We’re all looking for ways to incorporate healthier habits into our everyday lives, whether that’s moving more, eating better or finding a little balance.
But more so than ever before, we’re bombarded by mixed messages about health and fitness, as well as confusing and contradictory nutritional advice. This in a world where it’s never been easier for us to compare our bodies and lives to friends, family, celebrities or even perfect strangers.
From our fickle fascinations with the latest superfoods (Is it kale, quinoa or goji berries this week? Maybe chia seeds?) and frequent “thinspiration” or “fitspiration” hashtags on social media (#thinspo and #fitspo), it’s no wonder that so many of us give up on our New Year’s resolutions by February, especially ones related to health or fitness.
