Have you ever felt like wanting to make a change in your life, but it just never seems to stick? Creating a habit - especially a healthy one - is never easy, but can mean the difference between the life you are living and the life you want to have. Knowing how to create a habit and how to continue incorporating it into your daily routine can be achieved with just some simple steps.
Choosing What Makes the List
If creating one healthy habit is hard, trying to do multiple or a dozen at a time can feel downright overwhelming at times. Trying to figure out what goals or desires you prioritize to make a habit is the first step in seeing them through. To start you off I have created a list of ideas of habits that could change your life for the better:
- Creating an exercise routine to incorporate into your daily life
- Start eating whole foods to fuel your body with good energy
- Create a wellness routine made up of supplements to support your health
- Make a fitness goal to achieve at a set later date
- Taking a break from social media every morning to start your day off right
- Meditate every morning
- Journal at least 2-3 times every week to acknowledge emotions you may be having
These are just some of many of the healthy habits you can incorporate into your routine to create a healthier future for yourself. Choosing one or two instead of many can help to make sure you actually can commit yourself to them, rather than finding yourself having too much to balance.
How to Create a Healthy Habit and How to Hold Onto It
Making a plan on how you are going to add these habits into your lifestyle successfully could mean the difference between success and failure. If you find certain aspects of your life an obstacle to completing your goals, the first step is to eliminate these obstacles. An example of this could be if you find that you reach for a bag of chips when you are stressed or bored, making sure to stock your pantry with healthier alternatives might help to replace this unhealthy habit with your new goal.
Mindset is Important
The second thing to remember is to not lose hope. Like any other journey, creating a healthy habit will have its ups and downs. For example, making an effort to be more active in your life is not always going to sound appealing whether that is because you were super tired from work the past day or whatever it may be there are going to be hard days that will be unavoidable. The way to make sure these days aren’t the cause of your lack of motivation is to remind yourself of why you created the goals in the first place. Along with this it is important to remember that failure is natural, and you should not let one mistake or slip up define your entire journey.
Lastly, along with consistently fueling your hope is to be patient. Especially with a goal like losing weight, results will not come overnight but do not let that derail you from the future that you desire. The only way to achieve those goals is one step at a time, and the fact that you are even choosing to take the first step means the difference between seeing the results soon rather than never.
Another tip to remember is to set reminders for yourself. As people we find ourselves having very busy days at times, some even being overwhelming to the point you do not even have time to think about your own needs. Setting reminders on your phone or maybe by adding sticky notes to areas in your house can help you without any extra time needed. A great goal this could be helpful for is if you are hoping to incorporate supplements into your routine.

Change is Never Easy but it is Worth It
Knowing you want to make a change in your life is a great place to be and making sure that you listen to yourself about your needs is vital to creating the best life for yourself. The journey to get there will have its ups and downs, and along the way you may find yourself having other changes you want to make. This summer is a great time to sit down and really ask yourself what healthy habits you want to create - trust me your future you will thank you for it.
