“We must be willing to let go of the life we have planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us.” – Joseph Campbell

7 Top Tips For Maintaining Healthy Habits

How can I maintain healthy habits?

Yes, Maintaining Healthy Habits, can feel overwhelming at times but the most successful people maintain momentum through daily and weekly rituals.

Here are the key mindset fundamentals for success.

1. Aim for progress NOT perfection. Small consistent changes in the right direction are key.

2. Celebrate your successes – daily, weekly. This can be easier if you record them or have an accountability buddy. Ie, weekly or monthly weigh-in & measurements, food and exercise diary.

3. Identify key habits that keep you on track – such as getting enough sleep (in bed by 10 pm), exercising daily, planning meals and cook ups each Sunday.

4. Create daily rituals. Ie, 2 glasses water on rising, exercise before breakfast.

5. Lose the excuses and stories. If you fall off the wagon, dust yourself off and get straight back up there. This is building your resilience and persistence. Getting off track can reinforce how nice on track is.

6. Not working for you – find another way. There are many paths to the same outcome. Have an injury or setback, modify to accommodate it and keep going. Momentum is key.

7. Visualize daily where you want to go. Hook into the feeling of being there – put a name to it. Is it strong, vibrant, energized, clear………? Seeing the  destination gives you something to aim for, but it’s the person who you become along the way that really matters.

Research suggests that achieving and maintaining a healthy weight takes a long-term commitment. Rapid weight loss is more likely to be temporary. It also puts you at greater risk of regaining the weight you lost, plus more.

You need to focus on what works in the long run. This means viewing healthy habits not as something you adopt for a few months, but as ongoing changes to your lifestyle. – Australian Government – Department of Health

Naturopath Mental Health Melbourne – ‘Mindfulness’ is a hot topic of late, as it is increasingly recognized as an effective way to reduce stress, increase self-awareness, enhance emotional intelligence, and effectively handle painful thoughts and feelings.

Although mindfulness has only recently been embraced by Western psychology, it is an ancient practice found in a wide range of Eastern philosophies, including Buddhism, Taoism and Yoga. Mindfulness involves consciously bringing awareness to your here-and-now experience with openness, interest, and receptiveness. It is about waking up, connecting with ourselves, and appreciating the fullness of each moment of life. A profound way to enhance psychological and emotional resilience, and increase life satisfaction.

Naturopath Mental Health Melbourne – What is Mindfulness And How Can It Help Me?

Mindfulness is the basic human ability to be fully present, aware of where we are and what we’re doing, and not overly reactive or overwhelmed by what’s going on around us. – Mindful

Holistic Approach to a Healthy Lifestyle – 8 Things Happy People Do Every Morning

For many of us, mornings begin in a rushed panic. We allow our alarm clocks to buzz at least a dozen times before we decide we have to get out of bed. We then rush around our homes half-awake trying to get ready for our day. In a hurry, we stub our toe on the bedpost, forget to put on deodorant, and don’t pack a lunch because we simply do not have time.

It’s no wonder that so many folks despise the thought of being awake before 9 am!

So it may not surprise you to know that happy individuals tend to actually enjoy their mornings. They appear to thrive on waking up with the sun and look forward to a new day or possibilities. These happy people have humble morning rituals that increase their own sense of well-being and give their day purpose.
