DAY 11: ADD HEALTHY INGREDIENTS TO YOUR DRINKS

“It is health that is real wealth and not silver and gold.” ~Mahatma Gandhi

TODAY, try going out of your comfort zone, and add a healthy boost to your daily fluids. Freshly squeezed lemon is a great citrus boost that aids in clearing up the skin and stimulating your digestive system. Apple cider vinegar is another great addition you can experiment with adding to your water. It’s wonderful addition to warm water and is highly alkalizing to the body. Cayenne will give your morning smoothie or tea a kick, plus it can help boost your metabolism!

Try adding a dash of these ingredients to your drink, then check in to see how your body feels later in the day.

DAY 10: EAT LESS SUGAR

“If you keep good food in your fridge, you’ll eat good food.”
~Erick McAdams

There’s something sinister about sugar. Our bodies often confuse common deficiencies, such as water or protein, with sugar cravings, so we end up choosing unhealthy sugar-filled snacks to compensate. Unfortunately, sugar is one of the worst things we can ever put in our bodies. It alters our internal chemistry, leaving us in a haze and our internal sense of what is healthy skewed.

TODAY, take stock of which foods in your refrigerator contain the most sugar. Then stop eating them! Seek out sweeteners like stevia, coconut sugar, xylitol, maple syrup and unprocessed honey. Even these sugars must be used in moderation though. They’re the ones that won’t make your head spin.

DAY 9: EAT YOUR GREENS

“Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live.” ~Jim Rohn

It’s amazing how good vegetables are for your body. They’re packed with vitamins, and the denser and leafier they are, the better they are for your body. But unfortunately, so many of us don’t get enough vegetables in our diet. It’s such an easy way to improve our health!

TODAY, try to incorporating more vegetables into your diet. It can be as easy as adding more vegetables to your plate. Green smoothies are another easy way to incorporate vegetables into your diet on a daily basis. It many seem new and weird, but you’ll definitely feel the difference.

DAY 8: CREATE A MINDSET FOR CHANGE

“We cannot become what we want by remaining where we are.” ~Max de Pree

We’ve said it before: Your mindset is unbelievably essential to your success. Negative thinking can only harm you when you’re looking to alter or improve your life. If we want to change, we have to be ready to change from the mind out!

TODAY, try adopting a mantra to inform the kind of changes you want to see for yourself. It can be as simple as, “I am healthy, happy, and successful.” Then, just repeat it as often as you need until it fully sinks in. I promise, it will start to get to you in the best way.

Day 7: CREATE AN ENVIRONMENT FOR CHANGE

“We make the world we live in and shape our own environment.” ~Orison Swett Marden

Would you say that you live in an environment that enables success? If you have to think about it first, the answer is probably no. This could be a critical reason why your goals haven’t been fully met in the past. Our environment influences nearly everything about how long we stay motivated to achieve our goals.

TODAY, take one step toward making your environment more conducive to success, this could be buying fresh foods at the grocery store, joining a support group, or just clearing out all the junk in your office or home. There’s so much you can do to support through your environment. Don’t hesitate; take action today!

Day 6: LIMIT TIME WITH NEGATIVE PEOPLE

“Protect your spirit from contamination.” ~Thelma Davis

Can you think of anyone in your life who just, no matter what, tends to be a downer? These negative people often unknowingly find themselves dragging the people around them down. Even if they love you, a negative person will not help you achieve your goals. Your happiness is not their top priority. More often than not, they won’t be happy until everyone around them is as defeated as they feel. That’s where the saying, “Misery loves company” comes from.

Today, pay attention to how you feel when you’re around certain people in your life. What emotions come up for you? What reactions come most easily? Don’t be afraid to distance yourself from these people, whether that means eating lunch in a new place or taking a different route home. Try not to look at it as “being mean” when doing this. Instead, consider it an opportunity to make positive, empowering choices for yourself that move you closer to your goals.
