Week 1: Build Healthy Habits

Happy New Year! We are fortunate to say those words again. And we have all heard the slogan “New Year. New You.” And that’s right, 2019 shouldn’t be any different when it comes to setting new goals and finding ways to engage in healthier habits throughout the New Year.

The Small Changes for Health Program helps you to meet your goals one day at a time. One of the goals of the program is helping you to live your best healthy-lifestyle today! Unapologetically! Maybe you are wanting to exercise more, eat healthier, improve your finances, or decrease stress. There is a tool that can help you build healthy habits in 2019. This tool is your smart phone.

Your smart phone comes with many features that can help you stay on track with your 2019 Small Changes goals. It has apps that can help you track your fitness, diet, and finances, just to name a few. To learn more about this amazing tool, read AARP’s article, “How Your Smart Phone May Help You Keep Your Resolutions”. Research says, that doing something for 21 days straight will aid you in forming a new habit. Having the motivation to live healthier gets you started. Habit keeps you going.
