  • Find a support system. A strong support system can help you stay motivated and on track. Find a cheerleader, advisor, and accountability partner.
  • Don’t give up. Building a new habit requires time and dedication Don’t get discouraged if you slip up. Don’t let the magnitude of your goal make you feel like you can’t do it. Just focus on taking the next step.
