I want to share with you an easy way to incorporate a healthy habit into your daily life. According to Jeff Walker, in order to succeed in your career or business, you need to have a strong mindset. As he mentions “ Your mental game takes practice. You don’t just flip a switch and have a great mindset… this is where your self-care comes in… the way you take care of yourself, and the habits and rituals and practices you create in your life, are critical because you have to keep working on your mental game, and making it stronger. “.
I know, you might argue there is no time to add healthy habits into your busy schedule, or maybe you simply forget, I hear you, but I promise you that those steps by Jeff are easy to follow:
- On a piece of paper (or on your phone) list 8 to 10 healthy habits/practices you would like to incorporate into your life (for example, get hydrated, exercise, walk, meditate, take my vitamin D supplement, etc).
- Now, look at your list, which one habit do you feel that your body really needs, choose only one. Then create a habit implementation statement using the following template:
“I will [behavior] at [time] in [location].” or “I will [activity] [frequency].”, for example, if I wanted to drink 2 more glasses of water, my statement can be “I will drink 2 more glasses of water daily”.
3. Take that same habit and think about how you can fit that into your existing daily routine (this is called habit stacking) and create a habit stacking statement using the following template:
“After [current habit], I will [new habit].”, so, for example, “After I brush my teeth in the morning, I will drink 2 glasses of water”. Viola! Now it is part of your new routine.
Being healthy is a beautiful journey and let’s take it one step at a time. You can do this.
Stay Happy & Healthy,
