Healthy Habits for YOUR Weight Management Journey

Millions of people across the world struggle with weight management. The statistics around obesity and weight gain are staggering, especially right now. 47% of women and 55% of men reported weight gain at the start of lock down. The number of states reporting obesity at 35% or higher doubled at the beginning of the pandemic. Now, our wellness routines look very different than they did before this started.

Much of the difficulty in weight management for everyone is rooted in psychology – our mindset, our habits, and body positivity. Research has shown that getting our mindset right is one of the most significant factors in long-term implementation and maintenance of healthy habits. A positive mindset leads to improved adoption and adherence of microshifts in our daily life that dramatically impact weight.

Microshifts in our daily routine improve factors like sleep, mood and stress that have a cyclic effect on our weight management journey. These gentle nudges reduce the risk of chronic disease and complications from conditions like diabetes, hypertension and heart disease. New evidence now shows that we can even age in reverse with these simple behavior changes. When you successfully establish routines that work for you rather than against you, the nuances of utilizing macro and micronutrition alongside exercise and stress management seem much more attainable.
