  2. 2. Develop a Habit of Intention How do you treat your new car, house or spouse? With intention and focus. Keep your eye on the prize. Your health is worth it.
  3. 3. Why are my pants too tight? You’ve lost control of your health. Use your clothing, your scale or your blood pressure. Pick one and measure weekly if possible. Develop a Habit of Measuring
  4. 4. Don’t just proclaim your desire to be healthy or lose weight. Dig deeper. What will happen if you don’t develop a health habit? What will you lose (time with kids, activities, etc.)? Make it personal. Know your Why. Develop The Habit of Why
  5. 5. Develop The Habit of Sleep Eight hours of sleep provides the rest and recovery your body needs, burning more fat and increasing your energy. Turn off electrical devices one hour prior, read, snuggle or take a bath. Make the room as dark as possible. Like a cave.
