In our journey to a healthier, happier life, we often get a bit overzealous.
We think we can conquer it all, all at the same time.
We work out everyday for an hour, give up the sugar and bread, eat massive amounts of fruits and vegetables, and drink only water.
We do really well and start feeling like a million bucks—for a week or two. Then it gets too hard and we quit.
It’s impossible to stay motivated for the long haul.
Here’s an idea. How about trying to do just a little bit better? Practice one habit at a time. ONE.
Maybe you let go of the before-bedtime snack a couple bedtimes a week.
Or you skip devouring the bread basket when you go out for dinner.
Or in my case, eat the ice cream only a couple times a week instead of five.
Whatever it is for you, remember that little things, over time, add up to big results and a happier life.
Patience, persistence, and understanding why any of this is important to you is key.
Life is delicious. Eat it up.
