Changing the things that you are already used to is a challenge. It is even worse when you are asked to do the exact opposite. Being asked to develop good habits is not something that happens overnight. This is why before starting to change, make sure that you have a clear plan.
For instance, if you want to develop the habit of eating healthy, you need to have a clear definition of what healthy is. You should also have a plan on what to eat each day so it is easier for you to change your eating habits.
The same thing is true for exercising. You can’t just say you want to stay fit without mapping a plan on how to get to your desired weight. You should also list the activities that you are doing so you will be guided.
Being tempted to move away from what you are supposed to do is also a challenge. It would be easier to just eat something unhealthy that starve yourself. It is easy to just stay home and sleep than to hit the gym.
No matter how tempting it is, you need to stay firm. Stay focused on the goal. Before you know it, you have already moved towards the right direction.
