Health by Habit

Habits can make or break our health. By creating healthy habits, we can improve our physical and mental health and well-being over time. In this writing, we will talk about how to start forming healthier habits and the potential benefits of doing so.

Identify Your Goals.

Healthy habits don’t just happen. It is essential to set specific goals that reflect your values and needs. These goals should be realistic and measurable and have a timeline. Put yourself in the driver’s seat – identify your goals and stick to them! For example, your plan might be to drink eight glasses of water per day or start exercising three times a week for at least thirty minutes each time.

Make a Plan.

Creating a plan is the best way to ensure you stick to your healthy habits. Make a written list of all steps outlining how and when you plan to reach your goals. Ensure that you identify each practice’s how, when and where so it becomes part of your routine. Display it somewhere visible, like your fridge or on the wall in your bedroom, as an easy reminder of what you want to achieve and any little progress made.

Implement Changes Gradually.

Don’t overwhelm yourself by committing to too much change at once. Take small steps, like including a healthy habit in your life, such as drinking more water or going for a 20-minute walk every day. As you get used to the changes, you can start introducing more, and eventually, it will become part of your routine without you having to think about it.

Track Progress Regularly.

Establishing healthy habits is easier if you track your progress regularly. Whether it’s through writing it down in a journal or using an app on your phone, following the changes regularly can help keep you accountable and motivated to continue with your health journey. Periodically review and reflect on your progress towards the goals you have set for yourself. This can help ensure that positive changes become permanent.

Adapt Along the Way.

It’s completely normal to realize that the plan you initially created doesn’t quite fit your lifestyle or needs. Don’t be afraid to adjust your health plan as life progresses and your needs change — it’s the only way you will achieve lasting changes in your health. Keep an open mind: try different methods, experiment with different approaches, and be flexible. The more resilient you are when it comes to shifting goals or plans, the closer you come to achieving success!

I wrote this book to get you out of the negative diet cycles of believing that you have to live with restrictions and give up entire food groups to be happy and free.

In my own experience and from observing the thousands of women who have completed my online programs, I believe that working toward the feeling of freedom (the better of the F-words)—in all areas of life—leads to the highest levels of well-being.

Freedom from the guilt we feel around food choices, freedom from negative self-talk, and freedom from knowing we can feel better but not understanding how to make it happen.
