A healthy person begins with healthy habits.
Almost every year, without fail, I set a list of goals for myself that I want to accomplish. I reflect back on the past year and realize how much of a hot mess I am and become determined to make 2016 my year! No 2017! Ok 2018 is most definitely my year! Sound familiar? Well I don’t know what holds you back, but for me I always set my aims for perfection not wellness. I make a set of goals and convince myself that all in one year I will become as fit as Jillian Michael’s, organized as Martha Stewart, and as fierce and successful as Queen B ( Beyonce btw 😉 ). Yet often our goals fail because we fail to create sustainable, manageable, and realistic healthy habits.
Rome wasn’t built in a day ladies. Not even Oprah has her life that together my friends. Before you get super down about all “work” you need to do on yourself, take a moment to recognize all of the healthy habits and rituals you already have in place in your life.
-Do you brush your teeth every morning? Your dentist would be proud girl!
-Do you make sure you get at least 8 hours of sleep? That’s way better than the average American.
– Do you have an apple every morning for breakfast? You know what they say… an apple a day keeps the doctor away.
I think you get my point. Habits make up our entire life! So make sure you recognize the healthy habits you already have in your life and begin to build off of those behaviors.
New year shouldn’t be about unattainable perfection but instead about new healthy habits.
I’ve heard that it takes 21 days to break a bad habit, but what about a good one? How long does it take to begin forming a new healthy habit?
Sadly, I don’t believe there is an exact time or frame for everyone. Building new healthy habits isn’t a one size fits all approach but a highly individualized process!
Remember that your new healthy habit is for you alone. Don’t be tempted to compare your journey to someone else, who has already easily mastered this habit. This is your health journey, not theirs.
So the first step is PICK A HABIT YOU ACTUALLY WANT TO DO!
So many people set these new intentions but they have no desire to do them. It’s like saying you want to add the habit of eating broccoli to your daily diet, but you hate broccoli. You are doomed for failure. Before you decide on a new habit make sure you actually want to do it, will enjoy it, and it will benefit your whole well-being.
Know what you want to start? Then let’s get going sisters! Follow these 8 steps below and you will be on your way to healthy habit in no time!
Starting a healthy habit can be accomplished. Remember sisters that now new habit can’t be formed over night. Set your intentions and be patient with yourself.
