3 Habits To Start Now


"Mindset, habits, and routines are the building blocks for success towards your wellness goals."

With the new year being less than a month away, I've been intentionally implementing habits that I'd like to take with me into 2021. The habits that I've started, I hope to keep not only in the new year but for many years to come.

Today I'm sharing these three very achievable habits with you guys so that we can grow in the right direction together in 2021!


 HABIT #1 - MAKE YOUR HEALTH A PRIORITY 
  • Eat healthier foods. This can be as simple as making sure there are greens on your plate for every meal. If you don't like eating veggies, veggie smoothies and juices are a great alternative.
  • Move your body. Doing as little as 15 minutes of cardio, dancing, weight-lifting, yoga, or anything else that gets your body moving is enough for positive changes to happen in the brain.
  • Unplug from technology. This allows us to reconnect with ourselves, to be present, and it gives us the ability to recharge and reset. I personally like to unplug from socials on the weekends.

 HABIT # 2 - TREAT YOURSELF WITH KINDNESS 
  • Less negative-self talk. Bringing awareness to your thoughts is a great way to decrease negative-self talk. When you catching yourself thinking negative things about yourself, stop those thoughts, and replace them with kind words. Start talking to yourself the way you'd talk to a loved one you really care about. 
  • More self-love. Practicing self-love is scientifically proven to produce positive feelings, boost your confidence and self-esteem, and it can decrease mental health disorders like anxiety and depression. (Check out this article to learn 10 ways to practice self-love.)

 HABIT #3 - HAVE AN ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE 
  • Express what you're thankful for each day. Take a minute and make a mental note, or write an actual note, of 3 things you are grateful for in that moment. Taking notice of what you are grateful for will increase your appreciation for the things you have. Research shows that by developing an Attitude of Gratitude we can feel more fulfilled and joyful each day.

I strongly believe that these three achievable habits can make a world of a difference to our overall well-being if we stick to them. This is why I encourage you guys to practice these habits for yourself and experience the positive changes that come from implementing this routine.

Here's to getting better together in 2021. Until next time friends, take care!
