How to Quit Your Bad Habits and Get Fit
Posted: October 20, 2015
When it comes to our health, a few bad habits can really keep us down. Although we may do the majority of things the right way, a handful of negative or unhealthy habits can wreak havoc.
If you have more bad habits than you care to admit, check out these tips for quitting them for good and getting fitter than ever.
Bad snacking habits can be one of the hardest to break. If you like to snack, then focus on exchanging the bad foods for good ones. Buy fruits, veggies, or nuts, and eat them in place of chips or candy. This way you can keep the habit, but it will be much healthier.
This can be really tough as well, especially if you drink caffeinated sodas. You may not only enjoy the habit, but you may be literally addicted. To quit this habit, you will need to evaluate the extent of your habit. If you are extremely addicted, you may need to cut back one soda at a time. Replace your soda with water, flavored water, or some other healthier drink. As time goes on, this will likely become easier. If you can make it through the beginning phases, then getting through the rest will be a breeze — and will definitely be worth it in the end.
This is really referring to a non-exercise habit. If you haven’t made exercise a habit, it might be time to give it a try. The key to making this habit stick is to start off very slowly. If you haven’t been exercising, and then suddenly run miles upon miles, of course you aren’t going to stick with it. Try a simple walk instead. Try something easy on the body and mind, and then work your way into something more challenging. Breaking the lazy habit and picking up the exercise habit will bring a load of good to the body and your overall health.
