You snack late at night. Do you choose your snack based on taste? Or based on health benefit? You probably choose based on taste and odds are, what you’re choosing to snack on is leading you towards an unhealthy life.
Be completely open and honest with yourself and picture yourself in 10 years… Picture what kind of person you will be and look like… Look at your eating habits you have right now and use them to picture what your body will look and feel like… If what you saw isn’t want you want, it is well within your power to change it. Choosing healthy late night snacks is just a part of a bigger whole, but a necessary part. By changing one habit at a time you can create the future you desire for yourself. The power of creation is within all of us.
How- To Healthy Late Night Snack
I want to show you a great method of thinking about your late night snacking habits, and how to change them into habits supportive of your health and fitness goals. The health results you produce will be the sum total of your nutrition and exercise habits.
Nutrition Habits + Exercise Habits = Overall Health and Wellness
The How-To Guide:
1. Acceptance – You must accept fully what you are at this moment. If you are overweight you must accept it. If you perceive anything as negative you must first accept it before you can change it.
2. Goals – A goal is a definite aim to which all your actions are directed. You can create change in your life much more effectively with a specific goal than without one. Figure out what exactly it is you want. How do you want your body to look? How do you want your body to feel? The more specific your goal the better, visualize how you want to look and feel and put that into words on paper. Now hang that paper up in multiple places, anywhere where you’ll see it throughout your day. This will keep your goal constantly swirling in your mind allowing your decisions to come from a state of health and wellness.
3. Habits – Now you should sit down and think about your eating habits. Be honest with yourself and figure out if your current habits are leading you to where you want your health to be. Write down any habits you know are leading you towards unhealthiness. The idea is then to uproot them from your life and replace them with habits supportive of your goals.
4. Plan – Now you need to plan. Planning is very effective. Plan what snack you’ll have, at what time, and how much of it. If you ensure you plan healthy late night snacks, you ensure a healthier you. Prepare your snacks ahead of time so you never use the laziness excuse to indulge in something unsupportive of your goals. Set aside a space in your pantry and fridge for healthy late night snacks. If you keep it stocked with portioned, healthy snacks you’ll maintain a new supportive habit.
5. Execute – This is the part where most people fail. You can have the best intentions and the perfect plan but if you don’t follow through no positive change will occur. Keep your goal in mind and stay in a motivated mindset. Do whatever it takes for your to stay motivated to stick to a healthier lifestyle. Print out pictures of whose health you’d like to emulate and stay focused on picturing yourself with that level of health. This is very effective.
This is the most important step. Ultimately your success depends on this. Develop the willpower to stick it out. It only takes 21 days to form a new habit and the great thing about this, is a good habit is just as hard to break as a bad habit. Tough it out for 21 days and you’ll be very happy with your results, I promise.
Realize the power you have within you. The power to create your life however you want. The power to experience whatever you want to experience. If you want to experience fantastic health and wellness you can. It just takes discipline and patience. Deep down you know what an unhealthy habit is, and deeper down you know what unhealthy habits currently inhibit your life… Uproot them. Replace them with healthy habits. Maintain your new healthy habits. Stay positive. Stay patient. And everything will happen just as your mind pictured it. You’ll be as healthy and well as you want to be.
I help people understand how they’re current nutrition habits correlate to their current results. I aim to debunk the myth that losing weight and becoming healthier is an instant process. It takes hard work and commitment, but the power to lose weight and become more well is within all of us.
