Going into the New Year you probably have already visualized what you'd like to accomplish though forming those healthy habits to stay consistent can sometimes be a little tricky. But, don't worry! We've put together some strategies to help you turn those healthy intentions into rock-solid habits!

1. Start Small, Win Big

Ever heard of the phrase "baby steps"? Well, that’s the secret sauce! Want to start exercising? Don’t aim for a marathon on day one. Begin with a short walk or a quick workout. Achieving small victories fuels your motivation to keep going.

2. Make it Ridiculously Easy

Make your habit so easy you can’t say no. If it's about eating healthier, prep your veggies and fruits in advance. Want to read more? Keep the book by your bedside. The easier it is to do, the more likely you are to do it!

3. Cue it Up

Trick your brain by setting up cues. Want to drink more water? Keep a bottle in plain sight. Trying to meditate? Set a reminder or link it to an existing routine, like right after brushing your teeth.

4. Buddy System

Everything’s better with a buddy, right? Find someone who shares your goal or enthusiasm. Having a workout buddy, a study partner, or a cooking pal not only makes it fun but keeps you accountable.

5. Forgive, Adjust, Persist

Missing a day or slipping up doesn’t mean game over. Forgive yourself, adjust your plan if needed, and get back on the horse. Consistency beats perfection every single time!

6. Track Progress, Celebrate Wins

Tracking your progress, whether it’s through a journal, an app, or colorful stickers on a calendar, helps you see how far you’ve come. Celebrate every milestone, no matter how small.

7. Mindset Magic

Flip the script on your mindset. Instead of saying "I have to do this," try "I get to do this." Changing from obligation to opportunity can make a world of difference in how you approach your habits.

8. Rinse and Repeat

Repetition is the mother of habit-forming! Stick with it. They say it takes around 21 days to form a habit, but it can vary. Consistency is key, so keep at it until it feels like second nature.

9. Stay Flexible

Life happens, and that's okay! Sometimes your routine might need to bend a bit. Be flexible and find ways to adapt your habits rather than abandon them completely.

10. Patience is Key

Rome wasn’t built in a day, and neither are habits. Be patient with yourself. It's a journey, not a sprint. Keep going, and before you know it, you’ll be wondering how you ever lived without these habits!
