We’re always told to be gentle, kind, and patient with others, and nothing is wrong with that because we all need to be actively doing those things to better one another. But I don’t think we’re told enough how important it is to love ourselves, too. Now I don’t mean being self-focused and selfish. I mean truly getting to know yourself - your quirks and your depth, your hurts and your passions. Learning to love yourself is not a simple journey, but oh my gosh is it a thrill.

Be gentle with yourself.

Be kind to yourself.

Be patient with yourself.

10 Health Rules You Can Ignore

Old Rule #1: Eat the Rainbow

When nutrition experts first urged us to fill our plates with brightly hued produce, it made sense. Researchers were discovering the powerful benefits of a crayon box of antioxidants, from red (lycopene in tomatoes) to blue and purple (anthocyanins in berries and grapes), to orange (beta-carotene in carrots).

New Thinking: White is a Color, Too
Cauliflower packs the powerful cancer-combating compounds also found in its flashy cousin, broccoli. Garlic and onions may be pale, but they protect against stomach and colorectal cancer. And portobello and cremini mushrooms are just as rich in antioxidants as green beans, carrots, and red peppers.

Old Rule #2: Eat Meat for Iron

For years, women have been advised to eat moderate amounts of lean beef because it’s the best source of iron. Bad news for burger fans: A three-ounce patty may deliver 2.2 milligrams, but there’s compelling evidence that red meat’s heme iron increases heart-disease risk for some women. It’s also associated with a higher risk of colon cancer.

New Thinking: Go Green for Iron
If you’re under 50, the recommended daily allowance is 18 milligrams, and after menopause, it plunges to 8 milligrams. Healthy non-heme sources: dark green leafy vegetables, legumes, dried fruits, and blackstrap molasses. Eat these alongside produce high in vitamin C, which helps you absorb the iron.

Old Rule #3: Avoid Processed Foods

It’s still good advice if you’re considering things like cookies, white bread, and sweet cereals. These can be loaded with sugar and may also lack the nutrients you find in less-refined products.

New Thinking: Not All Fast Foods are Created Equal
Canned light tuna, frozen brown rice, whole-grain pasta…stock up on these (and prepped veggies), and you can have a healthy dinner in a flash. For extra benefits, include processed legumes such as canned beans (lower-sodium varieties). A recent review found legumes help prevent obesity and minimize some of the health risks of being overweight.
