Maintaining good habits, like a well-balanced diet, a regular exercise routine, and a normal sleep schedule, can help you live a longer, happier, and healthier life. But while we know what to do to improve our health, developing these habits and sticking to them isn’t always easy.
It can be tricky to adapt to a new routine, and it’s often tempting to return to old ways if we don’t see immediate results. Luckily, there are several steps you can take to build a habit while making sure it sticks for a long time. And in today’s video, we will tell you what they are. From starting with small adjustments, reminding yourself why you’re making a change, being patient, rewarding yourself to being accountable and more.

Find your motivation: Habits are far more likely to succeed if they are based on intrinsic (internal) motivation, rather than extrinsic (external) motivation. For example, you want to create a new exercise routine.
Start with small adjustments: Some folks want to do everything in a day which ends up getting them nothing in the end.
Focus on one goal at a time: You may have a laundry list of habits you want to change — eat less junk food, do yoga daily, go to bed early. But taking them on all at the same time may set you up for failure.
Identify all triggers and obstacles: In order to develop a good habit, you need to know all the triggers and obstacles. If you don’t do that, then you are likely to face failure.
Remind yourself why you're making a change: Having motivation is key when trying to change your behavior.
Connect new habits to usual routines: Incorporating the small, attainable habits into your daily life creates a new routine. Making these changes and doing them every day teaches your brain and body a new pattern of behavior.
Make habits time bound rather than outcome bound: It can be tough to stick with a new habit if you feel unmotivated. If you promise yourself you’ll read 20 pages a day, but you keep getting side-tracked and you miss the mark, you’ll feel bad about yourself for being unable to stick with it.
Be patient: Learning to be patient is perhaps the most critical skill of all. You can make incredible progress if you are consistent and patient.
When you slip, get back on track quickly: Top performers make mistakes and get off track just like everyone else. The difference is that they get back on track as quickly as possible.
Reward yourself: Giving yourself a reward after performing the action that you’re trying to automate reinforces the habit loop in your brain, so the habit is more likely to stick.
Be accountable: Declaring your new habit to others is a great way of getting support from people around you.
