Look for Patterns

By February 18, 2019 Nutrition

If you have some food behaviors that you’d like to change, start looking for some patterns. After all, any type of behavior repeated is a habit – good or bad.

Get yourself a journal and start taking note of trends. Is it related to a particular time, place, situation or person? Start with just building this awareness.

When you’re ready, look for ways you can start making some small changes and break the chain. For example, if you notice that you always reach for a candy bar or ten after a family visit, make a note and a new plan for next timeā€¦ before the in-laws come knocking.

Sometimes just being aware and being able to make very small changes can have big effects.
