What changes can we make that will make a big difference? Plenish nutrition expert Jenna Hope explains.
We have all been in the position where we set goals which are far too great; we try and change our whole lifestyle at once and in essence we are setting ourselves up to fail. Big things take time and they start with small steps. We often see Instagram’s finest Transformation Tuesdays but what we miss are the small steps which were taken at the beginning.
Many of us use the opportunity of a new year to set New Year resolutions. This post aims at providing you with the small steps to get you to the bigger goals. Don’t try and tackle everything at once, the challenges are too great and quite simply not sustainable! Follow these tips, one at a time and you’ll reach your successes at a steadier rate.
These tips are there to simply help you get back on track with your health. Of course underlying health conditions, hormone imbalances and digestive issues can play a key role in the fluctuation of your weight so if you believe you have a health complication seek help from a professional nutritionist. Similarly, should you decide to make a massive change to your diet seek help from a professional to ensure you aren’t at risk of any nutrient deficiencies.
