14 Game-changing tips to master your health routine.
As a native San Franciscan, I pride myself on my parallel-parking skills. But now that I have a reverse camera in my car, I wonder how I ever parked before this technology. It’s changed my whole experience. With food and exercise, too, a simple tool or new habit can make what once felt difficult instead seem effortless.
I call these tools “game-changers.” Pouched wild salmon is a game-changer for me. Fresh salmon is too expensive, and even if I did pay the price, I can’t batch-cook salmon for the week, as it won’t last. But I really want to increase my intake of omega-3 fatty acids, and wild salmon is the best option. I now order precooked, three-ounce portions of wild salmon online and enjoy it regularly for lunch. What once felt impossible is now easy.

Unpack the problem and understand your “why.” Start noticing when you’re feeling rushed, annoyed or frustrated. If so, take a breath and try to understand the frustration. Why does this continue to be a problem? Get specific. Then decide whether it’s under your control to find a tool, change the routine or create a new habit to make life easier. Here are some ideas.
