Have you ever thought what you’d like to change about your life? Some people want more money, some want better health and others just want that energy they had when they were younger. It’s never to late to change your life. However, the longer you wait, the harder it is to do, no matter what your desire. I can’t help you make more money, but I can help you look and feel better. That can be pretty helpful when you have other changes you want to make.
Change is tough, but you can do it with baby steps.
If you want anything in life that requires that you make changes, don’t expect to do them all at once. Making a true change requires that it becomes a habit. Creating a habit takes as long as 66 days, according to recent studies. Start small if you’re uncomfortable with change or don’t believe you can accomplish your goal. Instead of entering a healthy eating, exercise program all at once, consider starting with taking a walk twice a day. Walk 15 minutes in the morning and the same amount of time in the evening. You’ll notice how easy it becomes after just a few weeks and how much you miss it if you skip it after a few months.
Build on each change you make.
If eating healthy is your goal, cut out one unhealthy food from your diet and replace it with something healthy. Maybe cutting out sugar is too much, but you might be able to substitute bottled water for the soft drink you normally have. Make a new change every few weeks. Normally, people are ready for a complete program after a couple of months and feel they can tackle both a workout and healthy eating program, especially after they notice how great they feel after just one small change.
Embrace the change.
You can do it and once you realize that, you’re on your way to success. Whether you start by dipping your toe in the water and making small changes or jump in and go for the whole program, you’ll be glad you did when you start to see and feel the differences. The new you will have more energy, look better, be healthier and enjoy life more. That can boost your confidence to make other life changes, too.
