People have mistakenly believed that a healthy lifestyle is hard, food doesn’t taste good, and it’s too much work. How then do you overcome misconceptions of this nature?
Different diets and thoughts around how to age gracefully are out there. But, at the end of the day, it’s about trusting yourself and knowing that while other people can give you advice you are the person in charge.
As a Board-Certified Health & Nutrition Coach, Jill Anenberg Lawrence guides people who are overwhelmed and struggling with their health, happiness, and energy levels. She helps them make healthy food choices to easily reduce toxins and chemicals so they can live a B.S. free life. If you’re ready to answer the question, “What do I eat to live a vivacious, long and healthy life?” Jill has those answers and lots more!
In this episode, Jill talks about how often we let healthy actions take the backseat because of our busy lives. We’d rather choose to have food from fast-food chains because that’s easier and faster.
We often let other people dictate what we do or shouldn’t do instead of doing our own research, how we tend to be set on our ways, and not trusting ourselves to know what works best for us.
She shares ways of finding how to get motivated to live a healthy lifestyle. But when things get overwhelming, and you can’t do it all yourself, she points to hiring professionals like a health coach, nutritionist, or dietitian to help you move forward with proper action steps.
