Step 1: Decide on a health goal that you would like to achieve.
Step 2: Choose 1 small and simple behaviour that will get you towards your goal. Make sure it is something that you are confident you can do on a daily basis.
Step 3: Plan when and where you will do this action. Be specific and choose both a time and a place that you will come across every day of the week.
Step 4: Each day you encounter that time and place, do the action. If it helps, keep a daily record you can mark off whilst you are forming the new habit.
Step 5: Continue until you are doing this new behaviour without even having to think about it. Research suggests that for most us of, it will be no more than 10 weeks.
The important thing to note is that getting healthier doesn’t require huge amounts of time, attention or motivation.
But it does require a desire to change, and a plan to actually make it happen.
