It’s now time to ge starte !
Decide what you want to achieve — and how to do it!
1 Make a plan
Some of us launch into a new health plan full of good intentions, only to peter out halfway. When time is at a premium, planning is the key to success. A clear idea of your goals will keep you accountable to yourself, helping you to track successes and stay motivated.
2 Create your vision
When you want to make changes to your life, it’s very powerful to create a picture in your mind of what life will be like when you’ve made them.
Think about how you would like to look and feel. Collect images of people who really inspire you. Motivational quotes work a treat: write them down on large cards.
3 Set goals
Write down three habits and behaviours you are working towards. It’s not about focusing on a certain weight or size, but looking beyond that to healthy habits.
Here are some examples:
I will take healthy, homemade lunches to work each day. I will eat when I am hungry and stop when I am full. I will fill half my plate with vegetables at dinner each night. I will go for a refreshing 45-minute walk before work on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday, and a power walk around the park on Saturday.
