Growing up my mother did her best to get us into the habit of eating healthily, creating habits that more or less stuck with me. But after I moved out and started studying for my social work degree, I let my healthy eating habits slide because who has time to think about healthy eating when there are so many other things that need doing? After all, our studies and jobs require so much of our time and energy, it's hard to think about changing eating habits to healthier ones.
Sometimes we get a wake-up call that requires us to start eating better. Sometimes it is a conscious decision. It might be a recommendation from a doctor, a pregnancy, wanting to shed some weight or just a desire to take care of your body and control what you put into it. My wake-up call was my pregnancy. Suddenly whatever I put into my body not only affected me, but also the two little ones growing inside me. I felt I needed to take the best care of them, and myself, by recreating my long-lost healthy eating habits.
But wanting to change is one thing, and implementing change is another thing. For example, you may feel that it is time for you to make yourself more aware of what you put in your mouth, but you are not sure how to go about making this change happen, getting overwhelmed at just the thought. You might wonder where to start and what to do. You’ve come to this course because you want to change, or you want to deal with changes differently. This course will provide you with the necessary tools to understand what change in eating habits means, to identify how such a change works best with who you are, and to help you embrace the ability to create the change that you crave making.
