How to Feel Better Quickly When You Get Off Track

I want to check in on your New Year's resolutions.

as January rolls on….how did you sleep last night … have you gotten regular exercise in this week … are you focusing on whole foods … and how is your mood?

I’m asking because all of that is RELATED.

When just one of those things is out of whack, it can throw everything else out of whack right along with it!

  • A bad night of sleep can throw your hunger hormones out of balance, making you feel hungry … even if you’ve eaten enough

  • A stressful day can leave you exhausted and craving comfort foods (and tempt you to skip your workout)

  • Lack of activity can drain your energy and also leave you tossing and turning

  • Eating too close to bedtime can make it hard to sleep

  • And on and on and on!

So … if you’re having one of “those days” … try taking a step back to look at the bigger picture – and then take ONE ACTION to help you feel better (and get back on track).

Some ideas:

  • Go outside for a brisk walk and fresh air – or make time for a workout. This works much better than a quick caffeine pickup which will leave you crashing later.

  • Take 5-10 minutes to sit in a quiet space and do breathing exercises. Here is a video on alternate nostril breathing, one of my favorite breathing exercises.

  • Make sure your next meal is healthy & made of whole foods (including veggies!)

  • Double-check your water intake for the day. You want to see pale to clear urine coming out every time, NOT dark yellow.

This can be like hitting the “reset” button on your day and will help you make better choices moving forward.

What’s ONE action you can count on to RESET your day? Keep this in your back pocket in case you need it!

Having a “big picture” viewpoint can make all the difference in your wellness – and it’s just ONE REASON why working with an experienced functional medicine practitioner can help you get the results you want!

Not only will you have a complete roadmap to success, but also the accountability, support, motivation, and experience to help you feel confident every step of the way.
