Sticking to a healthy eating or exercise plan is difficult, there are no two ways about it. Generations of people have tried and failed to be successful making meaningful change. Perhaps the reason why is that they get too overwhelmed by the big picture in their head, and forget to to little things every day to propel them toward their long-term goals.
Before utilizing the list below, take some time to figure out what your long-term goals are. It makes no real sense to add these small things without that underlying motivation. Once you do, try implementing some of the things below that make sense for reaching your goal, but also realistically fit into your lifestyle. Lasting change comes from making small adjustments to your life. Creating a total upheaval of your habits may work for a week or two, but will eventually fall flat.
Pick one or two small goals each week to focus your attention on. Once it's a habit, add something else. Slow and steady wins the race!
