As another year draws to a close, we once again find ourselves planning for a fantastic year ahead. The dawn of a New Year prompts millions of well-meaning, good-intentioned adults to mull their latest lists of resolutions. Resolutions which, in most cases, rarely last beyond the first few weeks of January.
Unfortunately, the challenges that stand between you and the healthy life you crave aren’t going to resolve themselves. Feelings of sluggishness, dissatisfaction with your weight, low energy levels, digestive difficulties – whatever ails you, ignorance is never bliss.
So, why not make 2019 the year you finally tackle things head-on? Instead of putting things off another week, month or year, declare this New Year’s Eve the day you finally take control.
The extent to which a few simple dietary adjustments could change your life is incredible. Contrary to popular belief, a new approach to healthy living doesn’t necessarily mean radically overhauling your diet and lifestyle. Instead, just a few basic changes here and there could add up to an incredible difference.
Best of all, switching to healthier recipes doesn’t have to mean compromising enjoyment!
Our daily nutrient intake determines if and to what extent our bodies are able to perform essential functions. Hence, nutritional discrepancies have the potential to cause or exacerbate a variety of common complaints.
Examples of which include the following:
Fatigue and Energy Slumps
Modern life is hard. As is finding the time to eat a balanced diet and stay active. One of the most common consequences of digestive imbalance is daily fatigue, energy slumps and a general lack of drive. If you’re finding it hard to stay motivated – or even drag yourself out of bed – you might want to consider your current dietary habits.
Who knew food can support our skin? From eczema to acne, millions of adults and children alike suffer from common skin problems. Many of whom are unaware of the extent to which dietary choices perfect the health and radiance of our skin. It’s often said that beauty starts from within – something that rings true with dietary balance.
For some, weight loss and careful weight management represent the ultimate goal for the new year ahead. Nevertheless, making the necessary dietary adjustments isn’t easy. Willpower alone isn’t enough, as it’s important to know exactly what you should and shouldn’t be eating, along with appropriate quantities, timings, accompanying exercise and so on.
For a helping hand this New Year, why not consult with a qualified nutritional therapist?
Nutritional therapy is a holistic approach to identifying nutritional imbalances and triggers, in order to support the body towards achieving optimum health.
As a Nutritional Therapist based in Hale, Cheshire, I am fascinated by the power of food on the body. Over the years I have had the pleasure of helping hundreds of clients take responsibility for their health through nutritional education. From fatigue to skin problems, and migraines to optimal sports performance, our dietary choices often make all the difference.
So this New Year’s Eve, let’s celebrate a new approach to healthy living together!
