Take Your Measurements

If the scale causes dismay, ignore it. Take 3 simple measurements: around your chest, the smallest portion of your waist, and around a thigh.

Write them down, and don’t look at them again for 30 days when you measure again.

A small mental note that you would like to be thinner and in better shape will help you make good choices between measurements.


Commit to a Regular Bed Time

Lack of sleep has been linked to many disease processes.

The most common cause of sleeplessness is a lack of a sleep-healthy routine.
Set a time that you want to be asleep. An hour before your sleep time, turn of all electronics.

Getting rid of the LED lights and stimulus will help you wind down.

Read a good book. Take a warm bath. Be alone with your thoughts.


Take Good Care of your Gut

If you experience gut troubles, think about the following 4 foods that have a positive probiotic effect:
kombucha tea
kimchi (spicy Korean cabbage)
kefir (a tart milk drink)

What Can You Do Today to Make Yourself Healthier?

Don’t make huge sweeping New Year’s Resolutions, pick something simple and commit to it for 30 days.

Anything you can do for 30 days will become a habit.
