When creating a new habit, try to tie it to something you already do each day. You may find this formula helpful: “After I ____, I will ____”. Here are some ideas:
• After I wake up, I will drink a glass of water.
• After I eat dinner, I will go for a 10-minute walk.
• After I get home from work, I will think of 1 thing I’m grateful for.
Life can get busy. And sometimes it can be hard to fit everything in, especially when it comes to your own health. That’s why adding a new healthy habit to something you already do each day may make it easier to stay on track with your new habit. In time, it may even become part of your daily routine. Just make sure you choose simple new habits. And add more as you can.
