Fall is in the air these days. Football has begun. School is back in session. Routines are starting to be the norm again.
Which routines in your life could be healthier?
Do you walk the kids down to the bus stop, helping everyone to feel connected to the seasons and to the earth? Or do you drive to the bus?
Is fast food an easy way to take care of dinner after soccer or football practice? It’s super easy to make unhealthy choices when we don’t have a plan! If we take the time to plan ahead - decide on meals in advance, store cut up vegetables and chicken or meat in the freezer, have pre-made meals frozen in portions, washed lettuce in the bin, etc., we affirm our right to enjoy abundant health!
It’s easy to get caught in a rut doing the same old thing; driving instead of walking, take-out meals instead of home cooked whole foods. Choose another way. See how you can upgrade your routines to promote health. Freshly ground almond or peanut butter instead of processed? A commitment to make homemade salad dressings just for the Fall?
Try something new this season- just one new thing- see how much better it feels to make your health a priority!
