You've selected your target behavior for change, you've begun to think about S.M.A.R.T goal setting in regard to this behavior, you've learned how to set action steps that will lead you to this goal, and you've begun to understand how manipulating your environment is a huge proponent to making change in your life.
Lastly, we need to build HABITS to ensure these changes we've worked so hard to make remain.
How do we do this?🤷🏼♀️
PRACTICE. It's as simple as that. PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE.
Now, I don't just mean practice all of these skills once or twice per week. NO. You need to implement these skills you have learned each and every day in order to begin to build them into your routine. The more you engage in what you have learned over these past few days, the faster you are going to be well on your way to a new and improved lifestyle.
Let's take our unhealthy snacking example again. What habits should we be practicing DAILY to try to limit unhealthy snacking?
1️⃣Keep the food out of the house--plain and simple, do not buy it!
2️⃣Keep healthy snacks on hand
3️⃣Increase water intake to combat those nasty hunger pangs.
4️⃣Incorporate healthy fats into each meal (within reason) to keep yourself satiated.
5️⃣Travel with "on-the-go" healthier options--stick protein bars, nuts, dried fruit, etc in the center console (this leaves no excuse for making that daily stop for FroYo on your way home
These are just a few of the steps you can begin to incorporate if unhealthy snacking is a POOR habit you’ve taken on.
Apply small changes, one at a time and with repetition. Soon, it will become engrained👌🏼
