One of the most FAQs when it comes to living a healthy lifestyle is, “How to stay the course?” Everyone is searching for the secret to live healthier.
But the crazy thing is, the focus is the shortcut, not the consistency.

The one thing that all of us get hung up on when it comes to living a healthy lifestyle is, more or less, “How fast can I get there?”.
Yet that’s where the failure begins. There is no secret. I’m sorry to burst your bubble. The ultimate secret is consistency.
It’s not about hacks or shortcuts. It’s not about if HIIT training or cardio is better. It’s not about eating more kale and less sugar.
It’s how to stay the course.
And staying the course is derived from consistency.
It’s all about DAY ONE!
Remember yesterday’s episode, “One Day or Day One”?
You get to decide how you want to live your life. You are not being held to the fire to make the changes. Now some of us need that fire hangin’ to create some urgency in changing our “healthy” habits.
So today, how would you feel if you had more energy?
What would you do if you felt better?
One day or day one. You decide.
Instead of complicating your health decisions, make the complex simple and stay the course.
The K.I.S.S. ~ Make the complex simple!
You don’t need to bombard your calendar and counters with notes on everything you are doing for your health. However, there might be a few exceptions to that.
But the tendency is to overwhelm our mind and to underwhelm the goal.
Make the complex simple!
- How do you really want to live? Start there with your intentions for healthy living.
- What are you doing well now? This is your immediate pat on the back. You probably are doing more things good than what you think.
- Where do you want to be in a week? Notice I didn’t ask you to layout your whole life’s plan for healthy living. It’s one week from now.
I catch myself jumping ahead of the game which causes me not only to over think but to under plan, partly because I’m so busy!
So make the complex simple.
Write a few reminders around the house to keep you on track. Then next week, come back here and listen again. Make a few tweaks, and go for the next week’s goal.
Simplicity is your best friend.
I think of the “EASY” button with Staples. If something is easy, you have a greater chance in completing the task or the follow through.
“Make the complex simple!”
