Do habits make us or break us? That’s up to us to decide. Change might be uncomfortable at the beginning but in the long run it can turn your life around, according to the folks at BetterMe Health Coaching, a popular healthy lifestyle app. So keep an eye on the big picture, they say. Rather than trying to change everything about your life at once, try tackling life one habit at a time.
BetterMe Health Coaching has introduced a 365-Day Challenge for sustainable and long-lasting results. While practicing one new habit for 30 days, you can focus on different areas of your well-being in a holistic way. Each month is dedicated to a specific and realistic goal, and provides enough time and space for the biggest impact.
January – Go dry for 30 days. Give your body a break! Quit alcohol for 30 days, and you will improve your sleep quality, boost your energy, and lose weight.
February – 28 days plank and push-ups challenge. Learn how to do the plank and push-ups correctly. You will develop a healthy posture, build core strength, improve body alignment, and boost your metabolism.
March – Inner harmony. This month you will experience all the benefits of meditation. Staying healthy mentally is just as important as being physically strong.
April – Cardio workouts. Boost your level of endurance, and you will be surprised to feel your best and see your body transform in no time.
May – Plant-based month. Veggies are an awesome source of fiber. Try eating less meat and at least 400 grams of vegetables and reap all the possible benefits.
