The Practice of Good Health Equals Success

February 19, 2022

Maybe your health isn't what you want it to be. Perhaps you've vowed to go on a diet time and time again only to sabotage your efforts. Or, maybe you keep finding yourself skipping those workouts and plan to do better next week.

Before you know it, it's next month or even worse, six months later, and you're still feeling the pressure of not being where you want to be in life.

I've been there. Sometimes I'm still there and have to remind myself that it's a matter of habits and triggers.

Consider this Jim Rohn quote - "motivation is what gets you started. Habits are what keep you going".

  • What habits do I want to get rid of, and which habits do I want to include in my daily life to get where I want to be?
  • What are you motivated to change?
  • How do you want your life to look?
  • What excites you?

It's easy to say, if you're not happy where you are in life, change it. But it's another story to actually do it.

However, if you decide to change something, know that you've signed up for something uncomfortable because change is usually uncomfortable.

First, ask yourself, do I want this change?

If it's a resounding yes, make a vow with yourself. Vow that you won't give up and that you'll do your very best to keep your commitment to yourself.

Below are five tips to help you create new habits and keep that commitment.

  1. Know your triggers - be specific. What event, person, situation, location, or time of day sets you up for a bad habit?
  2. Old habit - identify the habit you want to break. Get specific.
  3. Plan accordingly - be mindful of the triggers that set you up for the bad habit. Example: an office meeting with sweets on the table.
  4. New habit (behavior) - how can you plan for the situation (change the trigger) so you don't fall into the trap of the old habit?
  5. Practice - if you do things in smaller chunks, they can lead to significant action. Example: Spend 5 minutes working out. Before you know it, you've built a new habit and will eventually go longer. The key is to be consistent.

On a final note, it's never too late to start something new.

If you think you're too old, if you wait until you're ready, or you're 10 pounds thinner, you could end up waiting another six months or six years for the perfect time to make the changes.

Give yourself the gift of being your best friend. What would you tell them?

If you'd like some more information on creating better habits, I recommend Automatic Habits by James Clear. It's a great book.
