Tips to Make Healthy Lifestyle Changes Stick

It happened to all of us before; we vow to eat healthy and exercise, but in a one week or one month, we are back to eating junk food on the couch. So how can you make the healthy lifestyle changes stick? Follow these tips.

  • Include your friends and families in your plans. Try to also find a work-out buddy. Having support can help keep you on track. Also sharing your successes with them will keep you motivated. shutterstock_160379219.jpg
  • Try to break one bad habit at a time. This way you can tackle each challenge on its own.
  • Forgive yourself when you slip up, and use it as a chance to learn your triggers.
  • Reward yourself. For instance, go to a movie or buy a pair of shoes when you achieve a short-time goal. Pick bigger rewards for bigger goals.
  • Do not get discouraged. Understand that creating a new habit can take time, but it will be rewarding at the end.
