Three Things You’ll Learn
1) Forming New Habits & Achieving Your Goals
The first thing you need when you decide to form a new habit or set a goal is the willingness to make a change. Then, you need to make sure that you set realistic targets and also avoid the “all or nothing” mentality. These are key factors for not setting yourself up for failure.
Looking at our three guests’ practical advice, Jess’s number one suggestion when working towards your goals is to wake up half an hour earlier every morning as we often underestimate how much we can achieve in the morning. Ty believes in breaking down big goals into smaller ones so they are more attainable. And Calum’s go-to advice is to try and stack healthy habits on one another.

2) Accountability & The Power of Community
Building on your willingness to change, you’ll also need to keep yourself accountable to reach your targets. When it comes to nutrition, Jess’s most practical tip is to meal prep. You don’t necessarily have to prep actual meals, prepping healthy ingredients can already help a lot. Keeping a food diary for tracking how you feel both physically and mentally after certain foods can lead you to maintain a healthy diet.
Having a partner, community or anyone who can check in with you plays a big role in accountability. The key here is to find like-minded people or people who share the same goals. Having a community brings “togetherness”, which can really help you progress on your journey and fuel you with motivation.
