Triggers are things that set us off in a direction in which we may or may not want to go.
Triggers are powerful messages from our environment and are things we can see, smell, taste, or even touch.
In order to reach our goals, we have to avoid negative triggers in our path. We all have the power to change our environment to some degree.
One of our goals should be to change some things around us to make it easier for us to eat better and become more physically active.
Some possible ways to help you eat better are:
1. Keep fruits on hand and eat them in between meals when you feel like snacking.
2. Drink water when thirsty rather than soda.
3. Shop with a list.
Some suggestions about increasing physical activity are:
- Take the stairs.
- Play with children.
- Dance to music.
- Exercise with friends and family.
- Go for walks in your spare time.
