Habits are subconscious patterns that are among the biggest reasons for our difficulties in maintaining weight-loss and healthy lifestyles, no matter how much we want to change.
Your Weight Matters offers some helpful tips for creating plans for new, healthier habits and changing the bad habits that are holding you back.
Understand Your Triggers – Triggers in our thoughts and in our environment are often responsible for our habits. When you catch yourself in an unwanted behavior, try to identify what it was that triggered it. For example, maybe a stressful thought propelled you into emotional eating, or a bad day made you skip your workout and watch television on the couch instead.
