New Year, New Vision, New You
Live Your Most Fulfilled Life
As you ring in the New Year, what thoughts and feelings are front of mind for you? Are you making resolutions and setting goals and intentions for the coming year? 2020 was a challenging year, however, if you pause and reflect, you may find some good silver linings.
What are you most looking forward to this year? For me, it’s the new RNA vaccine, offering hope for an end to the COVID-19 pandemic, and personally cultivating more self-compassion and soon becoming a grandmother!
In this new year, it’s important to make clear your mission and purpose and hone in on the areas of wellness that mean the most to you and that give you the most joy. Spending time creating a Vision MAP of where you want to go is the first important step in laying the foundation of getting to where you ultimately want to be in life.
Whether you want to take one step to improve your health (such as starting a mindfulness practice or cutting back on sweets) or want to completely revamp your lifestyle, it ALL begins by uncovering what makes you feel most alive, and by leveraging that as motivation to take action.
Here’s a prompt that can help you get started in articulating your vision:
Identify what you truly love in life and how you want to be in life.
Carve out a few minutes to quietly contemplate this and journal what comes to you. It’s important to note that there are no right or wrong “answers” to this. Whatever ideas or thoughts that bubble up are valid and worth writing down! These are often messages from your unconscious mind that can be used as valuable fuel to help you stay connected and achieve your deepest desires.
My Favorite Expert Tip One of my favorite nutrition tips
Eat two- three meals a day, minimize snacking.
By eating satiating meals instead of snacking between meals, you’re basically doing a mini-fast between meals and training your body to burn fat for fuel.
A widely popularized theory to stabilize blood sugar is to eat 5–6 small meals throughout the day. But that theory has its problems…. When your body is being fed every 2–3 hours, it will not be encouraged to burn any of its stored fat for energy. If it’s being fed constantly, it simply won’t bother going to your fat stores for energy. However, when you eat 3 meals a day and have ample time between meals, your body is forced to burn stored fat. Once fat is restored as an active fuel supply, you’ll enjoy the benefits of increased energy, more stable moods, greater mental clarity, better sleep, fewer cravings, and natural—permanent weight management.
