Keep It Simple: A New Blog Series


For those of you who read my blog regularly (Hi mom and dad!), you may have noticed that each Wednesday I put up a “How To” post.  I’ve been offering tips and tricks on being healthier as well as other little life lessons.  I want to continue on in that vein, but I am going to change the format up a little.

I mentioned the other day that I wanted to keep expanding my blog and help reach more readers.  One of the ways I want to do this is to start filming and adding videos to my blog.  I think this is just another way that I can reach out to people and offer the knowledge that I have gained from my own healthy journey.  It’s also going to be a challenge for me to step out of my comfort zone and do something new.  I am perfectly comfortable writing on my blog, but being on camera is going to be a whole new beast.  Even though I am a little nervous about this new venture I know that it’s good to keep pushing myself, especially if I want to grow my readership.

I don’t have a video for today but I am working behind the scenes to start filming.  But I don’t want to leave you without some helpful advice for your first Wednesday of the year!

If there is one thing that you take away from my blog it should be that being healthy doesn’t have to be hard.  I want to drive home how simple it can be.  I think that media and advertising makes it seem like you have to complicate everything to be as healthy as you want to be and that in turn has confused so many of us at to what is actually.  The truth is that you don’t need to do anything crazy to make your life better.  When I first started out I bought into the whole more is more theory and thought that I had to do the latest fad diet or exercise routine to get the results that I wanted.  Nope!  The habits and routines that have stuck with me all these years and are the most successful are the simple changes that I made over time.

If you are just starting out this new year with the mindset of a new you, take this advice to heart.  The simpler the better.  It will be easier to change your unhealthy lifestyle this way as well as make it last.

With this key idea in mind, that’s what these Wednesday videos are going to be all about.  Simple meals, simple exercises, simple tips and advice.  These are the things that I do everyday to help keep myself healthy.  I have a lot of great things planned and I’m sure that they will help you realize just how easy it is to live a healthier life!

Check back next week to see the beginning of my simple health series and get ready to live your healthiest year yet!
