A Llttle Help from our Friends
So you've decided that 2010 is the year to eat healthier?
Like any change, it's hard to do without support from the people around you. Eating food is a cultural experience, and unfortunately, the cards are stacked against us here. Like so many other aspects of American life, we tend to overdo it.
The economy is slow to rebound, and while it can be depressing and drive some people to eat the things they shouldn't, it's causing others to consider prioritizing where they spend their money, and consequently, what they choose to eat.
Not necessarily a bad thing, depending on your lens. Are we living in a time of crisis or opportunity? Eastern thought would say it can be either ~ depending on your outlook.
Make sure you surround yourself with positive people if you've chosen a path of change this year. Nothing drives us to the refrigerator faster than negative thoughts from associating with negative people. And nothing makes resolve easier than just a positive few who are rooting for your success!
