Lying in the bed on a lazy Sunday morning I look at my calendar on the phone scrolling on social media looking at all the people flaunting their healthy food, healthy habit, someone posting healthy body doing yoga & all I'm doing is being a couch potato just scrolling my phone while eating last nights pizza, wonder how can I set healthy routine, I want to be healthy but just don't know where to begin.
Does this sound like you ?Don't worry you aren't alone, I used to be this person too, things changed for me, so will it for you! The fact that you're reading this post shows that you have already taken a step towards setting healthy routine.
Changing routines to be healthier can be a challenging task, but it is definitely worth it in the long run. Here are some fun ways & tips to help you get started:
Identify your unhealthy habits: Take some time to reflect on your current routine and identify any unhealthy habits that you may have. This could be things like eating junk food, not getting enough sleep, or not exercising regularly or eating when stressed.
Set realistic goals: Once you have identified your unhealthy habits, set some realistic goals for yourself. For example, if you currently don't exercise at all, start with a goal of exercising for 30 minutes three times a week. Exercise can be anything fun, I loved yoga so I picked it, if you love dancing, go for it, even running, cycling to start with.
Create a plan: Once you have set your goals, create a plan to achieve them. This could include things like meal planning, scheduling in exercise time, and setting a regular sleep schedule. If you're someone who can't plan get help from health coach. (I do provide create plans if you need it, check out my programs).
Make small changes: Trying to overhaul your entire routine all at once can be overwhelming. Instead, make small changes over time. For example, if you currently eat a lot of junk food, start by swapping out one unhealthy snack per day for a healthier option.
Stay consistent: Consistency is key when it comes to changing routines. Try to stick to your plan as much as possible, and don't beat yourself up if you slip up occasionally. In the healthy habit program I provide tips on how to stay consistent.
Get support: Changing routines can be challenging, so don't be afraid to ask for support from friends and family. You could also consider working with a personal trainer or health coach or nutritionist to help you stay on track.
Remember that changing routines to be healthier is a process, and it won't happen overnight. I want you to be patient with yourself, be compassionate towards yourself and celebrate small successes along the way.
