Big Results Begin with Small Steps

Reaching a healthy goal – such as losing weight, following a healthy diet or exercising more – never seems to happen fast enough. It takes time for healthy habits to become part of your daily routine. It’s important not to bite off more than you can chew.
 
Starting with one small step toward your goal and building on that with another, and then another can add up to big results. Here are some tips to help you stay on track.
 
1.  Take it easy. Break your big goal into small ones.
If you want to lose 20 pounds, set a first-step goal of 5 pounds. Take a look at what you eat and 
drink to see where you can make a healthy substitution. For example, you could swap water
for soda, or a piece of fruit for a cookie.
 
2. Know who you are. If you don’t cook for yourself, making healthy food choices may be a 
challenge. Likewise, if you’re not a morning person, the 6 a.m. spin class may not be for you. Be 
honest about your strengths and weaknesses so you can set reachable goals.
 
3. Find the small moments. Small practices can help you reach your goal. For example, if you want 
to exercise more, take the stairs rather than the elevator. Or to stay hydrated, carry a water 
bottle with you.
 
4. Be consistent. It takes about two to three months (60 to 90 days) to create a habit. Be patient 
and consistent with the healthy habit you want to create. Keep track of your progress.
 
5.  Don’t forget to celebrate your “wins.” Give yourself a pat on the back and reward yourself for 
your successes, no matter how small they are. It can help you stay motivated to reach your overall 
goal.
