Being RA is still going well, and I am getting more involved with different aspects of my Exercise Science major. Lately I've been really interested in the nutrition aspect and mental health.
While procrastinating homework (not recommended), I came across an article with some good tips for making little self-imrovements. This article is not a college endorsed or funded site, but here is the link http://kriscarr.com/blog/crazy-sexy-gentle-how-to-cleanse-in-2013/. It's mainly a health and wellness blog for women, but any gentleman reading this would likely benefit as well.
I definitely agree with the article that little life changes are easier to integrate than extreme changes. For example, let's say one of you goals is to cut down on sugar intake, but you never feel like working towards your goal because you feel it might be an all-or-none deal. This should not be the case. Instead of saying to yourself I can never have cookies or pop again, think to yourself "I can have a cookie or a soda, just not 5 cookies or sodas. Just cut down on one cookie or one soda a day. Some effort is better than no effort! Or if you are open to switching foods, grab a piece of fruit instead of a cookie. Or even two pieces of fruit. (You might grab two or three cookies, or have two or three cokes, why not have a few pieces of fruit instead? In fact, you'll eat less because the fiber in the fruit will fill you up sooner and you won't have to eat as much. Plus it's natural sugar, not high fructose corn syrup).
It's still the beginning of 2013 - it is not too late to start a "New Year's" resolution!
