Positive changes, no matter how big or small, have a direct impact on your life. Last week I challenged myself and you to start a health-supportive morning routine. I literally felt like I was reprogramming myself to avoid reaching for my phone and scrolling through my e-mails the second my alarm went off. Adjustments in habits and lifestyle often require a shift in physical and emotional energy as well as a true commitment to modifying behavior, since it is believed it takes at least thirty days for a change to cement into place. Yoffie Life considers changes in habits and lifestyle advanced changes, or as we like to call them, Level 3 changes.
Improving your health and wellness requires a continual commitment to change. Luckily, not all changes are classified as Level 3. Sometimes, a change is as simple as swapping one ingredient for another in a recipe. This type of change, a Level 1 change, only requires a little knowledge and forethought for a potentially big health impact.
Yoffie Life Expert Marcie explains in her article “Monster Mash” that while tuna fish is rich in omega-3 fatty acids and has tremendous health benefits, its health-supportive properties are often watered down when mixed with a dollop of store-bought mayonnaise. Learn how to amp up the health benefit of your next tuna sandwich by swapping mayonnaise for avocado. This simple change has a big impact on the health of your sandwich and your energy throughout the day.
