This could be published on Women’s Day, but is relevant to every day in the life of a woman. Though the article is for women, it also applies to the men who love them.
If you think that it’s impossible to take a few minutes to slow down and de-stress in a healthy way, we say – Yes! You can! There is nothing better than these few minutes for a bit of self-care.
We, at SMIT FIT, firmly believe that eating mindfully is the best way to get started.
Let’s consider some thoughts that often cross the minds of many, and why it’s important to think otherwise: “No one can see me right now, so why should I care about my weight?”
There are many reasons to work on your healthy eating and/or weight management. Feeling in control, feeling good about the food you’re eating, enjoying a better state of fitness – these are just a few benefits of eating mindfully. How others perceive you is not even a fraction of how important it is to look after yourself.
One of the most dangerous and destructive thoughts is – “I just don’t care.”
Take a moment and ask yourself if you are really that carefree about your health. The truth is, you do care about your health, your weight, your fitness and most importantly, you care about your well-being. You will never choose something unhealthy over healthy.
Taking care of yourself in every way, not only in food habits, is very important. Being oblivious to self-care might just make you more vulnerable to turning to food when you are stressed or upset because you haven’t explored other ways of dealing with high pressure situations.
Together with SMIT FIT, we can work on building parallel techniques of stress relief into your daily routine, so that you don’t have to turn to food as a solution for every challenge.
