Find all 4 weeks of Fitbit Healthy Habits

Over the past four weeks, we’ve been asking you to make small changes every day in order to build up healthy habits over time. We don’t have any new Fitbit Healthy Habits challenges for you, but we hope that some of the small changes you’ve been making lead you to continue living a healthier life.

If you missed any weeks – or want to start the whole thing over – you can find all four of the checklists here. Print them out or save them to your phone or computer to keep things going! Or pick and choose the habits you most want to work on and create your own checklists. You can also find the individual four weeks here:

The key to creating sustainable habits is to not take on too much at once, so by breaking things down into small, healthy decisions you can make every day, you’ll be working towards a healthier lifestyle over time.

Which healthy habits will you be keeping up in the months to come? Let us know in the comments.

Fitbit Healthy Habits: Week 4

| Leave a comment

Creating a healthy lifestyle is always worth it, but never easy. It can be tempting to try and tackle every unhealthy thing in your life all at once. But studies have shown that our willpower is finite, so trying to change too many of your habits at once will at the very least make you exhausted, and at most cause you to burn out on staying healthy earlier. So we’re challenging each and every reader with bite-sized daily tips in the Fitbit #HealthyHabits challenge!

Fitbit Healthy Habits: Week 4

We’re down to the fourth and final week of our Fitbit #HealthyHabits challenge, and this week we’re all about fitness. You can check out our previous weeks by going to Week 1: Stress, Week 2: Nutrition, or Week 3: Sleep. You can do the challenges in any order you like, and next week we’ll share all four you can print out at once.

Create healthy habits this month

Creating a healthy lifestyle is always worth it, but never easy. Those first few months of getting up early to hit the gym or having to talk yourself up to putting your running shoes on can be a battle of willpower you don’t always win. But after awhile, what was once something you had to force yourself to do becomes second-nature. That’s when you know it has finally become a habit.

When it comes to developing a healthy lifestyle, it can be tempting to try and try and tackle every every unhealthy thing in your life all at once. But studies have shown that our willpower is finite, so trying to change too many of your habits at once will at the very least make you exhausted, and at most cause you to burn out on staying healthy earlier.

“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” —Leonardo DaVinci

Vortex begone, spring has sprung! But the remnants of winter’s hoarding and hibernation may have accumulated beyond your waistline—in sneaky crevices around your house, closet, computer, and email inbox. As many will surely be jumping on the juicing bandwagon to get beach-ready (kale on kale, anyone?), now is a great time to clear any winter clutter that accumulated over the last few months.

By definition, clutter is, “A collection of things lying about in an untidy mass,” or, “Things lying in heaps or confusion,” originally derived from the word “litter.” And who wants litter clogging up their life?

(Mood) Death by 1,000 Cuts

Just as your Fitbit helps track your physical activity, this week’s challenge is to improve your mental fitness at the same time.

Reducing unnecessary stress from your mind, body, physical environment and schedule will free you up for more fun activities that benefit your overall mood, health and wellness. It will be a heck-of-a-lot easier to hit your daily 10,000 steps milestone if you don’t have to dig out from relentless clutter piles every day!

If you’re anything like me, by no means is your clutter so bad that you can’t see the floor — it’s more like little nagging piles that grow so subtly you hardly notice they’re there. That stack of papers on your desk, the unattended to pile of clothes to be properly put away, and that back corner of your refrigerator with food you’ll probably never touch.

Not everyone is ready for a full-on Spring Clean — instead, warm-up with this 7-day De-Clutter Cleanse. Your assignment, should you choose to accept it: remove or streamline one clutter source each day.

Follow this daily regimen as your guide, or for the bravest among you: rip the band-aid off and dedicate an entire day to overhauling your physical, digital and mental environments.
