Many people act or behave a certain way because it is simply their routine or the way they have always done things. We understand that life has been very different for the last few years, people are choosing to commute to the office or continue to work from home and for most families kids now back at school – our schedules and routines have certainly changed.
We know that success lies in our daily habits and we’d like to encourage and remind you the importance of reflecting, readjusting and resetting habits in order to stay on track and progress. Think about what it is you need to prioritise that will make a difference and your life easier. To make it as simple as possible, let’s start by implementing one of the following tasks this week:
- One healthy habit focused on Eating. E.g. Meal prep at night for the following day, keep an ongoing shopping list in your phone Notes or plan your next meal using MyVision.
- One healthy habit focused on Exercise. E.g. Set your alarm earlier so you arrive to PT on time to maximise your session, schedule an activity rather than food related catchup with friends or go for a quick walk at lunchtime.
- One healthy habit focused on Mindset. E.g. Turn on Sleep Schedule/Do Not Disturb on your phone to minimise screen time before bed, journal or listen to a soulful podcast on your commute to work or write out your top priorities for the week.
Continue the habit you’ve chosen daily for the week, two or however long it takes for you to feel that you can complete this habit without needing a reminder. Then, select your next habit to implement, and so on. "A habit is a routine or behaviour that is performed regularly and, in many cases, automatically." "These improvements were minor, but they gave me a sense of control over my life." - James Clear, ATOMIC HABITS (highly recommend you give this book a read!)
There's no greater feeling than being able to tick off a goal achieved.
