We all need healthier habits to which we can commit, but this is easier said than done. So we have compiled an action plan to help you achieve your goals.
Healthy Goal Action Plan
- To begin, start by laying out a plan to success and a specific goal you would like to achieve. Whether it is to lose a few pounds or stop eating so much candy, your plan can be in depth or quite simple; it is up to you and how you feel you will be the most successful.
- The next step is asking for support from the ones closest to you. This will help hold you accountable to your goals and keep you motivated knowing others are cheering you on! This is also a great way to create a support system for those hard times that may come and go.
- Tracking your progress is the next important step. Whether you do this by taking pictures, tracking calories, or keeping a journal, all of these methods will help you see the progress you have made when it feels like you haven’t made any!
- The last step is to be patient and reward yourself! Making the decision to develop healthier habits is a hard one and one that will not come overnight. Have the patience to commit to these changes and continue your journey toward success.
When you do see progress, reward yourself! Nothing feels better than tackling a goal and rewarding yourself with that piece of chocolate or purse you have been eyeing for a while. It will also keep you motivated to continue to your end goal!
