Know that it is going to get easier. When you first attempt to make a behavior change, it takes a lot of effort. You need to overcome your auto-pilot—you know, that tendency to do something a certain way without thinking about it. It takes practice, sometimes lots and lots of practice. But, the good news is that over time your efforts can actually change the neuro-pathways in your brain—making the desired behavior the new auto-pilot. You won’t even need to think about it, or at least not as much. Before you head to bed, you’ll pull out the small containers and make your lunch and snacks for the next day. You’ll take your vitamins right before you brush your teeth. And so on with each small behavior as they all add up to a healthier you.
