Every time you make a decision, commit to it and follow through on it, you are building character. In return this makes you stronger, happier and calmer because you have a backbone supported by integrity.

Pick one small physical thing that you can do daily to improve your health and actually do it. It could be drinking a glass of water in the morning before you hit the coffee or cutting alcohol during the week. You could try walking in the morning or stretching before bed. It may not seem like much at first, but you are subtly practicing discipline, establishing trust in yourself and increasing your self-esteem.

When you decide to ramp it up with a bigger goal, your self-efficacy will assure you that you are up to the task and you will be more likely to succeed.
