"I should."

You have probably uttered these two words to address unhealthy habits like: "I should work out more," "I should eat less sugar," "I should eat better..."

"I should" is a common saying that comes before an excuse. If you want to adopt a healthier habit, you can only break it if you truly want to make the change for yourself and no one else. Your current behavior works for you, and until you actually believe that it's not working for you anymore can you effectively create a different lifestyle.

Here are four ways to implement change, once you've taken the step beyond "I should" and decided "I will."



Create Small Goals: "I want to eat healthier food."

Just keep in mind that it's difficult to transform your eating and drinking habits 100 percent from the get-go. An effective way to start achieving your goal is to plan to home cook two healthy meals a week or to cut out gourmet, sugary coffee drinks. Once these changes become your norm, then introduce another one.
