How to Form a Healthy Habit


They say it takes 21 days to form a habit, but we're going to show you how to do it in 5 steps! 

Starting the new year with goals to live a healthier life is an age old tradition. You might call them new year's resolutions. But we resolve to help you make healthy habits for the new year, and all year long! 

Step One
Decide what change you want to make and choose just one habit to set. Be as specific as possible. Maybe you want to reduce the amount of time you spend on your phone or social media. Or maybe you want to eat less junkfood. Whatever the change is, remember to be specific and stick to one change at a time. 

Step Two
Reflect on the unhealthy habit and think about the best matched healthy habit to replace it with. In the case of the phone usage, a healthy habit might be to limit your social usage to a few hours a day. 

Step Three
Be realistic about the change you want to make. Think about what limitations you will encounter as you strive to change the habit. It will take some time to make the change so make sure you pick one that you can stick too. Also, keep it small because you want to enjoy success.

Step  Four
Reward yourself each week that you make progress toward changing your habit. You have to celebrate every success as you're getting closer to achieving success.

Step Five
Commit to your new habit and enlist your friends and family to cheer you on and support you along the way.
