The Value of Structure

Many people manage to stay on an eating program with no problem until something stressful happens in their lives. Then, suddenly, their commitment and best intentions are eclipsed by familiar and often unproductive eating habits. What if, when life got stressful, we learned to rely on the healthy routines we know work for us? What if, instead of breaking down, we recommitted to the sensible plans and programs we constructed for ourselves in easier times?

Is your relationship with a friend, family member, or spouse on thin ice? Take especially good care of yourself by nourishing your body well. Is your boss being especially demanding or unappreciative? Maintain your balance by paying special attention to your eating and exercise program. Does your life feel out of control? Take charge of one of the few things that is totally within your control and eat as though your good health depended on it. It does!
