As Dr Seuss says, you’re off to great places; today is your day! I like that this can be applied to various aspects of our lives, but especially when it comes to our health and fitness. Today is our day to choose the healthy habits that we want in our lives, and we don’t need to wait for anyone to make changes to ourselves. So if you’re looking to start making some healthy changes and start some better habits, then here are some changes that you can start making in your life. But why wait? Start today!
Set a Goal
It can be hard to achieve any kind of goal that doesn’t have a clear endpoint. It can all be very well saying that you want to get fitter. But what does that really mean? Be specific and set yourself some goals. When you define exactly what you want to achieve then it makes it so much easier to make it happen. So start small and then work towards a larger end goal through the smaller goals.
Eliminate Bad Habits. One at a Time
To fill your life with healthy habits, then the bad and unhealthy habits have to go. But it can be hard to just stop doing everything all at once, as it is likely to mean slipping back into a few of the bad habits. Say you drink coffee all day everyday. Then cut back to one or two cups a day to start, and then you can go from there. You could always switch to vaping, using a site like VapeShop, if giving up smoking cold turkey will be too much. Again, once you’ve taken that step, it can be easier to give up the nicotine fix altogether. So just think about what your bad habits are and how you can eliminate them gradually.
Make Time For Health
We’re all at different stages in our lives and with our health. But we all need to take time each day to think about it and do something about it. From eating meals that are low in saturated fat, to taking ten minutes to stretch or meditate, can all have a good impact on our health. If finding the time is a real struggle, then schedule it in as part of your day,s o that you make sure that it gets done.
All aspects of your life can do with being a little more green, but especially when it comes to your diet. Something that you can easily start today is adding more greens into your diet. You could grab a green juice instead of a coffee or add more veggies to your dinner plate. Meal planning can be a good way to make sure that this healthy habit keeps coming back so that your plate is full of green veggies all the time.
