Learning to Persevere – 7 tips to help you overcome those challenges

Life is full of ups and downs. I’d hope that most of us get lots of ups – where things are going your way, and you are riding the waves of the world like a pro. However, this is my sunshine and rainbows attitude without the reality filter. When that filter comes on though, you see that life isn’t always so awesome.

Stop Dieting – Start Deciding

There are so many reasons why people diet. It might be to get that summer body in time for vacation or just to lose some weight. Whatever it is, we all have our reasons. The only problem is that dieting is not meant to be a lifetime change – it is intended to be something that we do for a few months, and then once we achieve our goal we go back to our regular nutrition habits. That is the trap! There is nothing wrong with dieting, but the problem comes in when we are starving ourselves and end up falling for our cravings. Or even worse – picking up all the weight we have lost just because we went back to our old eating habits. There is nothing more heartbreaking than this so today it is time to put a stop to it. It is time to stop dieting and start deciding. Deciding what you may ask? Deciding to choose an option that is easier for you and will give you the best results you could hope for.
