3 Simple Hacks for Building Healthy Habits An interview with professor Wendy Wood. Posted Nov 28, 2019. SHARE In fact, studies suggest that it may take six to nine months to build a habit. Ideas to make your habits more fun: Creating a tracker, stick it on your fridge and tick it off, ten ticks in a row means you get a reward.

Play a game, can you top your PB or the amount of writing. For example, use olive oil instead of butter for frying. Reduce salt by adding spices instead. Choose leaner cuts of meat and trim off visible fat before cooking.

Something that I’ve done over the years is to drastically cut down on red meats at home and increase my intake of fish and poultry. When it comes to building habits and creating change, for most of us the problem isn’t a lack of information, it’s a lack of implementation. They say that it takes 21 days to form a new habit. Whilst repetition is important, it’s not the only ingredient and I’m sure we’ve all built new behaviours a lot faster than 3 weeks.

Build Healthy Habits. Plan. Identify unhealthy patterns and triggers. Set realistic goals.

Write down steps to help you achieve them. Change your surroundings. Find ways to make healthier choices easy choices.

Remove temptations. Work for changes in your community, like safe places to walk. Ask for support. Developing long-term healthy habits doesn’t mean you have to give up all of the ‘bad’ stuff entirely and forever.

  • oh my, you’re a genius. I’m having bad laziness/procrastination problems all my life and I haven’t taken action on it until just recently. I’ll try your strategy. If it works, I’ll subscribe.

  • What if people and their decision on your life becomes a obstacle in building habits. Like mom and dad(They try to make your life better, but sometimes makes seriously damaging descisions)

  • Pairing habits has always worked well for me, as long as I make the plan and decision to do so. Like, I made a rule that before I eat I need to do a quick workout, which worked two-fold because I then started using the downtime of preparing food to get a workout in, rather than snacking/grazing. Thanks for this video.

  • What if the habit I want to pick up is picking up after myself. (shelvers open, drawers, toilet seat, stove, dirty dishes, clothes, locking doors).

  • Si haces cadio antes de tu rutina, el glucogeno de los músculos se utiliza antes, y no rendís lo mismo haciendo “pesas”. Por eso siempre se recomienda hacer cardio al final, quitando lo que haces para entrar en calor.

  • I like the idea of setting up reminders because it really is hard to remember something new sometimes.

    I like doing hard or long task for 15min at a time. I break things up and choose what to do during a extremely focused 15min intervals. That way when the villain (Ms. Suella) part of my brain try’s to keep me from getting things done, I say it’s just 15min. You can do 15min, no problem. If 15 is too much try 5 minutes. 15 minutes is my magic number and it’s amazing how much you can do if you’re completely focused.

  • Thanks for including that you went to the bathroom so many times because that’s the one thing that I’m self-conscious about when I drink a lot of water

  • Man I love your videos, even your podcast but i don’t know why I cannot pay attention on them. They don’t catch me like matt ones

  • I already make things easy for me, turn off facebook through apps (but then re-activate it as soon as I can come up with an excuse), I have a set routine (which I then break) and I am just generally stubborn, lazy and unwilling to do set work. Any more tips?

  • Already achieved this level? Still want to massively level-up your self-discipline? Easy, just have kids and play again. I dare you.

  • You are Worthy of everything you desire. Make a Decision of what you want, Back it with Burning Desire and take Aligned Action. Your Life will transform before your eyes ♡ Awesome Video!

  • I intentionally do cardio last s this guarantees i have enough time to do some amount of weightlifting (I don’t value health, i only value the appearance of health,, so 1st thing muscles is the way to go).
