Building
Healthy Habits

Reset Time!

The whole country is emerging from a year of COVID. It’s an exciting time of potential and opportunity. It’s perhaps the best time ever to hit the reset button and begin living your best life. But it can also be a scary time of change. Again.

It’s a good time to check in with yourself and your loved ones.  The journey of the last year has been difficult for all and extremely difficult for some. Many of us have developed new habits, both good and bad.

Take time to reflect on where you are now and where you’d like to be. Which habits you’d like to continue and grow and which habits you might want to pull back or drop entirely.  It’s time to live your best life! 

What habits did you develop last year?

Check in with yourself:

  • Am I eating more often?
  • What kinds of foods am I eating?
  • Am I drinking alcohol more?
  • Am I exercising? As often?
  • Am I spending quality time with my family?
  • Am I spending too much time online?
  • Am I vaping? More? Around others?

What habits can I develop?

  • Can I start exercising?
  • Can I start reading a book?
  • Can I start a family game night?
  • Can I learn new recipes?
  • Can I take a daily walk?
  • Can I check in on a friend by phone?
