40% of what we do every day isn’t a decision — it’s a habit.
Research from Duke University shows that If we can learn to control a few of our naughtier behaviors, we can change our lives. Easier said than done? According to Charles Duhigg’s, author of “The Power of Habit”, the secret to developing healthier and happier habits is: Do Less.
“You don’t need to overhaul your life. Like any project, scratch off one behavior at a time. In general, people should consider change as a project that takes a little while… It’s worth spending a month to change one behavior permanently. You’re going to be reaping the benefits of that for the next decade.”
Here’s a few tips to help get that ‘project’ started:
The 20 second rule: According to behavior economist, Shawn Achor, “If you can make bad habits 20 seconds harder to begin, you’re far less likely to engage in them.”
Make it harder for temptation to strike by getting your workout gear ready the night before. The night before class, you might have every intention of getting to class. But in the next morning or after work, it’s easy for the interest in getting a good sweat to trickle away with the ‘to do’ list. The sooner you get your tennis shoes on, the less likely you will change your mind. Remember how good you always feel afterward!
Keep healthy snacks easily accessible 3:00pm is a bewitching hour for many. Grabbing a handful of nuts, an apple with peanut butter, or a protein bar is far better fuel than a bag of chips. A combination of protein with a healthy carb (fruit) will help keep your stomach cravings at bay. It takes a little preparation, but it could make an immediate difference in your energy level, your waist line, your life
The instructional captions are really great! It helps remind me what to focus on, REALLY helps. Also, doing the videos doesn’t take up much space. I did it one day in my bedroom with a number of laundry baskets surrounding me and didn’t kick one of them!
My sister, Suzanne Schoenhut, has been raving about Mojo Fitness for over a year. I decided to join her.Now…..I get it!!!
As identical twins (71 years young!), we both check out our Fitbits after class and compare the number of steps and how many minutes “in peak” (HIIT intervals).
After todays’ 55 min session, I was thrilled to see I did 6,391 steps and 20 minutes in peak…that is the most ever I’ve done!I’ve officially cancelled my OrangeTheory membership…I’m sticking with Mojo!!
Mojo online is brilliant! With my busy lifestyle it gives me the chance to jump in and do a workout anytime day or night. I also love the options of a 15 min, 30 minute or 50 minute workout and the “abs or arms”. I run the class on a big screen TV and It really feels like I am in the room with friends. It also leaves me with no excuse not to do it and I feel great.
Thank you for making Mojo Online! I have access to a fun, yet intense workout whenever my schedule permits. I love that there are options such as the 1 hour classes or the 30 minute sessions. And the best part is that I can take Mojo wherever life takes me!
