How To Start Leading a Healthy Life

How To Start Leading a Healthy Life
October 03, 2018

Do you ever look at yourself in the mirror and wish away those muffin handles? Or that baby fat that you never quite managed to lose?

Leading a healthy life is something many of us aspire to. But it's just so easy to get caught up in "I don't have enough time" or "I'll start next week".

We're so comfortable in our daily routine that it's difficult to break out and make new habits.

95% of Our Brain is Subconscious

There's actually a really powerful reason why we prefer comfortable and familiar. Most of brain acts on "autopilot".

That's super useful when it comes to performing repetitive tasks such as brushing your teeth. 

You don't need to "remember" to brush your teeth.

You just do it on autopilot.

The problem is that we also do a lot of "not so great" things on autopilot. Like reach for a jar of cookies when we're feeling stressed.

Making New Habits is Easy

On one hand, making new habits is easy when you become aware that you're fighting "familiar and comfortable" autopilot. You just have to get your brain to take control of your body again.

Except that "body autopilot" is quite powerful. (Can't remember actually reaching for the cookies but you seem to have finished the entire packet?)

Start By Making One Small Change

Do something small and different! 

Walk the kids to school a different way. Even if it's just the other side of the pavement! 

It may feel strange but that's the point.
