FVY 34: How to Build Habits with Jonathan Chant

When it comes to living a fit and healthy life, you cannot rely on willpower.  Willpower is a limited resource; it usually lasts til about 8 in the morning, and then slowly wanes with each decisions you need to make, and each emotionally charged moment in your day.  

Decisions such as “should I workout?” or “what should I make for dinner” can take away from your willpower… and if you’re making them after a stressful day at work, or when you feel emotionally drained, odds that you’ll choose the healthier option are not in your favour. 

There’s a better way: and that’s to build habits. 

By guest is Jonathan Chant.  Jonathan is a Registered Kinesiologist and owns Fitness For Freedom, a company that specializes in making exercise convenient by going to people’s homes to coach and teach them how to exercise and live in a healthier way. In his last 10 years of being a coach he has realized that most people know enough about fitness but nothing about changing their habits in a sustainable way. So his company specializes in working with people to not only to deliver them great fitness programming but also nudge them to make healthier choices the other 166 hours of the week. 

In this episode of the Fit and Vibrant You Podcast, we talk all about building habits.  How to do it, where to start, and how to keep them up. 

I’ve also prepared a building habits worksheet for you.  It breaks down the steps from choosing a habit, creating an action plan, and then staying accountable to your plan.  Click on the bright red button below to get it delivered straight to your inbox!
