How To Create Healthy Habits That Sticks

Do you remember when you were so fired up that you totally devoted yourself to losing 20 pounds, finishing a course, joining 5 am club, etc.? But somehow you can’t get to the finish line. You no longer have that motivation within you when you first started


It’s frustrating right? I feel tΩhat too. I’ve been there but I did not stop until I found ways on how to be consistent and form healthy habits that stick.

As Jim Ryun quotes: “Motivation is what gets you started and habit is what keeps you going.”

Forming healthy habits can be challenging, and you will need to take a few steps in order to achieve them.


Here are the Top Tips on How to Create Healthy Habits that Stick



Lack of inspiration is a major reason why you don't follow through with your goals.

It's important to have desires and goals that get you excited to jump out of bed in the morning. Make sure your goals reflect your core values, and ones you're passionate about.

When your desires are correctly aligned, it is much easier to have a fire in you burning to get through the things that may otherwise seem uninteresting or exhausting. 

Find something meaningful you care about and chase it.

But don't rush toward that big goal. You will feel burned out and eventually give up on your dream. 




You will be more likely to accomplish your goals if you break them down into steps. 

Your motivation will increase once you begin checking off items on your to-do list and see yourself progressing toward your end goal. Create daily, weekly to monthly goals and track your progress. 



Make use of tracking tools to see how your healthy habits are progressing

A habit tracker provides tangible evidence of your efforts: a subtle reminder of your progress. We become more motivated to continue down this path when we see evidence that we are moving forward. 

Having a visual tracker is useful when things are going badly. Often, you forget how far you have already come when you are feeling low. Habit tracker serves as a visual representation of your hard work—a subtle reminder of what you have accomplished. 

Plus, the empty square you see every morning can stimulate you to get started because you don't want to fall behind. 

Regardless of which visual tool you decide to use, be sure to monitor your progress daily.



It is human nature to be habitual. Our brains are wired to pick the path that requires the least effort and provides the most comfort. It tends to put us in routines that don’t require us to use a lot of brainpower for. 

In the case that you've a habit of checking your phone first thing in the morning, skipping breakfast, and thinking negatively about yourself, your brain will fight to keep you in this state even once you start to improve.

It is so important to begin to cultivate healthy habits now so that they will become easier over time.

Try getting out of bed as soon as your alarm goes off every day for a month. By the second and third months, you won’t even have to try anymore, and your brain will adapt.

Apply this idea to all of the habits you want to break, and the ones you want to create. Watch what happens.
