A New Year

Written by: Dr. Fred Harvey, MD

Okay you made your resolutions. You committed to a whole new program for your prosperity, and well-being. You may have already broken those promises, why would this year be different from others? But no worry, we can learn from failure.

When we frame our plans for changes in overwhelming tasks, we create a scenario for defeat. If we consider a less harsh approach, we can often succeed. Taking small steps, one at a time, can bring rapid rewards. For instance, if you are tired you might examine sleep hygiene. How clean is your sleep? Do you get to bed before midnight? Do you sleep through the night? If not then look at making quality sleep your project.

After the holidays we often feel the need to diet. DON'T DO IT! Let's rethink diets. Rather than dieting, start to change the way you approach food. First get back to basics. Eat "close to the ground" meaning as whole, local, seasonal and fresh as possible. Farmers markets are a great way to explore foods just out of the ground. For meal planning (especially for the cooking challenged) keep it simple: grilled fish, steamed broccoli and baked potatoes are single items easily cooked. You may add a little butter, salt or fresh lemon juice for flavor, but that results in only a 6-ingredient meal. That's clean eating!

To help you get a better understanding of clean eating, we will be hosting a food based detoxification program Rest, Renew, Rebalance with Nutritionist Paulette Weber. We will kick off with a tour of the Sarasota Farmers Market on January 28. My team at The Harvey Center is excited to provide this fun learning experience.

Please join us to learn a better way to healthy living!
