How to commit to healthy habits:
Whether it’s eating healthier, leveling up your exercise, or quitting smoking, committing to a healthy habit means embracing long-term consistency.
For example, instead of “getting more fit”, you could aim to run a 5k or hit the gym three times a week before (or after) work. The same goes for losing weight; setting a target weight can be helpful, but so can keeping your eyes off the scales.
For example, you could aim for reducing your waist by an inch, or resolve to minimize sugar in your diet.
Perhaps you get hungry after work and indulge in chocolate, or you often run into traffic on the way to the gym. It’s easier to make a healthy change if the path to it is clear, so make sure you’ve noted any barriers to your goals and taken steps to remove them.
For example, you could stock your cupboards with fruit instead of sweets, and you could plan your gym time around traffic that won’t make the drive agonizing.
