Healthy Lifestyle Changes

Health and Fitness is a lifetime commitment. It should be an important area in anyone's life. With one month past the New Year, are you still on track of your New Year's Resolutions? or already slipping?

We got to learn how to lead a performance lifestyle.

How long does it take for a lifestyle change to become routine? According to John C. Norcross, professor of psychology at the University of Scranton, it takes a minimum of three to six months to make a new behavior permanent.

We don't need experts to tell us about behavioral changes. Ask youself. How long does it take to learn to play tennis or piano? On the other hand, picking up a bad habit (e.g., smoking) doesn't just happen overnight, either. Right?!

Over half of the leading causes of death are lifestyle related in modern days. The modern liftstyle and working environment makes us consume more and move less. Healthy lifestyle changes are the key to successful weight loss. Consider the following areas in your life for any improvement for making healthy lifestyle changes.

  • Alcohol use
  • Tobacco use
  • Blood pressure
  • Weight and body fat levels
  • Physical fitness
  • Stress and anxiety
  • Automobile Safety
  • Relationships
  • Rest and sleep
  • Life satisfaction

There are several ways to help you stick to your healthy resolutions and make permanent lifestyle changes:

  • Set a S.M.A.R.T. goal.
  • Enlist your mastermind support group of friends and family.
  • Find a healthy substitute for the bad habit or behavior.
  • Establish a reward system when achieving your goal.
  • Give youself some time to see the results.
