If you’re feeling ten years older than you really are, then it might be time to take a look at your health.
Business owners are highly susceptible to going all-in on their business and putting everything else on the backburner. At some point, it all catches up! This means less energy, brain fog, and weight gain as well as general discomfort in your body.
Luckily, you have the power to change how you feel, and it doesn’t have to be difficult!
We had the pleasure of sitting down with Laura Kleber, a holistic health coach. She has always had a passion for teaching and helping others find solutions. After struggling with stress and the pressure of building her DIY home décor business, Laura found that she had put her health to the wayside. This led her to focus on her health and inspired her to take her desire to teach others to live better lives with more energy, clarity, and abundance.
This week, Laura gives us her best tips for regaining your energy, clearing your mind, and getting your health on track so you can call in more prosperity in your life.
Eat Organic Whenever Possible
Organic and locally grown foods are the best for your overall health. They lack pesticides and chemicals which affect your hunger levels. Chemicals like emulsifiers will stimulate hunger hormones and suppress our satiety hormones.
While Laura agrees that eating organic foods is best, she acknowledges the financial aspect. It isn’t possible for everyone to switch everything they eat to organic foods. In this case, take baby steps. Do the best you can by putting nutritional foods into your body even if they aren’t organic.
Know Your Temptations
You’ll never be able to get away from it forever, but putting barriers in place to limit your interactions with it will help you achieve your goals.
For example, if you know you’re an all-or-nothing person when it comes to sweets like cake and can’t eat it in moderation, do your best to limit temptations by not hovering around it at a party or keep it in your house.
Eat Before You Go Grocery Shopping or Attend a Party
It’s easy to overindulge when you’re starving. Going to places like the grocery store or a party where food is widely available means you’re more tempted to grab everything you can instead of making thoughtful decisions. Make sure you don’t shop on an empty stomach, and eat something light before attending a party so you aren’t binging on snacks.
Surround Yourself with Supportive People
In order to stay on track, you need to surround yourself with people who support your goals. Even if it’s only your coach! Having someone who can cheer you on and encourage you will keep you motivated and on the path to achieving your health goals.
Get the Tools You Need
A health journey isn’t just about losing weight or making better choices, but it comes with an educational aspect that many people don’t expect. Once you start to make baby steps toward your progress, you start to realize old coping mechanisms. This often puts your reasons for why you’re getting healthy into the spotlight. You need tools to sustain your progress.
It’s often harder to stay in optimal health versus the route to get there. Laura stresses the importance of making sure you have the support and understanding to keep from falling off track and maintaining your wellbeing.
