’d like it. He was shocked at how much more energy he had and he actually got to the point where he didn’t like the water without salt!

  3. Excellent suggestions, and I can testify that changing just one thing at a time does make a difference. Recently, I’ve been making cashew milk to replace the dairy milk in our coffee. I notice a difference in how I feel throughout the day, and I love the taste!

      Absolutely Kathryn – baby steps are always the best way to go! Cashew milk is my favorite non-dairy milk as well. I’m glad you can tell a difference already. Too many people make a change and expect to see results immediately. We also have to be patient and consistent and stick with one simple change for a period of time before we try and add another and then progress becomes more noticeable!
