Information is so readily available nowadays, we are constantly bombarded by messages telling us what to and what not to do. If you’re like me, whenever you stumble upon something new, you’ll spend hours looking up anything and everything about it. The immense amount of opinions from all sorts of different people can be overwhelming and quite frankly it just makes me even more confused.
Let’s take diets for example (by diet I mean people’s way of eating, not what they do to try to lose weight). Some people thrive off of eating a paleo diet, others swear by their raw vegan lifestyle. It’s probably one of the most controversial topics on the internet and I personally think that people can get a bit too heated when it comes to arguing with other people about their diet. I’m all about eating in a way that fuels your body and helps you live life to the fullest.
I chose to mention this topic since it’s nearly the end of the year which means people will be making New Years Resolutions, 99.9% (I totally did not just make that up) of which will most likely be lifestyle changes in attempts to lose weight. Before you promise yourself to drastically change your way of eating just because that’s what your favourite celebrity or instagram influencer is doing, think again.
There is no one size fits all, and that applies to everything. Having gone to extremes when it comes to food, I am a big advocate of doing whatever suits you and your body – you do you. Just because something works for that person doesn’t mean it will work for you. I know we all want to find that ‘quick fix’ that miraculously solves all your problems, but I’m sorry to break the news to you – there’s no such thing.
After years of looking for the ‘perfect’ answer, I have finally decided that there will always be people telling you the opposite no matter what you do. The moral of the story is, instead of comparing what you’re doing to other people, just do you. That’s it.
