Why Is It So Hard to Build Healthy Habits?

Become Reality bending superhuman

As a species, humans are resistant to change by nature. Because of that resistance, it takes us a while to break a bad habit or implement a new one – up to as long as a month. During this transition period, it is easy to fall back into our old ways, unless we consciously keep ourselves on track until our new change has taken hold as a habit.

In the case of healthy habits, not only can introducing them increase our resistance to disease now, but they also improve life later down the road. That means taking fewer prescribed drugs in the future, maintaining independent living longer and more longevity as we age. But the road to change can be bumpy if not done correctly.

Healthy Eating

Do you like food that is not good for you, Food that is high in calories and fat, If so, you are not alone… and it is not your fault! We are genetically engineered to gravitate toward that kind of food from our ancestral days. Hunting, gathering and exploring the surrounding area took a lot of energy and so food with a lot of calories and fat provided the energy.

But the food today is different than it was eons ago. Today processed and fast food lurks around on every corner, inviting you to come in … and while you are there, super-size everything making for even more fat and calories. But that isn’t the end of the story. Food is addictive. So, if you succumb to eating a lot of processed and fast food, that is what your body becomes accustomed to eating, what it prefers, and in fact, what it craves.

However, the opposite side of the coin is also true. If you start eating healthy, it too over time will become addictive also. The trick is to make small incremental changes over time and not a big change all at once. That way your body will slowly change and adapt to your new way of eating. What gets people into trouble and they fail is they try to make too much of a change in too short a time. Don’t quit eating bad food cold turkey – slowly start eating less bad food and more good food over the course of say a month.

Healthy Fitness

The same rationale of change also applies to exercising. At the start of each New Year, people make all-or-nothing commitments in the form resolutions where they are going to conquer the world fitness-wise – exercise five days a week, run a marathon in a month, etc. But after the first time or two in the gym, they are so sore they can hardly move. They take a few days to heal up and never return to the gym again.

Instead, they should have started slowly by doing some short easy workouts a day or two the first week and gradually increase the frequency, workout time and type of workout over the course of the first month.

Building healthy habits is a process of setting an attainable and realistic end goal with several milestones of mini-goals along the way. Be sure to reward yourself in a positive way after reaching each milestone as it provides the mental boost to continue forging ahead to the next one.

New Year Resolutions, Goals to Your Success & Gifts

Cheers to Your Success in New Year!

As another year passes us by, we think how during it we lost the enthusiasm specific for the beginning of a fresh year, the challenging plans and the emotions of every work morning. They’re likely lost in the actions, deadlines, targets and meetings that we met within the days of the past year. Whenever a fresh beginning comes, our plans have to be critiqued, and written down to make your New Year’s resolutions.

Managing Resolutions

Resolutions and dreams aren’t insignificant. They expose where hidden gifts, passion and verve lie. Whether it’s to skate in the Olympic Games, sing in a chorus, redo your bath or do comedy, when your resolutions are clearly expressed; they’re much more likely to be accomplished.   What do you wish to do, see, achieve and go through? View a wide range of regions while you’re pondering your life and your values, including your vocation, the arts, physical accomplishments, funds, education and community service.   How do you wish to feel? Do you wish to have a family? Produce a more substantial one? How would you wish those who love you most to depict you and the life you live? Would you like to alter your mentality or how you relate to individuals? Better a core relationship? Be honest.   Go over and re-prioritize your goals till they reflect the life you wish to live.

Determine your life goals

Make goals for ten years from now, five years, one year–and then one month. Now prioritize them. Break every goal into subtasks that have to be accomplished. For instance, if a financial goal is to be debt-free in 2 years, you may decide to arrange a budget, spend less than you bring in and refinance your mortgage to take down your monthly payment. Determine a time frame and priority for every subtask

Utilize your daily to-do list

Do it as a means to accomplish even your life goals. Now that you’ve separated your goals into accomplishable tasks, integrate those tasks into your list and mark them off, one at a time.

Recap and re-prioritize your goals on a regular basis and when you suffer inevitable reversals. You might find that they alter over time, or that particular objectives get put on hold while you work at others.

Your goals might affect your family. You may do this work together. If you’ve kids, bring them into the loop and totally consider their thoughts. If an objective is to spend more time together as a household, and one answer is for you to work only part-time, ask loved ones what they’d be willing to give up to acquire more time with you. You may be surprised.

Commit to following through with your plan of action. You’ve already gone farther than most. Remain centered on the process and reward yourself– or at any rate notice–when something you’ve always wanted is really accomplished

Plan challenging objectives in the New Year

Look forward to a raise in your business figures to up to 15%, to more customers, further development of your site, launching new products or proposing fresh actions and actions. Capitalize on the end of the year evaluation and let it redefine your objectives and tell you clearly what you want and intend in the future.

Why not a qualifying course?

No one is stopping you to learn something new at all times. Settle a challenging plan like learning a new foreign language or personal development through different learning courses.

Ask for a promotion

Assure your talent is used at its level best and that you’re given the possibility to do as many things as you want. If you feel this isn’t going the way you want it would, then ask for the promotion that may bring you more responsibilities. And if you think you’ve earned it, a raise too.

Send positive vibrations

Two sad and old plants, a grey desk in the middle of a sad décor … to the contrary, you’ll breathe easily once you have added some color spots here and there, like a colored painting, a plant with happy flowers or a decorative desk vase.

Redefine your colleagues

Seeing the same tired and bored faces day-after-day can be a turn off from work. It isn’t hard to change this; usually all it takes are simple gestures like going to work in the morning with warm pastry, preparing a hot chocolate, going for a lunch coffee for 10 minutes, listening for a few minutes to a happy song.

All these, along with an optimistic and positive mental attitude combined with a wish for more and better will definitely help you achieve your purposes!
