5 Tips To Improve Your Life In An Instant

5 tips to improve your life resized 600Do you struggle with breaking bad habits or making improvements in your life? Often, the problem is that we think we have to do it all, right away. We set unrealistic goals, or create a plan that would help us achieve our  goal quickly -- if we could stick to it, which we find that we can't.

For instance, if your goal was to lose weight, and you decided to eat a very strict diet and exercise two hours a day -- you'd see results quickly. But how long would it last? The key to success -- in health, diet, weight loss or anything else where we want to see long-term results -- is to focus on making changes you can live with, changes that will stick.

Here are 5 tips to get you thinking about positive changes you can make to feel better right away.

1 - Don't save the best for last. - It might stem from our parents telling us we could have dessert after we eat all our broccoli, but, too often, we'll eat all the good stuff on our plate and save our favorite for last. By that time, we're already full, but we're not going to leave our favorite food on the plate, so we stuff ourselves. Instead, allow yourself a small helping of your favorite food (and remember, a serving of meat is the size of a deck of cards), then move on to the salad and other foods you feel you “should” eat. Better yet, don't cook foods you aren't crazy about -- find healthy choices you love, instead. No one's making you eat broccoli anymore.

2 - Make a list, and create your diet around that list. - Make a list of your favorite foods in every category -- protein, slow-burning carbs, vegetables, etc. Then create a healthy meal plan around those foods, which includes half a plate of vegetables, a 3 oz. serving of meat, poultry or another protein, and a serving about the size of a tennis ball of whole grain carbohydrates. Are your lists on the short side? Try new foods, like quinoa as a grain or vegetables you've never eaten before. Then build your healthy eating plan around your favorite old and new foods.

3. Eat when you want. - Who says dinner should be the largest meal of the day? If you like lingering over a healthy breakfast, do it. (You'll stay full longer, and won't be tempted to make bad mid-morning snack choices.) Some people eat dinner-style foods at lunchtime, and then have a much lighter meal in the evening. Others “graze,” eating six small meals each day, which has been shown to boost metabolism and help weight loss. Whatever works for you, do it.

4. Focus on your food. - Eat in an uninterrupted area, where you can really focus. Avoid eating while working, watching TV, or when you're engaged in activities that distract from the meal. Pay close attention to the taste, smell and textures of foods. And eat slowly. It takes your body 15 minutes to send the signal to your brain that you're full, so pause as the meal comes to an end and decide if you really need to keep eating.

5. Choose exercise that works for you. - The expression “no pain, no gain,” is only true to a certain extent. If you're feeling joint pain, rather than muscle burn, it's time to stop. Maybe you're doing the exercise wrong or maybe it's the wrong exercise for you. Also, if you don't enjoy an exercise, you won't continue long-term. Find a few activities you love and make sure to get in at least 20 minutes of physical activity three times a week -- and more if you can!
