It’s difficult to keep a lifestyle energized by healthy foods if your surroundings suck.
You can try to keep your portions reasonable, design a menu centered around whole foods, or cut sweets from your diet, but if the forces around you hiss and scowl and wear you down, then you’re likely to reach for comfort, either in the shape of larger portions or processed foods or an entire package of Oreos.
Is your boss a drag? This might just be the pressure that sets ya over the edge. Is your job stressing you out to the point of driving your fingernails into your arm? Are you tossing and turning at night, unable to sleep? Is there that one friend who’s not really a friend and more of a pile of barf that needs to be cleaned up by you on a regular basis?
Enter what some call Primary Food, the essentials in your life that contribute to positive energy.
Many of us, on our quest to become healthier (whatever that means) focus on the food part and the exercise part, which are important parts to healthy living, no doubt. However, it will be very difficult for you to remain committed to a particular food diet if there are negative distractions orbiting around you, annoyingly poking at your head like an older brother in the back of the car.
If you’re finding it difficult to carry on with that healthy New Year’s resolution, than take a moment to evaluate the world around you. Perhaps there is another change that needs to be tweaked.
