Quick Tip: Always Make a Great Shake

When it comes to talking about shakes, I always make it very clear to folks that they should put a little effort into making their shakes taste good, to ensure that they continue to find their shakes enjoyable. This is incredibly important when making long-term lifestyle changes because if you aren’t enjoying your shake, it is going to be very easy to stop taking it even after you have started experiencing positive results.

I think that something psychologically positive happens when you really enjoy what you are feeding your body. I’m not talking about satisfying that crazy and unexplainable need to devour a KFC family meal all by yourself, I’m talking about that feeling you get when you fuel your body with something positive.

Have you ever eaten something healthy and sort of felt like your body might be sighing with relief? I love that feeling! That feeling motivates me. And because of this feeling, it is so important to make a bit of an effort with your shakes.

A Small Change for Better Health: Lunch break walks

Instead of using your lunch break to catch up on Facebook, why not take a brisk walk? A quick 15 minute walk will do the world of good in setting you up for the afternoon and ensuring that you have enough energy for the rest of the day. You might even see some strength and weight loss benefits from it! Breathe deeply, feel each muscle as you move, and go back to  your desk feeling refreshed.

A Small Change for Better Health: Take your own food to work

Instead of allowing your midday hunger to dictate what you grab from the deli for sustenance at lunchtime, why not rather pack your lunch in the morning? That way you can control what you’re ingesting instead of leaving it up to fate and cravings. You might even consider having a Herbalife Shake for lunch, coupled with protein snacks for your tea breaks.

The Smallest Resolution

While many of us spend the first few days of January lost in grand thoughts of improbable resolutions, I have to wonder if these resolutions do not set us up for disillusionment. Often what happens, especially with health goals and attempts at lifestyle changes, is that we tend to give up on resolutions almost immediately because we take on too many of them. Goals are such an important part of life, of course, and they are undoubtedly a pastime to be encouraged, but what if we’re biting off more than we can chew? It seems to me we could be.

I propose that we step back from the overwhelming resolutions that we try to tackle all at once and break them down into something a little more bite-sized. How about, instead of giving ourselves a long list of new rules to live by, we start with just one?

Drink more water.

Our part of the world is experiencing overwhelming heat, which means that dehydration is more likely than normal. We all know we should be drinking water and yet we still aren’t always doing it. So why don’t we all start with just this one resolution? We can practice the water for a while, and then add the next one.

Once you’ve mastered sticking to one resolution, it becomes easier to stick to the next one, right?

(that’s my story and I’m sticking to it!)

Taste Tip: Add Herbal Aloe to your water for a refreshing change. Contact us for more info on the health benefits of drinking aloe.
