Primed for a New Year

New Year Resolutions often include some aspect of diet, health or fitness and all equate to a change in lifestyle. The success or failure of our goals determined by several key factors will (determination and motivation), ability to adapt (flexibility of mind and plan), direction and support (quality resources that inform and inspire).

How a Primal Lifestyle can help you reach your goals!

With so many choices accosting our mailboxes, TV’s and portable devices, all of which claiming easy weight-loss, fast results, a whole new you – how does one decide where to begin?

But, what if you took a whole-lifestyle approach that encompassed all your goals?

Re-discovering our ancestral roots and delving into the principles which ensured survival of the fittest, is what defines a Primal Lifestyle. “Back to basics but not literally!”

Whilst the emphasis is on simplifying your lifestyle, making a Primal shift does not involve relinquishing ‘all’ modern means instead it encourages you to leverage those which are beneficial and reduce others which are not. Just as you might remove old files on a computer before rebooting with the basics making your machine faster and more efficient – when you restore your mind and body to their default settings (minus mental or physical overstimulation), results are achieved at speed with minimal effort.

Stone Age Support in a Digital World. “Where there’s a will there’s a way!”

Quality resources covering all aspects of the aforementioned trio of goals (weight-loss, health and fitness) relating a multitude of broader lifestyle topics (recreation, mental enhancement, social and environmental impacts) to have you Primed for a New Year can be sourced online.
