Week 14: Create Healthy Habits for Life

It’s week 14 of the #8fitChallenge and we are so proud of how far you’ve come. Last week you shared either a song or quote that motivates you. We’re you surprised to find that it actually works?! This week is all about making healthy habits stick. If you missed any of the previous weekly challenges, catch up here:

Find motivation, then make habits stick

Motivation is what gets you started, but habit is what keeps you going. What you do consistently will produce results.

So, how do you create a habit? Here are some ideas:

  • Set a reminder. Use your phone or watch to set a regular alarm to remind you of the habit you want to create.
  • Create routine. Get into a routine of working out in the morning or getting up 30 minutes earlier to make and eat breakfast at home.
  • Reward yourself. Choose healthy rewards (that aren’t food and don’t cost money) to turn to when healthy habits stick like a bath, a facemask, or other act of self-care.

Weekly challenge

Healthy routines often start in the morning. Post a photo or a video showing us your morning routine and tag #8fitChallenge and #8fit in the caption.  

We’ll announce the weekly winner next Monday and see you on Tuesday for a live Tuesday Tips session, then Thursday for our live 8fit workout!
