Is getting healthy too hard?

Okay so kale may be too far, but what else could you add to your everyday meals?

One small change every week can make a bigger difference than you may realise… it doesn’t have to be hard!

Many people today live under the false assumption that being healthy is a hard process of total, monk-like devotion that requires you to give up everything you enjoy in life i.e. pizza and beer. Besides, what’s the point in giving up pizza if you’re never going to exercise because the gym is the last place you feel like spending an hour of your day? The good news is that improving your life by getting healthier isn’t all-or-nothing.

Making a complete lifestyle change overnight for most people isn’t realistic. Humans don’t like doing anything that is difficult unless we really have to. So, if you want to avoid a ‘have to’ in the form of a health crisis, let’s make getting healthy easy and not harder than it has to be.

You will find that adding healthy practices is easier than denying yourself unhealthy things that you enjoy. One of the healthiest things you can ever do is eat more raw fruit and vegetables.

That means keep eating the pizza that you love but with every meal add a serve of fruit or vegetable. Choose one that is comfortable and easy to eat and make sure you eat it. It could be grapes, a carrot, an apple or kale (too far?). If this is the only change you make for the rest of the year you will be significantly healthier. Don’t look down on small beginnings; every journey begins with one small step.

To Your Greatest Health!
