Can you believe 2022 is fast approaching? Between now and new year's there will be plenty of celebrations of getting together with family and loved ones.
Like I mentioned last year around this time, mindfulness around eating doesn't have to happen at the first of the year like new year's resolutions. Resolutions can start anytime of the year if you are trying to make a healthy lifestyle a permanent part of your daily life.
I say mindfulness when it comes to a healthy lifestyle, because there is too much media hype on the next "lose weight fast!" phenomenon. When it really goes deeper than this as quick fixes never last if you can't get your mindset right for lasting results.
Change is not easy but taking any positive action can help if done consistently.
One way to be mindful can be attained through health apps. I know there are MANY out there, but I will just mention one which is helpful for me and may be for you.
The Ate app is all about mindfulness. It's a way of food journaling you can simply do by just taking a snapshot of your meal with your phone. If you forget to snapshot your meal, you can easily just add text for a meal you consumed.
The Ate app is helpful in assisting in building healthy habits. Although simplistic in this approach, you can see an overview of your meal that you've made over a period of time and only YOU can decide if you are on track by seeing your food choices.
Ready to get started? Just download the app available for Apple users and Android.
IF you want to start with healthy habits without the app, you can also access their FREE e-book below. The e-book is filled with habits you can work on such as "Eating Meals without Guilt" "Don't Eat too much of Any One Thing" and "Cook More Often"
Building Healthy Habits with Ate
Over a period of time, small changes can really make an impact that you can live with for life. Only you can decide if an app such as Ate, will help you through this process of getting healthy.
Wishing you a wonderful holiday season!
Eat Good! Look Good! Feel Good!
