Congratulations, you’ve made it to week 4! By now you should be feeling pretty good about all the new healthy habits you’ve incorporated into your daily life. You’re healthy habits for week 4 are below, but just because this is the last week doesn’t mean you should stop. Keep going and finding new ways to incorporate healthy habits into your life.
Healthy Habits for week 4
Day 22 – Set some goals for next month.
Now is the perfect time to start planning your goals for next month. Be sure to put them in writing and make them SMART (specific, measurable, action-oriented, realistic, and time specific).
Day 23 – Get social.
Studies have shown that you’re more likely to work out if you work out with a friend. So set a weekly date with a friend to go on a hike, bike ride, swim etc. Make it fun!
Day 24 – Deep clean your house.
Did you know that heavy house cleaning burns calories? A 150 pound person can burn almost 300 calories in an hour just by doing heavy housework! So, get cleaning and then find out how much you’ve burned here.
Day 25 – Take a walk after dinner.
Making it a habit to go on a walk after dinner each day not only helps burn calories, it also helps clear the mind at the end of the day. Take along your significant other and get some bonding time in at the same time.
Day 26 – Prep your meals the day/week before.
If you’ve got your meals already prepared you’ll be less likely to stray from your plan and eat unhealthy choices. Need some help with meal prep? See this post we did on how to meal prep like a fitness model.
Day 27 – Share your goals.
Studies have shown that people who make their goals public are more likely to stay on track. So shout your goals from the rooftops! Or maybe just tell some supportive friends so your neighbors don’t yell back at you to be quiet.
Day 28 – Treat yourself.
You’ve made it through 4 weeks of new healthy habits and that deserves a reward. Just make sure that reward doesn’t come in the form of food. Instead, reward yourself with a night out at the movies, a pedicure, or even a massage. You deserve it!
