I’m happy to welcome back Certified Nutritionist and author of A Fresh Wellness Mindset, Tam John. Our theme this month, in honor of Spring Cleaning, is Streamlining, both physical and financial wellness. Let’s start with Tam’s 3 tips to get more of what you want, with financial comments from Kristi thrown in:
- Let go of what isn’t serving you. Whether it is an unproductive habit like getting cheap chemically laden pizza on Friday night or wolfing down your food standing up, or something else, stop hurting yourself. As with these examples, you don’t need to cook dinner Friday night but there are many more healthful and satisfying choices. Inner dialogue that you don’t have time to sit down and chew your food is nonsense.
Financial – If you have old investments that you don’t remember why you bought them or what purpose they serve in your portfolio, it may be time to let go. Ask yourself, would I buy this again today if I had the chance? If the answer is no, it may be time to sell.
- Let food fuel you. You won’t need so many extras when you choose food, drink and lifestyle that nourishes you. Lose coffee drinks, supplements that you really don’t know they benefit you or their quality isn’t assured. Choosing simple real lively food can be very satisfying and nourishing. Simple choices allow you to taste the true nature of the food.
Financial – Get excited about your savings milestones! If you set up automatic savings to your emergency fund or kids’ 529 college accounts, pat yourself on the back! Let your good financial process fuel your excitement for the goals you will reach.
- Lose perfect. Everybody is perfect as they truly are. Find your beautiful truth by slowing to your own breath for 10 minutes each day. Pay attention to how your body feels with your choices of food and drink. Heed the messages your body is giving you. Its intelligence will guide you to your beautiful truth.
Financial – We’ve all made investments we wish we didn’t or spent money foolishly. Let those past mistakes go and just focus on what you need to do to get on track for your future financial stability.
