Thinking about change, planning for change, and making your change happen all take work. Keeping a change going can be just as hard. It takes time to make it your new "normal." And you can expect to have a few tough times.
Here are some things you can do to help make a change part of your new lifestyle.
It's good to keep asking yourself:
If you do slip or go back to your old ways, don't get mad at yourself. You can bounce back. Nearly everyone who succeeds with change has some slips along the way. It's normal.
Remember, things won't always be perfect. But there's a big difference between slipping up and giving up.
