📚 Let's build on our last post about creating a healthy habit.
Did you know that it takes an average of 66 days to form a new habit? That's why at inbalance FITNESS, we believe in taking small, sustainable steps to establish healthy habits that last a lifetime. Here are some science-backed tips to help you make healthy habits a part of your daily routine:
1️⃣ Use "implementation intentions": This means planning exactly when and where you will perform a new habit. For example, "After I wake up, I will do 10 minutes of stretching in the living room." In other words, put it in your schedule, same time, same days, same place to make it easier to establish the habit.
2️⃣ Create a cue: Choose a cue that triggers the behavior you want to establish. For example, if you want to start meditating, use a specific sound or scent to signal the start of your practice. Often, music is a great cue. Put together some of your favorite songs for your workout.
3️⃣ Practice self-compassion: Be kind to yourself when you slip up, and remember that forming new habits is a process that takes time and patience. This is the big one, be kind to yourself. The trick is to get back on the "habit horse" as soon as possible if you fall off.
