A Message from Your Balanced Habits™ Team

How can it be that we are already halfway through 2022?  If you’re a monthly goal setter, you’ve had five months to master some new skills or to develop some new behaviors this year. Adopting new, more balanced habits requires consistency and practice. We like to anchor new habits we want to master onto existing habits we already have. In example, if you want to make taking daily vitamins a new habit, it might be best to anchor that to something you do each morning, such as brushing your teeth.  That’s a much faster way to engrain a new habit into your established routine.

Have a joyful June!

Balanced Habits News

The 44th Installment of the Balanced Habits™ 4 Week KICK START was so much fun! We experimented with adding Air Fryer cooking directions to recipes when possible and from what we’ve heard, people loved it.  Did you know that each time we run a KICK START it’s a new season, a new theme, a new focus and always all new recipes. From time to time we repurpose “fan favorite” recipes so we can introduce them to new people, but for the most part the majority of the seasonal recipes are all new. We’ve also been having fun providing plant-based protein modifications when it’s possible, as we’re seeing more and more folks incorporating that into their weekly menus. If you participated with this spring ’22 KICK START we hope you had or are having a great time learning how great it can be to eat real food in the right portions for you, your body and your goals.   

June is the time to prep your body for summer, learn how to “hack” your way through your kitchen, refrigerator, and mealtimes to begin living your best life. ☺  Consider what it would mean to have an action plan that will save your time, money, brain power, and that overall will simplify your life.  There’s no better time to start working on a life filled with quality, energy, strength, confidence, positivity, and vitality!

Speak to a Balanced Habits™ team member to find out how you can learn exactly what you need to do to reach your health & wellness goals once and for all!  We have a plan for you.
