10 Tips for Building Healthy Habits that Last for Life
The first step in this process, says Diane Randall, a lifestyle coach and consultant who works to help people find a healthy balance between their work and their “real lives,” is to understand what’s important to you. “Then determine the choices and decisions that represent where you want to be,” she said. “Maybe you want to start a new career, lose weight, stop smoking, or start exercising. Whatever the change is, be sure you understand why you want to make the change.” Randall explained that your “level of readiness” will determine your success and how long it will take for you to get there. “Once you make the decision to change, you must practice that new behavior one day at a time until it becomes a habit,” she said, “A lasting change.” Of course, that’s much easier said than done.
