What if the design of your home could increase your potential for success?
In his book Slim By Design author and behavioral scientist, Brian Wansink, explains how changes to your environment can change your behavior.
With this approach in mind, we present some of our award-winning homes to demonstrate the best design ideas for a healthy lifestyle.
A well-organized kitchen is your base camp for success. An uncluttered environment is inviting and lets you feel in control. Store food out of sight except for a bowl filled with a variety of fresh fruit on the counter.
You will be more motivated to prepare healthy meals when cooking and clean up is a breeze! Innovative products and appliances will increase your efficiency and decrease the time you spend in the kitchen.
Drink more water! It’s easy with a beverage station to keep it icy cold, and far away from the tempting snacks in the refrigerator.
A dedicated planning desk will help you coordinate nutritional meals and keep track of your progress.
Take advantage of color psychology by using kitchen colors that do not stimulate the appetite. Blue is known to promote weight loss because it is not associated with food. But notice how appealing the contrasting bowl of oranges becomes!
Sit down and enjoy every bite in a dedicated dining area. Studies show that eating without distraction will increase your satisfaction during every meal.
Take the stairs! You do not have to commit to a full hour at the gym, just make a conscious effort to move more often and avoid shortcuts.
Focus on your commitment by surrounding yourself with active options. Create a colorful visual display of your workout equipment that is ready to go.
Lack of sleep leads to low energy and poor choices throughout the day. A restful bedroom will help you get the sleep you deserve.
Reward yourself with treats that are not related to food. A spa bathroom will help you start every day stress-free.
Take a moment for inspirational reading or meditation to keep yourself on track for success.
