How to Break Bad Habits

Transform your health with the help of a Results Coach

Posted by: Team Tony

Have you ever looked at yourself in the mirror and felt disappointed?

Like many of us, you may be wondering – how do I break bad habits? You may have a clear vision of what you want your body to look like, and how you want to feel day-to-day, but there’s something holding you back. Whether it’s overeating or choosing to sit around and watch television instead of getting to the gym, your greatest roadblock on your journey to get fit is oftentimes yourself.

A trained Results Coach can help you when it comes to changing bad habits to good ones. By working with a professional, you’ll learn how to transform your body and your mental state, discover how to actively manage your health and your mind and finally be able to break bad habits and get the positive results you’re after. If you’re looking to drastically change your body or simply in need of some support to reach the next level, a Results Coach can help you get the results you want. Here are three ways that a Results Coach will enable you to break your bad habits.

Coaching Tip #1: Take ownership and stop bad habits

Most of us want to discover how to break bad habits; in fact, less than 3% of Americans live a healthy lifestyle, and an average American diet consists of nearly 50% of processed foods, which severely damage our bodies. This not only makes you feel more sluggish and gain weight in the short term, but this type of lifestyle can negatively affect your health as you age.

You, too, might have adopted poor eating habits, or maybe you appear relatively healthy but still feel terrible on the inside from not taking care of yourself. The fact is, many of us are not maximizing our health. We’ve fallen into what feels easy – not exercising, falling back on bad eating habits, etc. To stop the cycle of bad habits, a Results Coach will tell you that you need to take ownership of what you’re doing today. Are you eating huge meals late at night? Are you skipping workouts to indulge at happy hour with your coworkers? Your health is a direct result of your behavior, so your first step to success is simply recognizing and owning the bad habits you’ve gotten into.

Coaching Tip #2: Reassess your beliefs 

Taking control of your health can be challenging, but if you’re able to reclaim your mental and physical state, you’ll feel more vitality than you’ve ever felt in your life. Breaking bad habits on your own can be daunting, but a Results Coach will encourage you every step of the way, providing support and essential strategies to maintain your results. Your coach will ask you to examine your behavior and really think about your health goals. Do you want to stop emotionally eating? Do you want to be more present and involved during your workouts? Are you trying to keep stress and sickness at bay by adopting a healthier lifestyle? Before you can change physically, you need to assess your mental state.

Your physical health is a direct reflection of how you feel internally. What caused you to start choosing potato chips over apples? You’ll examine the culmination of choices you’ve been making, and your coach will ask you to think about the meaning behind these choices. Once you’ve identified the cause of your unhealthy habits, it’s time to work on changing your story – break out of your comfort zone and change your story, because when you change your story, you change your life.

Coaching Tip #3: Make a massive change 

Transformation doesn’t happen overnight. By learning how to break bad habits in regards to your health, you’ll not only change your body, but your entire existence. You’ll experience more mental clarity and emotional stability. Major change comes from working alongside a professional coach who knows how to create plans you can follow through on. By creating a personalized step-by-step guide to help you reach your health goals, you’ll create a sustainable way to live a healthier life.

After reconditioning your mindset and helping to change your mental state, you’ll finally get the emotional freedom you deserve. In reaching your health goals alongside a coach, you’ll learn how to stop obsessing over food, stop engaging in negative self-talk and stop listening to all the “I cant’s” you previously told yourself about health. Plus, you’ll develop the physical health your body craves. After working with a Results Coach, you’ll adopt a new physical identity, one that focuses on health, self-love and empowerment. Throw away the disempowering labels you’ve been using to discuss your body and start embracing the new, fit you.
