Easing Into a Healthy Spring

We’re doing Extreme Spring Cleaning at my house this year as we prepare to move out of the home we have lived in for 23 years! (We are renovating.)  Like any big job, we are breaking it down into smaller tasks to keep it manageable and preserve our sanity!  It’s like that with health goals too – it’s difficult to work on everything at the same time and not experience overwhelm.  And some days we’re just able to do more than other days.

A few days ago, while trying to check some packing off my list,  I had to employ a strategy I sometimes use with my coaching clients.  While the ideal is to do the task you dread the most first and just do it for a shorter period of time, the ideal was eluding me that day and doing nothing was calling my name!  When you just can’t get yourself going, try picking something easy that still moves you forward. I picked “pocket books” – a modest undertaking that I was able to knock off quickly.  I don’t have a lot of emotion wrapped up in my handbags and I don’t own very many so separating some for donation and packing the ones I am keeping was a lot easier than facing one of the scary boxes in my basement.

When it comes to changing our diets we often have a lot of resistance.  Food is more than fuel for most of us and there is a lot of emotion wrapped up in our food.  Committing to exercising more can also feel like a steep climb.  That doesn’t mean we should just let ourselves off the hook but it helps to have a list of “easy things” that keep us moving toward our health goals.

What helps you move the needle on your health goals while still feeling easy?

To help you ease into a healthy Spring…here are 5 Easy Health Boosters that don’t involve food or exercise!
