Your Start to a Healthy New Year

“I’m off sugar this year.”

“I need to hit the gym more often.”

“My doctor says I need to watch my cholesterol.”

Sound familiar?

Sometimes a change in personal lifestyle is a choice, and sometimes it is a necessity. The New Year represents a new opportunity to makes these healthy changes and to make them stick. If eating better, working out more, and staying healthy are all on your list of goals this year, then Moonlighting has some tips for turning those resolutions into realities.


Hire a Personal Chef

Hiring a personal chef is a great way to make sure you are eating regular, hearty meals that require little planning on your part. Who doesn’t love to come home to a prepared gourmet meal? If you are thinking of hiring a personal chef, here are some suggestions on finding the right one:

Reviews: make sure your potential personal cook has strong references. It is best to read reviews or ask for references in order to make sure they will meet your expectations.

Taste Test: set aside some time for an interview, which should also include a trial meal. Tell them what kind of meals you expect and at what cost. This way, you can be sure you will like the food they make and you can trust that it won’t be too costly.

Salary: make an offer, and negotiate with your personal chef to see what they are willing work for. Be sure to research the going rate for personal chefs in your area so that you can come to a final, informed pricing decision.

Hire a Personal Nutritionist

If hiring a personal chef isn’t for you, or you just really love to cook, then consider hiring a personal nutritionist. The best part? A personal nutritionist can be local or remote! A personal nutritionist can help you plan and execute certain weight and nutrition goals when you have no idea where to begin.

If you plan on hiring a personal nutritionist, be sure to ask for their credentials. The nutritionist you want to hire will have a degree in nutrition or dietetics and a background in behavioral management and nutrition. A strong candidate will also be someone with whom you feel comfortable sharing personal health information. Post a job or search on Moonlighting to find a nutritionist today!


Hire a Personal Trainer

Trying to get that six pack by summer? Hire a personal trainer to push and train your physical limits. A physical trainer not only understands the human body, but knows how to get you into a positive and determined mindset that will ultimately lead to your improved physical well-being.

Finding the right personal trainer can be tricky, because everyone has a slightly different approach. Ultimately, you want to find someone who pushes you, keeps you accountable, and with whom you feel comfortable. Trying to lose weight, gain muscle, or increase your cardio? Identify what kind of trainer you want and post a job on Moonlighting or search for trainer in your area.


Stick to It

In the end, the person most responsible for your health and fitness is you. It starts with the decision to make choices, and it ends when you have put in the hard work to see real results. Here at Moonlighting, we believe in powering the business of you, but you are where that power starts.
