Dr. Ellie’s Health Tips: It’s almost the end of January and it seems like we were wrapping gifts for the holidays just yesterday. How are those New Year’s resolutions doing? If you’re like most people, you started off with good intentions and then started to slip back into old habits. Been there. Done that. Many New Year’s resolutions revolve around lifestyle changes. Most lifestyle issues are bad habits that don’t change easily. One way that I’ve found to break old habits is to create new healthy habits without focusing so much on stopping the bad ones. For example, if you want to improve your diet and find that you keep craving the same foods that you resolved to stop eating, start eating more healthy foods (fresh vegetables and fruit, healthy fats such as olive or coconut oil, healthy grains such as quinoa or brown rice). Another option is to replace unhealthy foods with a healthier version of the same food, e.g. frozen veggies instead of canned or fresh instead of frozen. As you start adding healthier foods to your diet, you will begin to find that you don’t crave some of the unhealthy foods like you used to. For me, each day affords us a new opportunity to create a healthy lifestyle. Rather than waste time on how you ‘failed’ to keep your resolutions, focus on how you can do one healthier thing for yourself today. One change at a time. One day at a time.
