#Heart30: DIET

At the 'heart' of my #Heart30 Self-Care Challenge are five main components: SLEEP, WATER, SELF-CARE, DIET and EXERCISE. In this blog post, we'll be discussing a healthy diet, the fourth component of the #Heart30 Challenge.

A healthy diet... an element that impacts every aspect of our lives. Eating healthy isn't just about choosing a salad with protein instead of going for that juicy burger. Rather, eating healthy is about embracing the awesome power of food, and how it fuels our bodies and minds like nothing else can.

The body supports the mind.

Our diet supports the body.

For the remainder of this post, I will share the importance and the benefits that diet, the fourth #Heart30 self-care challenge component, offers:

*Diet creates quality energy. You wouldn't fuel a Ferrari with cheap gas, you shouldn't fuel your body with junk. A healthy diet packed with nutrients gives you the energy for whatever life throws your way, whether it's a presentation at work or planning weekend hike.

*Say goodbye to brain fog. You are sure to experience more mental clarity with the right food choices. Foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids, like salmon and walnuts, are like rocket fuel for your brain, boosting memory and cognitive function.

*Eating a balanced diet keeps your blood sugar stable and your mood on an even keel. Plus, indulging in your favorite healthy treats releases feel-good endorphins without the sugar rush.

*Your diet may be your best defense against colds and flu. Perhaps only rivaled by hand washing. Load up on colorful fruits and veggies bursting with vitamins and antioxidants to give your immune system the boost it needs to keep you healthy. A healthy diet is your ticket to a longer, happier life. Research shows that people who eat a balanced diet live longer and are less likely to develop chronic diseases like heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.

Eating healthy isn't about deprivation or bland salads (although those have their place too). It's about embracing the delicious diversity of foods that nourish our bodies and minds. 


I know it's not always easy to change habits. Your diet is a habit: but one is worth working on. This is a very short list of the benefits of a healthy diet. I'm sure you can think of many more positives for a healthy diet that I didn't even mention.

You are worth the effort it will take, and you'll feel better and look better too.

Live every day on purpose,

Peggy Romero
