Happy Father’s Day to all the Perfectly Fit dads!
I hope you are able to get out and enjoy this beautiful day with your Family or maybe take a day to recharge by yourself. Whatever you do, I hope it lifts you up and fills your soul!
Here are my top 3 tips for keeping yourself healthy over the summer without sacrificing good food and lots of fun!
1. Be mindful of how much, why, and what you are eating. Before you decide what you will eat, take three deep balloon breaths that expand your belly below your diaphragm and exhale as much air as you possibly can. Ask yourself what do you need to eat to nourish your body right now. Make sure you understand why you are eating – hungry, bored, sad, etc. Visualize how much you need to satisfy your hunger without eating too much.
2. Move your body as much as you can throughout the day! An active lifestyle is far more effective at keeping you healthy than a 1 hour workout combined with 12 hours of sitting/not moving. Figure out how to make your life as active as possible.
3. Try to make every meal and snack a combination of healthy protein, fat, and fiber. Think poached egg on half of an Ezekiel english muffin with sautéed spinach and avocado, apples with peanut or almond butter, organic plain yogurt with chopped walnuts and 1/2 cup of berries – you get the idea!
