We’re a few weeks away until the New Year.
Time flies so fast, doesn’t it?
What have you learned the past year? and what are some things you want to achieve this year?
In this post, I want to talk to you about how to implement new and healthier habits so you can make the most out of life.
It is important to understand that real change doesn’t happen overnight even though you want to and implementing healthier habits doesn’t have to be complicated or overwhelming.
Change happens when we decide we no longer want to settle for how we feel or look and we are truly ready to make a lifestyle shift… no crazy diets, pills, potions or tricks.
Oftentimes, we know what to do, but it’s the doing part that’s difficult.
How Bad Do You Want It?
Ask yourself, “How bad do I want it?” and “Why do I want to do this?” Give yourself time to answer these questions and write them down on a piece of paper or on your smartphone. This will help you get a clear answer, purpose, and get the motivation to start taking action and move forward.
Start with 1 or 2 habits at a time then build on those successes by adding 1 or 2 more. Pace yourself so you can incorporate these habits as part of your lifestyle. Slow and steady is the way to go.
You can start with the simplest habit first and then go from there. Don’t get overwhelmed, just start with ONE thing and keep it simple.
If you find it hard to start alone, ask someone like a friend (or the Living FitWell community) for support and accountability to help you along the way. It’s helpful to make changes with the help of someone that’s been in your exact shoes before.
Check off the first 1-2 habits you want to start with. Imagine if you were to incorporate even 1 new habit each month for a year, amazing things would happen!
Decide That You Will Start Today And Make It A Priority
The bottom line is you have to really want to make a lifestyle change if you want to live healthier. Let go of the old toxic habits so you can make room to cultivate new and healthy ones. You have to DECIDE! No half-heartedly, but with all your being.
Remember that life is a marathon. Pace yourself and finish strong!
