What’s Your Healthiest Habit?


Are you starting the New Year off right? I know that New Years Day is a big day for promises and commitments, but I thought I’d do it differently this year. Instead of looking at what could be good in your life, I’d like to look at what’s already good. Even if you don’t think you have any healthy habits, you may be surprised what your strong point is. And if you’re already quite healthy, this quiz will let you know where you really shine. Curious? Take my latest quiz: What’s Your Healthiest Habit?

I feel like it’s very easy for me to get hyper about New Year’s resolutions and try to uproot my whole life. In reality, like everyone, I have some things I’m doing right and some things I could improve upon. If I try to figure out how to expand what I’m doing right, it’s a lot easier for me than making a drastic change. For example, if something healthy I’m doing is walking every day, maybe I’ll lengthen that a bit instead of joining a gym that I’ll never go to anyway.

I’m a big believer in small health changes that are easy to work into my life. Some of my already healthy habits I’m trying to work on are yoga (exercise and stress reduction), strengthening personal ties (this is good for you, really!), eating fresh foods from my garden, and getting enough sleep. It sounds like a long list, but since I’m doing these things anyway, I can just focus on small improvements.

Comment below and tell me what you got on What’s Your Healthiest Habit?Β AndΒ let me know what you think your healthiest habit is. Also, do you have any resolutions for 2012? My resolution is to not make any resolutions πŸ˜‰ I’m done with all that resolution mess for a while.

What do you think?

    Your Healthiest Habit is Practicing Moderation

    You don’t think that anything can kill you in small amounts. You believe it’s all about balance.
    You are willing to engage in unhealthy habits occasionally. After all, they are a lot of fun!

    Some may criticize your moderate approach, but it’s very sustainable.
    You’re into being healthy for the long haul, and you know that extremes only lead to trouble.

    I’d say abstinence is my healthiest habit.

    I believe in balance, but there’s just some things that I won’t dabble in.

    It seems everyone gains 5 pounds over the holidays, so I choose to do it with a bang! πŸ™‚

    The biggest problem with getting healthy is that people jump into it and end up quitting shortly after. Moderation is a much better approach in my opinion. Sustainable, indeed.

      In my opinion, moderation is the only way to go. I can’t do change any other way, as difficult as moderation might be πŸ™‚
