12 Days of Wellness, Day 11: Get Smart!

Stopwatch It’s Day 11 of the 12 Days of Wellness Challenge and today’s challenge is an easy one. When facing a goal of any kind, one of your most important tools is knowledge. Without it, you can throw all the action in the world behind your effort, but you aren’t likely to get far. Today I ask you to spend just 10 minutes educating yourself on any topic related to wellness that you are interested in. The more specific you can be, the easier it will be for you to find good information. To get you started here are a couple of resources:

For exercise-related topics, I often turn to the American Council on Exercise’s Exercise Library. From there you can search individual exercises, or use the tabs along the lefthand sidebar to create an entire workout program for yourself.

If you have questions about nutrition and healthy eating, then you should definitely check out NutritionFacts.org, the nonprofit website of Dr. Michael Greger. His short videos and blogposts draw on the very best scientific research to explain nutritional concepts in terms anyone can understand. Just plug your topic into the search bar at the top of his site and you’ll get dozens of videos or blogs to choose from. I use this resource nearly every day and I recommend that you do, too.

If weight loss is one of your top wellness goals and you want a more in-depth, step-by-step guide to smart exercise and diet for weight loss, then pick up a copy of my book, Reboot Your Body: Unlocking the Genetic Secrets to Permanent Weight Loss. It’s full of scientifically-backed information that can not only help you lose weight, but keep it off for good.
