If there ever was a time when getting healthy was important this is it!! Although still little is known about this new coronavirus, a fact that seems common to most doctors & scientists is that healthy people are not as affected. The common consensus is that being overweight is what seems to put the most strain on your overall health. With all this time sitting around the house losing weight might be a little difficult or....with some accountability and a system maybe not...
While your nutrition and exercise are essential to staying healthy, your environment also plays a key role in helping you slim down and is often disregarded. Considering most of us are home right now, there cannot be a more perfect moment! You have plenty of time to get organized and get yourself used to being into a healthy routine. My Virtual Organizing services make it possible no matter where you are and is social distancing approved.
The science behind it:
Clutter around your home, especially your kitchen, creates a distracting, stressful environment that could stop your efforts to stick to your weight-loss plan. A study from 2016 has found that “stressful and chaotic food environments” (meaning the kitchen and pantry) influence people to reach for high-calorie snacks. Peter Walsh’s in Does This Clutter Make My Butt Look Fat? have preached to dieters for years: Tidying up and planning ahead might be just as important to weight loss as committing to exercise and a reduced-calorie diet. It seems that people with untidy homes often struggle to stick to their weight-loss plans. And in my professional experience as a Professional Organizer I have vitnessed this almost every time.
Dietician Dafna Chazin expalined that “If you’re constantly trying to catch up, organize, and declutter, you’re stressed. When people are chronically stressed, the body responds with a surge of hormones that increase cravings and hunger throughout the day,” She also added that stressful environments erode our ability to create plans we can commit to. Our discipline to eat better and exercise more is diminished by the visual noise and the distraction of piles of stuff all around us. “If you can’t control a mess, you begin to doubt your ability to control your eating. It gives you mental permission to overeat and eat mindlessly. You end up reaching for foods you don’t really want to eat, like chips, and then feel ashamed and demotivated.”
This is the reason I have created this new program Healthy Lifestyle Organizing A lot more than tidying a kitchen and getting on a diet. Check it out!!
