If you’re like most people, as you approach a 30-Day Health Challenge, you’re making a mental list of all of the amazing changes you want to make to your lifestyle. Although making grand statements to improve your eating habits is well intentioned, many people “fall off the bandwagon” over time. Still, research does show that making resolutions to improve yourself is a useful activity. People who explicitly make resolutions are ten times more likely to attain their goals than people who don’t.

So what’s the key to keeping a resolution? Those who are most successful make their goals SIMPLE, SPECIFIC, and WITHIN REACH. Small, reasonable changes are better correlated with success than huge, sweeping statements such as “I’m cutting out all sweets” or “I want to lose 15 pounds”.
If you’re serious about improving your eating habits for the long run, consider these easy, step-by-step 30-day eat-healthier resolutions. Below is a SIMPLE, SPECIFIC, and ATTAINABLE goal check-list that challenges you to adopt one “healthy eating” behaviour each day so that you remain on-track for all 30 days of the challenge!
Wishing you health, happiness, and most importantly, SUCCESS with your health journey,
