5 Tips to Make New Habits Stick


Whether making a New Year's resolution is your yearly tradition or you want to kick off the year on the right foot, here are the best tips and tricks to help make new routines stick.

Top Five Ways to Build a Habit That Actually Sticks


1. Start Small

It's easy to feel overwhelmed if you take on too much. Instead, break your goals down into increments. For example, if you want to start doing yoga but don't have much flexibility, try going to the studio once a week to start. Or, instead of doing 50 push-ups a day, set a smaller goal of 5 for the first few days and add in more as you feel comfortable.
Remain patient, start simple, and continue to progress.


2. Commit to 30 Days

No matter what your new habit is, from drinking more water to waking up earlier, try to commit to it for 30 days. About a month is all you need to make a new habit feel routine. Make it through this initial conditioning phase, and you'll be on autopilot before you know it.


3. Remind Yourself 'Why'

Why do you want to start this new habit? Remind yourself about the benefits of making a change. Read up on the advantages of a healthy diet or imagine getting a new job after improving your working habits.

Remembering why you want to make the change and how it will better your life helps keep you motivated as you work toward your goal - no matter what it may be.


4. Don't Sweat Defeat

Let go of perfection. Forming a new life pattern takes time. We all have a cheat day or skip a workout once in a while, but it's important to get back on track when you’re ready.

Don't lose motivation if you have an off day (or even an off week).


5. The Buddy System

For some of us, having a friend going on a similar journey can help with motivation and accountability. Having a gym partner could be what you need to ensure you make it to your workout or cutting out junk food with someone who loves it as much as you can help with the transition phase.
