Jess Lynch is the founder of Wishroute. Jess started her career in consulting at PwC but started Wishroute when she was at Babson College getting her MBA and realized we have a wish epidemic ‐ she kept hearing friends say they wish they were exercising or eating healthier and something clicked.
The Wishroute approach is inspired by Jess’s family’s experience with lifestyle change when her brother was diagnosed with juvenile diabetes. They started walking after dinner, sneaking veggies in smoothies and drinking water instead of juice, and she saw how incremental small changes added up. Jess believes it all comes down to having encouraging accountability, embracing the something is better than nothing mindset, and taking advantage of the resources that you already have around you.
"Boston Organics makes it easy and affordable to eat more fresh vegetables. I joined a few years ago when my husband and I were starting to prioritize local organic food and wanted the convenience of delivery! I love the ability to customize what’s delivered each week... We love making sweet potatoes wedges on Sunday so we have a nice complement throughout the week to whatever we’re having for dinner!" - Jess

Advice for someone who feels stuck with their bad habits
Start with one small change today. Taking action makes it easier to take more action! Find a small first step you can achieve today that will make you feel successful – when you feel successful it’s easier to keep going and take on bigger changes! If you’re stuck with exercise, fit in a 5 minute walk or 10 jumping jacks, squats and push-ups today. If you’re eating too much sugar, what about having half of what you would normally have next time you reach for something?
