Don’t you just envy the people that can integrate all the healthy habits into their lives without a hitch? I would love to drink the same water as these naturally healthy people. Or maybe, they’re all in on some secret “lucky” pill that makes them uber fit. Whatever the case, it always feels like an uphill battle for the average Joe to implement a new habit into their routine. For most of us, it can take weeks, even months to adopt a new routine. In fact, a study that was published in the European Journal of Social Psychology reports that on average, it takes 66 days to fully develop a new behavior.
Sadly, there is no supplement for luck, and some of us just aren’t graced with the naturally healthy gene, but that doesn’t mean there is no hope for us. As mentioned, new habits take time and discipline, but that hard work will pay off and can lead to a healthier, longer life.
Make your new habit forming transition a little easier with the aid of supplements. Whether you are looking to eat a little healthier, or just have an overall healthier lifestyle, supplements play an important role in both of these habits. As humans in this day and age we typically fail at eating nutritiously. We have diets that lack in many essential vitamins and minerals which in turn, relates to the development of health problems. This is why supplementation is crucial for our health.
Lucky for us, the success rate of adding a supplement to your regimen is very high, the hardest part is remembering to take it! Starting off with this small change can garner gradual positive changes over time. When it comes to being healthy, there really is no luck involved. Those “naturally healthy” individuals had to start somewhere, and may have adopted the healthy habits early on. Chances are, they take supplements as well. So don’t try to turn everything around over night, you will only become disappointed and frustrated. Start small and stick with it so you have room to continue to grow your healthy habits. Try taking some supplements, incorporating more vegetables in your meals, and/or integrating longer walks into your weekly schedule. The journey to a healthier, well-balanced life is attainable for all of us, lucky or not.
