This is how you get started with a new habit

It is definitely worth investing time and energy on your personal health. We promise that you won't regret it even if it feels tough sometimes. It's comforting to know that the threshold you need to conquer to get out and train will be lower and lower after each time. 

Don't postpone your health improvements, blame others or something else. Start with small steps. It's always better to do something small than to not do anything at all, but remember the more energy you put in the greater the reward afterwards, no matter what your goals are. Everyone who does something gets a result!

If you want to break a bad habit and start a positive one it's crucial that what you want to do is important to you. Make sure you have a clear WHY you want to make this change. If the goal doesn't seem important, you will not be willing to invest the time and energy needed. When you have formulated your goal, it will be much easier to take control over the situation and be responsible for working towards and reaching the goal of a new habit. But remember, if you hit a set-back and need to start again, stay focused and keep fighting until you have a new routine. Once you have reached this point you will no longer need to debate with yourself, but instead act instinctively in the situation.


Remember! Don't wait for tomorrow. Small changes will have a huge positive effect. The time you have during this Challenge is perfect to use and create some new and healthy habits.

Our tips to stay motivated:

  • Allow yourself to set goals that you can reach and savor the sweet taste of victory when you reach them.

  • If you like to share your success - do it! Social media is great for sharing your journey with friends. 

  • Reward yourself when you reach a goal. Maybe a pair of new trainers, going to the cinema or treating a friend who motivates you to dinner.
