I’m sorry to break it to you, but willpower, going cold-turkey, and starting things on Mondays DOESN’T WORK. Going big right away doesn’t last, it’s the small, committed changes that truly make a big difference in your health.
Here are my 3 favourite small changes that have a HUGE impact:
1. Drink water: How much? Half your body weight in ounces (at least 2 litres) Tips to get more water in a day:
~ Chug a glass in the morning as soon as you wake up
~ Track your water consumption to make sure you get at least 2L before bed
~ Always have water with you when you’re out and about. 2. Plan your meals the day before: Most people like to plan what they are going to wear the next day, so why not spend 10 minutes and plan what you are going to eat? Knowing what you’re going to prepare for the day takes a load of time and pressure off- worth it! I use My Fitness Pal to track my meals. Here’s a link to my training video. Click here 3. Go for walks: How long? 30 minutes a day, every day.
Tips for making walks fun:
~ Call a friend
~ Walk with a friend
~ Listen to podcasts or audiobooks
I promise that these 3 easy changes will have a way stronger and long-lasting impact on your health and habits, than trying to go all-in right away.
