How to implement Healthy Habits?

No matter where you are in your journey, we all can do better towards our health and self. That is how life works, we are constantly improving and expanding!

Maybe it’s improving your diet, or exercising more often, or adding daily mindfulness and meditation practices. Whatever it is, everything comes down to create and implement a new habit.

If you are human, you probably have struggled in the past to change or add healthy habits, as I have. So, here are some tips that have worked for me to start a new habit easier and more effectively:

Become crystal clear Why you want to do it:

No matter what we are trying to change or add in our life, we need to have a clear reason Why!

Usually, we face a point where our inside voice screams for change. And that is the moment to pick up the phone and listen! When you do, ask yourself, why do you want to change? Why do you want to add this new habit in your life? How does your life will improve by making this change? How will you become a better person by adding this new habit in your life?

It’s important that you get clear answers to these questions. They will be your reminders and motivation to stick to your new habit. So, don’t be afraid and go deep in your answers. Think about your long-term health, think about the love ones around you, think about the impact in every area of your life…

Get an accountability team, partner or coach:

We are social creatures and it’s proven that we stick to our promises much better when we have spoken to others about it. When implementing a new Healthy Habit in your life, make sure you share it with friends and family around you. Let them know how important this change is for you and explain your reasons Why you are doing it.

If you feel that you need extra help to stay on track look for a coach. If you have tried many times unsuccessfully to change a habit, probably you need professional help. A good coach will keep you accountable and provide you with the right tools and steps for you to achieve success.

Use the 2-day rule:

When starting a new habit, for example, to exercise regularly, the 2-day rule means that you won’t be taking 2 days off exercising in a row. At least, you will do that new habit a minimum of every other day. This way you will keep the momentum of the new habit and before you know it, it will feel better to do it than not to.

It is a big commitment! Remember your Why! And because we know that life always gets in the way, you can always plan to have 1 day off your new habit, but not 2 in a row!

Set reminders (obvious and subtle ones):

Obvious reminders are the ones that you can use in your phone or notes that you can leave around your home to “remind you” to do the action needed to implement your new Healthy Habit. Or a partner or friend that can ask you daily how are you doing with your new habit.

More subtle ones are important, especially for your subconscious mind. For example, if you want to have a green smoothie every morning, leave the blender and some ingredients ready on the kitchen counter from the night before. Or if you want to drink more water during the day get a nice drinking bottle and make sure you carry it around everywhere you go. Or if you want to change your diet, start by cleaning all the unhealthy food from your kitchen and fill it with the healthy stuff you want.

Set reminders! If you see it you will do it!

By changing your environment and pre-setting yourself for success by implementing small changes related to your new habit, your mind creates positive associations to your new habit, and therefore you will start creating subconscious pathways for your future behaviors.

These are some tips that have worked for me to implement new Healthy Habits. I have to say that the most powerful one, is the first one. Becoming crystal clear Why you want to do it.

All comes down to your mindset, your character and your commitment to yourself, and to those reasons why you want to change or add a new habit.

Can we have it all? A blog on how to create your dream life

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Featured, Life

Yes! We definitely can. Not many people have done it. It does require a special attitude and character towards life. But it’s possible.

You probably have around some examples of “successful” people, maybe some people are successful in their career and get to enjoy financial abundance, maybe they have a great love relationship and they always seem happy with their other half, maybe you know somebody that has the freedom to travel around the world. But do you know anybody that has it all?

This has been my dream for the last 15 years and the driver to make me dive into all kinds of personal growth materials, coaching techniques, mindset programming tools, health and well-being methods and so on.

I have become obsessed with the fact that I want all in life. I want to have a beautiful family, I want to have the most passionate and romantic love relationship, I want to have a fit and strong body, I want to have freedom of time and space and I want to have the financial abundance to enjoy a high quality of life. I want it all!

So far, I feel that I have succeeded in many of these areas and I feel confident enough to share what has worked for me so that you can do the same.

This is why I have created Daniel Hernandez Lifestyle and this blog. Through my blogs, videos, and newsletters you will find different tools, reflections, and provoking thoughts to inspire you to create YOUR ideal life.

The emphasis in YOUR life! This is not for you to copy my life or my insights. It’s for you to dive deep inside and define what do you want. 

This is why you will find different focus areas in this blog. I’ll be sharing about Healthy Lifestyle tips and tools, how to build your Character and Emotional Intelligence, tips about relationships (love, social and parenting) and how to create your ideal career and financial abundance.

You must start to believe that YOU CAN HAVE IT ALL! Everything starts in our mind and the beliefs we hold on to.

That is why I will be sharing new ways of seeing things for you to bend your current beliefs and start expanding towards new ways of thinking. To a place where you can have and enjoy all the successes that you deserve in every area of your life.

We are here to make the most out of this one life that we get to enjoy. We are here to grow and expand. We are here to live an extraordinary life. And it is only up to us to define what does that means, who do we have to become to get there, have a clear reason why we want it and then take the actions to get there, consistently, day in and day out!

So to begin, take a moment if you can close your eyes for a couple of minutes, and imagine 5 years from now how your life could be. Where are you? With whom you are? What are you doing? How is your body looking? What are you feeling?

You see, our essence is pure love and joy. We are meant to live that way. We are meant to let our light shine and live life happily and joyfully. To do that, we need to start by knowing which life we want to live.
