I attended a fitness conference last weekend and learned a vast array of great information for living a fit and healthy lifestyle. The most applicable take home piece for myself and clients is-Make one change at a time. When you are newly motivated to try something different, it is tempting to make many changes at once. However, making one change has a success rate of 85% and making two changes at once has a success rate of 15%. So clearly, if long term lifestyle change is the goal, then making one change at a time is most effective. We just have to fight our urges to overhaul everything at once. Challenging, but more effective in the long run.
