3 Critical Steps to Forming New Habits

Developing and maintaining healthy habits is crucial for achieving overall well-being and living a fulfilling life.

Good habits, such as coming to RESET, exercising regularly, eating a balanced diet, getting enough sleep, and managing stress, can help prevent chronic diseases, boost energy levels, improve mood, and increase productivity.

We know creating healthy habits requires discipline, consistency, and commitment, but the benefits can be significant and long-lasting. In this fast-paced world, where people are often too busy to prioritize their health, it is essential to recognize the importance of healthy habits and make them a part of our daily routines.

This is something we are extremely passionate about at RESET because our goal is to make YOU the best version of yourself! This is why we developed our 3 critical steps to forming a new habit strategy to help you optimize!

STEP 1: Establish a Game Plan

Did you know 90% of people fail to accomplish a goal because of two main factors - they didn’t properly plan, and they didn’t create the habit? Our goal is to have you win and feel your best; not fail. If you can take the next 5 minutes to establish a plan, you’re well on your way to success!

Questions to ask yourself:

How many hours per week can I dedicate to bettering myself at RESET? Be realistic here. With your current schedule, how many hours can you commit to?

What days and times seem to work best for you? We love a good first thing in the morning to jumpstart your day, though a mid-day reenergize boost might be your thing, or an after-work time to allow your body to decompress from the day. Which sounds more appealing to you? Build your plan around that.

Once you have the days and times that work best, add them to your calendar to better hold yourself accountable.

STEP 2: What’s Your Why

Having a strong and meaningful "why" is crucial for achieving success on your health and wellness journey. Here are some benefits of having a good "why":

Increases motivation: When you have a clear reason why you want to achieve a specific health or wellness goal, it can be a powerful motivator to keep going even when things get tough. A strong "why" can help you stay focused on your goals and remind you why you started in the first place.

Provides direction: A good "why" can help you define your path and set priorities for your health and wellness journey. It can guide your decision-making and help you stay on track with your goals.

Enhances commitment: When you have a meaningful reason why you want to achieve a specific health or wellness goal, you are more likely to commit to it. A strong "why" can provide you with the determination and persistence you need to stick with it, even when it's challenging.

Improves accountability: A good "why" can help you be accountable to yourself and others. By sharing your reasons for pursuing your health and wellness goals with others, you can create a support system that will encourage you to stay committed and focused.

Boosts satisfaction: When you achieve your health and wellness goals, it can be incredibly satisfying and fulfilling. Having a meaningful "why" can enhance that sense of satisfaction by reminding you of the purpose behind your hard work and dedication.

Overall, having a good "why" can be a game-changer on your health and wellness journey. It can help you stay motivated, focused, and committed to achieving your goals, and ultimately lead to a happier and healthier life.

Now that you know the benefits of having a “why” and the days and times you are going, let’s understand your “why”?

How does RESET help you meet your health and wellness goals? What will be the reflection piece you can use on the hard days when you feel unmotivated, that will get you to accomplish your “RESET” time.

BONUS: Write out how you remember feeling the first time you came to RESET. Were you more energized, less bloated, less fatigued, and more relaxed? Reflecting on physical feelings can be a powerful tool for staying motivated on your health and wellness journey. Here are some proven scientific ways that it can help:

Heightens awareness: Reflecting on physical feelings can help you become more aware of your body and its needs. By paying attention to how your body feels during and after exercise, for example, you can better understand what types of activities and movements are most beneficial for you.

Provides feedback: Physical feelings can serve as feedback for your progress. When you reflect on how your body feels after making healthy choices, such as eating a nutritious meal or getting a good night's sleep, you can use that feedback to reinforce positive behaviors and stay motivated.

Increases mindfulness: Reflecting on physical feelings can help you practice mindfulness, which is the act of being present and fully engaged in the current moment. By focusing on your physical sensations during exercise or while eating, for example, you can stay fully engaged in the activity and better appreciate its benefits.

Strengthens motivation: Reflecting on physical feelings can help you stay motivated by reminding you of the positive effects that healthy choices have on your body. When you feel the physical benefits of exercise or healthy eating, it can be a powerful motivator to continue those behaviors and make them a regular part of your routine.

Reflecting on physical feelings can help you stay connected to your body, motivated to make healthy choices, and focused on your health and wellness goals. By becoming more aware of your physical sensations and using them as feedback, you can create a deeper connection with your body and enhance your overall well-being. So go back to that initial feeling and keep that feeling in your mind and every time you come and disconnect reflect on how great you feel! After all, you are dedicating 1 full hour to bettering YOURSELF!

STEP 3: Consistency is Key

The Reset philosophy is no obstacles can get in the way of a true priority. Consistency is essential to achieving success in any area of life, including health and wellness.

Here are some ways we feel consistency can help you overcome obstacles on your health and wellness journey:

Establishes this new habit: Consistency is the key to forming new habits. When you consistently practice healthy behaviors, such as coming to RESET, they become a regular part of your routine. This makes it easier to overcome obstacles and stick to your goals in the face of challenges.

Builds momentum: Consistency builds momentum, which can help you stay motivated and overcome obstacles. When you consistently make progress towards your goals, no matter how small, it can give you a sense of accomplishment and motivate you to keep going. Bonus the modalities at RESET are proven to help hormonally make you feel more confident, focused, driven and attentive.

Increases resilience: Consistency can help you develop resilience and perseverance, which are important qualities for overcoming obstacles. By consistently working towards your goals, you can develop the mindset and skills to overcome challenges and setbacks, rather than giving up or losing motivation.

Improves focus: Consistency can help you stay focused on your goals, even when distractions or obstacles arise. By consistently prioritizing your health and wellness, you can develop the discipline and focus necessary to overcome obstacles and stay on track. We’ve found that when our members make their time here a habit it positively trickles over into all areas of their lives.

Key takeaway: Consistency is key to overcoming obstacles on your health and wellness journey.  

By consistently practicing healthy behaviors, building momentum, increasing resilience, and improving focus, you can overcome challenges and achieve your goals. Remember that progress is not always linear, and setbacks and obstacles are a natural part of the journey but when you pair consistency with proper planning and a strong “why” those obstacles become easier to overcome. Having a plan, knowing your why, and consistency will help you stay on track, stay motivated, and ultimately achieve success in the long run.
