Tips Toward Changing Unhealthy Behaviors!

A lot of people use the beginning of a new year as a time to work on changing unhealthy habits into healthy ones.

Here are some helpful tips:

First of all- get outside and get fresh air and sunshine a few minutes a day......preferably moving your body! This will help you feel better mentally and physically!

Think physical activity rather than exercise!

There are many benefits of movement....  including a healthy heart and brain.

Make a list of behaviors/ things/ situations, etc. that you would like to change in your life... and why.

Then make a list of ways that you can make these positive changes. 

Then break down the list into tiny steps toward what you would like to do/ change.


Reward yourself with something little for doing the first step. Make the reward appropriate. 

(You do not want to reward yourself with any unhealthy reward).

Example- if your are trying to getting more fit and / or eat healthier- do not reward yourself with junk food!  

Happy Healthy Habits!
