Only I can change my life. No one can do it for me - Carol Burnett
I was on Facebook recently, as one is, and there was a post from a lady wanting to know how to lose weight.
And the answers were various - eat less, exercise more, cut out white foods, stop eating carbs, drink lemon water, stop drinking alcohol and the suggestions went on.
And at the end of the day the lady will need to decide to take action so that sh can begin to change.
Three words - Decide - Action - Begin
My question to you is what change do you want to see in your life?
Go ahead and make a list -
Which on from your list will you choose to start with?
What action will you take?
If you dont know what you need to do next, how will you find out?
Say it is a feeling of sluggishness you want to change.
What can you do first?
Drink 8 large glasses of water per day?
Go to bed by 10pm every night?
Add more vegetables to your menu?
Start walking or join a group or make a group?
Choose 1 action and S T A R T.
And keep track of it.
Everyone likes to see the circles filling, the starts added, the X .
When you track it then you see daily progress.
And that is how you begin to change your life.
For some just the tracker can make a huge difference but for others who can't stick to the plan, I Can Help You.
Because there are people just like you who need to report back to someone. I Am That Someone.
Why not book a Strategy Session with me? Together we can work out what you want to change, how you're going to change and BEGIN.
Do you eat fish regularly?
Generally speaking, all fish is good for you. They provide us with a high quality protein and important vitamins and minerals.
Fatty fish are even better for you.
Here in South Africa, fatty fish include salmon, East Coast Sole, Yellowtail, snoek, sardines and pilchards.
Fatty fish have a high amount of omega 3 fatty acids.
Omega 3s are vital to your brain and bodily functions. They also contain vitamin D which many people can be deficient in even though we live in a sunny country.
If you're looking to maintain a healthy heart, eating fish 1 - 2 times a week can lower your risk of heart attacks and strokes.
Omega 3 essential fatty acids are very important for growth and development, particularly of hte brain and eyes.
As we age cognitive function can decline. But eating fish helps to maintain grey matter and reduce the decline and deterioration of grey matter.
Grey matter is important for controlling memory and emotions.
Eating fish and using omega 3 supplements can be of benefit for depression.
Because the fatty acids help to feed and nourish the grey matter which as already mentioned is responsible for controlling emotions. I understand however, that there is much more to depression than simply eating fish to alleviate it.
Omega 3s and fish can help to reduce triglyceride levels and increase good cholesterol which is good for your heart health.
On the eye front, eating fish and omega 3s helps to protect your eyes against macular degeneration. This causes blurred vision or less sight.
They are so commom that we think it's normal not to sleep well. Eating fatty fish can lead to improved sleep because it is a good source of vitamin D which helps your body.
And eating it just once or twice a week has a lot of health benefits.
Don't limit yourself to thinking of eating it just for supper.
You can have fish with your lunches too.
Try adding it to your salads and roasted vegetables.
Or in the morning with scrambled eggs or avo.
Don't like fish but want the benefits?
