Do you look at fitness and health influencers on Social Media and think “they make it look so easy! How do you do that?!” To many of us, it can feel very overwhelming, if not unattainable, when you hear of all things “healthy” people do in a day. So many things to do and keep track of; it is paralyzing at first glance. The reality is, it’s not as scary and hard as it sounds!
What we know: It takes 21-28 days to build a habit and the best path to sustainable results toward any goal is consistency.
The largest step is the first. Start with one and focus on getting daily consistency. Below are some key building blocks toward a healthier lifestyle.
- Drink a gallon of water daily. Get bored of water easily? Add BCAAs to add flavor and make your goal of 1 gallon a day much easier!
- Daily Movement (Ex. 8-10k Steps a day, stretching, lifting, dancing in the mirror when cleaning the house)
- Hit Your Daily Protein Goal
Once the first goal transforms to habit, add one or two more.
Ex. Now that you’ve hit a gallon of water a day consistently, add your 10k steps goal.
Studies show that building habits are more attainable and sustainable when partnered with an existing habit! Ex. (New Habit) I will drink 12 oz of water before my morning coffee (existing habit).
When you do fall off track, just get right back to plan. There is no “fixing” your last choice, only improving your next.
Have you ever had a goal that you wanted so badly but didn’t know how to start and then even when you did start, you were unable to keep it up leaving you feeling like you “failed”? I put “failed” in quotations because it is commonly used to describe these obstacles. However, these aren’t failures, they are lessons. Ask yourself: how can I put these lessons to use?
