Picking The Lowest...

Here in Maine, we're getting into prime apple picking season. 

It's a mandatory trip in the Spurling household, and this year will be extra fun as we get to bring Kaden with us. 

As I was thinking about it, it made me think of a great nutrition lesson I think we all can benefit from. 

Pick the lowest hanging fruit.

Some of you have heard it before, some of you have never heard of it, either way, I think it's good for all of us to keep at the top of our mind. 

As we look at making habit changes with nutrition, it's helpful to not overload ourselves and pick the lowest hanging fruit. 

As you know, there's a lot of information out there, a lot of contradicts itself, and it can be frustrating and hard to know what to do. 

Typically what happens is it just causes us to not take any action. 

The "pick the lowest hanging fruit" technique stems from picking the easiest thing you could work on and take action on immediately, rather than getting bogged down with information and not taking any action. 

For example, if you look at your nutrition and you realize you need to get more protein, drink more water, and eat more vegetables, it's important to only pick one. 

If you try to tackle all three of those habits at once, the watered down approach will typically result in an unsuccessful attempt. 

Rather, pick one, the one that you feel you can more easily tackle, and go all in on that one choice. 

Picking the lowest hanging fruit, putting all your effort on that one thing, and then, and only then, move onto the next lowest hanging fruit. 

Give the technique a try and let us know how it goes. 

1% Better.

Dedicated to Your Success,

Doug Spurling
