1. Create an Awareness

Most persons do things regularly that they are not even aware are habits. From bathing regularly to brushing twice a day etc, we live out these health habits without being conscious of them.

The first step to making good health habits is to note and become aware of your daily health habits. Do more often and intentionally the good ones and avoid the things that trigger the bad ones.

 

2. Create a Health Plan

Most times we are too preoccupied with having luxurious business plans and goals that we relegate making a health plan to the background – in a worst-case scenario, we don’t have health plans at all.

If you want to begin taking your health seriously, you should consider having a robust but simple health plan.

If you eat junks a lot, you might consider changing your regular route where these junks are sold. Some questions you can answer in making a health plan are:

1.       What kind of diet have I been on for the past five years?

2.       Is it impacting my health negatively?

3.       Do I need to see a dietician?

4.       Have I been so concerned about what I eat on a daily basis?

5.       What health rules am I practicing?

3. Be Consistent

 The best thing is always easy to start, but staying on it over a long period of time is the problem. You must realise changes don’t take place overnight.

 

4. Think Future

As you decide to stay on track, visualise your expectations in the long run. Think about how happy and fulfilled you’d be when you have the type of health you always wished for.

5. Be Accountable

We can’t possibly score ourselves well. We might be too soft or hard on ourselves. Get your loved ones involved in your health plan. Let them help watch and keep you on track.
