Most of us have routines. Every day we wake up, brush our teeth, get ready for work, drive to work, I could keep on going but you get the picture. We don't even think about many of these activities because they are so ingrained in our routines and habits. Why not add a shot of health to that routine?!
At Fitness Inspired we have identified some common activities that can act as a trigger to a healthy behavior. Check out the list below for some healthy combos that you can add to your day to help you live a healthier life without any extra effort once the habit and trigger are successfully paired!
Here's my challenge for you, pick ONE from this list you think seems enjoyable and you would like to do more of. For example, I would like to stretch more so I am making a commitment that I will NOT make a cup of coffee for myself without stretching. Turning on the Keurig is my trigger, hitting "brew" is my trigger to stretch.
These are just some healthy triggers that we are using in our everyday lives! We would love to add more to our repertoire so comment below and share with us your ideas of healthy triggers(:
Also, it is so important you are committed that EVERY time you do the trigger you MUST do the healthy behavior you are practicing, so you can experience the benefits of the behavior turning into a habit! There are so many days that my little ones are tugging or crying for me, but I include them in my process of my coffee/stretching habit pairing. You can do this too!
