How to Create Healthy Habits Easily
Do you struggle to eat healthy and exercise? Wonder why some people do it so naturally and you have to struggle on a daily basis counting those stupid calories, resisting temptations, and becoming increasingly frustrated that you keep failing to “stay on track?”
Here are some steps to help you get started. Make sure you seek support as we are social creatures and need support in order to succeed.
Let me ask you one question….how often do you brush your teeth? Are there days that you forget? Of course not!! That would be gross! It’s automatic that you never wake up forgetting. You’ve built an ingrained habit. That’s what we do at Happy Food. We make healthy lifestyles automatic. Here are just a few tips to get you started before we start working together for true success:
- Set realistic intentions. What do you want to accomplish? Everyone wants overnight results so as an example, we go from never moving to hitting the gym 5-7 times a week for 45 minutes. That’s unrealistic and you WILL fail! Baby steps.
- Celebrate small successes. We always focus on our downfalls and fail to see where we actually succeed so we unintentionally feed the wrong fire, making it feel like being healthy is impossible. Actually, it’s trying to be perfect that is impossible. Being healthy is easy!
- Create rituals. Without rituals, our brain would literally explode because we make thousands of decisions per day. Just like brushing your teeth takes no thinking, what is your eating and exercising ritual?
- Trust in time. Our society is always looking for short cuts. True transformation takes time, then it becomes your natural deposition. Instead, there’s always someone out there wanting to make money by selling us the latest weight loss product which not only dis-empowers but doesn’t solve our problem. We’re stuck with being fatter, sicker, and feeling even more defeated.
