The key to building a long-term, sustainable healthy and vibrant life is by taking small, daily steps towards healthier habits.
Perhaps you’ve already figured out that small steps lead to big progress; that you don’t have to try and change everything at once, but you’re still having trouble sticking to your small steps.
The answer may lie in your environment. It’s difficult to change your snacking habits if your fridge and cupboard are still filled with all the snacks you are trying to replace. The chances of you actually using the treadmill are way lower if it is still being used as a clothes rack.
In the journey toward a healthier lifestyle, your environment plays a pivotal role. Consider your living space as the canvas on which you’ll paint the picture of your wellness. Just as an artist arranges colors and shapes deliberately, you can arrange your surroundings to make healthy habits effortless – or at least easier!
Start with the heart of your home—the kitchen. Conduct a pantry and fridge audit, ridding them of processed, tempting items and replacing them with healthier choices. If getting rid of them isn’t an option (not everyone in your household may be on the same journey as you!) move them out of reach or behind the healthier options. My hubby knows to put the potato chips up on the top shelf that I can’t reach without a lot of effort! This simple act makes it easier to choose nutritious options more often.
Extend this transformation to other areas. Create a designated workout space—whether it’s a corner with a yoga mat or a home gym. Arrange it thoughtfully to encourage regular movement. Even your bedroom can support your wellness journey. Optimize your sleep environment by keeping it cool, dark, and free of electronic devices.
Beyond physical spaces, consider your digital environment. Curate your social media feeds to inspire, motivate, and educate. Unfollow accounts that promote unhealthy habits and fill your online world with positive influences.
By consciously shaping your environment, you set the stage for habit change.
