New year, new habits
We've hit mid Jan, you've settled back into more of a routine, you've packed some healthy salads to take to work (meal prep, check!) and getting to the gym a few extra times a week. All is well on the New Year, New You front -- yeah?
Weather you're nodding in agreement (and quietly happy with yourself), or feeling guilty and behind because you still need to "make plans for the year"; you're probably still very aware that any intentions you set need conscious effort to stay consistent.
What I want to share with you in this post is an important piece of the habit setting puzzle. In order to follow through with your big goals for the year, or even break habits it's important to know how habits work.
