Creating and Implementing Healthy Habits

We live in an age where we are overly saturated with information about how to better ourselves. What was once a niche practice for mentors, coaches, and mental health practitioners, is now available on-demand across the web.

But with this treasure trove of knowledge at our fingertips, it can be difficult to see what is worth our time and what is not.

But we’re here to make sure that your bad habits become a distant memory. This blog post will guide you through the importance of building healthy habits, and most importantly – how to make them stick!

Why is it Important to Build Healthy Habits?

Healthy habits are among the best ways to improve your health, happiness, productivity, and quality of life. They also make it possible to build on new goals because they create good foundations for more positive changes in your life. Not only that, they open up the door for numerous benefits including enhanced creativity, improved mental health, and better sleep. Lastly, healthy habits are vital in giving you back a sense of control over your life, from all those outside sources influencing your behavior.

How do you Create and Implement Healthy Habits?

Now that you’ve received your sign from the universe, you know that changing your habits is VITAL to your health. But creating and implementing these habits is where the true value lies:

  • Healthy habits need to be simple and easy to do

It is the simplicity that makes them easier to implement. Start with ones that take only a few minutes, like drinking more water, taking the stairs instead of the lift, or taking a walk after dinner.

  • Healthy habits should give you satisfaction and feelings of accomplishment

Things like finishing work on time, having a meal with your family, or going for a walk to de-stress are all amazing habits to implement that allow you to actually feel like you deserve a break. Because you do.

  • Healthy habits should also beachievable

These changes should not cause stress, make you feel overwhelmed, or require a lot of motivation. If you feel like you don’t have time or energy then go back and keep thinking about what makes sense for your life, otherwise, they are less likely to stick.

  • Healthy habits should add value to your life

They should be fun, not feel like another chore – as a woman, we know there are enough of those! They should make you feel good about yourself because people accomplish the most when they enjoy what they are doing.

How to make healthy habits stick?

If this isn’t your first rodeo, chances are you’ve tried before, but struggled with making healthy habits stick. We got your back, use these tips:

  • Healthy habits should be something that is planned into your daily life.

Habits only work if they are instinctual. For that to happen, new habits should be done at the same time and in roughly the same way, every day. They should form part of your daily routine, at a pre-chosen time that makes sense for you.

  • Consistency.

Unfortunately, there’s no getting around that sometimes it’s hard work. But alas, as with all good things, healthy habits need time to develop. They can only become part of your daily routine if they are done consistently.

While it may seem impossible when you first start, with time they become a part of your life’s journey and like second nature to you. So it only makes sense that they may not work if you skip days, change the times, or change the way you do them.

Key Takeaways

We know it’s not always easy to find the time in your busy schedule, but it’s important that you do. If you want to learn more about becoming your best you.

Remember, once your new healthy habits have become part of your everyday life, maintaining them will be an easy task.

Since there’s no time like the present to start living the life that you have dreamt of, what are you waiting for? Your new, happy, healthy, and organised life awaits…
