If you are starting 2019 wanting to make some changes, you are not alone. Big changes are hard to sustain over the long term. Also, unbalanced changes lead to feelings of deprivation and stress. A sustainable approach is to tackle no more than two habits at a time, balancing stopping an old habit with picking up a new one.
Do need support in making changes? Take the Make It – Break It Challenge. Make It - Break It is a three week challenge where you choose a habit to MAKE (drinking 64 ounces of water, walking 20 minutes, going to bed 30 minutes earlier) and a habit to BREAK (avoiding added sugar, reducing social media time by a 15 minutes, or drinking one less soda per day).
It can take 21 days for a habit to start to “stick so this challenge will last three weeks, from January 21st – February 10th. When you sign up, you will receive a scorecard to track your progress every day.
To get started, send an e-mail to [email protected] with Make It Break It in the subject line. You can also sign up in person at Blue Bicycle Health & Fitness. Registration deadline is Saturday, January 18th.
