It is important to set one inspirational goal each day for any lifestyle change you are working toward. It doesn’t need to be a giant step forward; remember that progress seems to work best when it’s one baby step at a time.
The goal should be worded as a positive. “I will eat a piece of fruit for a healthy snack” is better than “I won’t eat junk food for a snack.” Your daily goal also should be aligned with your personal likes and dislikes. It’s not reasonable to expect your habits to change totally overnight.
So, keep your focus positive and work toward making a small step in the right direction each day. This strategy will make it more likely that you will achieve your healthy lifestyle goals.
