You might leave your registered dietitian's office feeling energized to eat more healthfully. But enthusiasm for healthy changes can wear off quickly. In fact, it takes willpower & motivation to make and maintain changes in your life. But, press on, arm yourself with a few good strategies, and you'll be on your way to maintaining healthy habits for life. 

MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR TIME- Thinking through your options and making a solid realistic plan can go a long way in making the best use of your time. Enlist a dietitian as your ally in the quest for healthier living. A dietitian will get to know your preferences & lifestyle & discuss personalized strategies that work for you. 

ASK FOR ACCOUNTABILITY - Tell a trusted friend or family member about your plans, they may even want to join you! It really helps to have someone to keep you on track. When you book follow-up sessions with a dietitian, they serve as professional accountability partner to check in on your goals, assess barriers & revise strategies as needed. 

TAP INTO TECHNOLOGY - look around & find the right fit for you. Some devices track steps, sleep habits, heart rate and more. Making a habit of tracking your goals with technology can be quick & easy. 

ENLIST COMPETITION -With workplace wellness initiatives on the rise, many companies now offer health-oriented challenges. These can be a fun way to get to know your co-workers better while keeping the office healthy.
