THIS MONTH’S TOOLKIT
DON’T GO IT ALONE
I rediscovered this proverb from Seneca recently: “He who would do great things should not attempt them all alone.” I think we can apply that to so many things in life but particularly to our health.
Tell someone your goal. It helps you explore ideas and it will resonate with the other person, too. Hearing yourself say the words will put it out there that you really want this.
Find a buddy who has similar goals or hire a personal trainer (PT). If the cost of working with a PT is outside your budget, try Googling training exercises instead.
Look for healthy food inspiration on TV, magazines, online and even when eating out. Then, start your own healthy recipe book.
Fill it with meals you love or would like to try.
MISH’S PERSONAL LESSON: STAY HUNGRY FOR NEW IDEAS
I’m always on the hunt for new ideas around training and food. I recently took myself to a new vegan cafe and was amazed by everything – the food, the concepts behind the meals and how those ideas ended up on my plate. I was so inspired that I’ve brought some of those ideas into my own kitchen.
