¬†Queensland nutritionist, naturopath, recipe developer and founder of the health and wellness brand Live Love Nourish (www.livelovenourish.com.au), Casey-Lee Lyons shares with us her tips for keep up your febfast healthy habits.
Congratulations on completing febfast! I hope that you enjoyed feeling the amazing health benefits whilst knowing you've helped an incredible cause.
So now that your febfast is over, where to from here?
You've put in a great effort in February so lets use this as a platform to accelerate your health and wellness goals.
To make the most of your hard work here are some of my tips on how to keep up your healthy habits and make steps towards an even healthier and happier you!
- Keep the momentum going. It's much harder to stop and to re-start again so make the most of your February efforts and keep going! The longer you stick at it, the more you'll continue seeing and feeling improvements in how you look and feel.
- The hardest part is over. The first month of any diet or lifestyle change is usually the hardest. So what better motivation than to continue your febfast efforts as it gets easier from here with more and more benefits ahead.
- Re-define your why. Re-establish your new motivation as you progress beyond your febfast and continue towards achieving your health and wellness goals. Setting a goal and purpose will help you to embrace a successful healthy lifestyle ahead.
- Make your febfast habits part of your new healthy lifestyle for the long term. Focus on long term health over short term quick-fixes. You deserve to feel great for the long term and febfast is a great way to accelerate you into your new healthy and balanced lifestyle.
- If you feel this good after one month, imagine how good you will feel in six months or twelve months? This is only the beginning of your potential to feel your healthiest and best!
- Build a support network of positive, like-minded people. You are much more likely to succeed with support around you to inspire and motivate you. Build a tribe with purpose.
- Look how far you've come. Remember back to before you started your febfast and acknowledge the amazing steps you've taken so far. Celebrate your achievement and appreciate how far you've come and the benefits you've already gained.
- Seek support to continue your health focus. If you need a hand to keep going or not too sure where to go from here, connect with a health professional such as a nutritionist or healthy coach that you trust in and feel inspired by. They can help guide your next steps to an even healthier and happier you.
