danielle barber explains how you can start and keep up with good habits. :09-:18 whether it's eating healthier, getting more exercise or spending less money, it's difficult to form new habits. "you have to kind of look at your life overall and figure out 'okay, whwh are my goals in life?' and i think the more specific we can be with our goals we can see 'okay, how are my behaviors now helping me get to that goal?'" breaking old habits isn't always easy. certified profile coach, samantha carlson, says if you want to change your bad habit, you have to start small. "if you can have those small victories in between that builds your self- confidence and that makes you believe 'okay, i can go to that next step. once you've achieved that one 'all right, let's go to that next step' versus just going to that end goal and then being discouraged right away and just wanting to quit altogether." when you set a goal, carlson encourages being realistic about the time-line you give

"having your goals in writing is something that's awesome to do just because the more areas you can see it, those visual triggers, it'll really help. if you have a buddy that has a similar goal, having that buddy system really helps keep you accountable." if you don't reach your goal one week, carlson says to accept it and keep moving forward. that was danielle barber reporting. carlson also encourages giving yourself visible reminders to help you break your bad habit and form one. for example, if you always come home after work and sit on the couch, you could try placing shoes on your couch... as a reminder to take a walk to
