Keeping committed in taking care of your health it involves changing attitude or behavior in the way that you deal with the set backs, which of course will happen often especially at first. When faced with setbacks, don’t just quit or resolve in dealing with it in the same way as before.

When you stumble instead of staying down, get up, use that stumbling stone as a stepping stone instead. Learn from the experience and continue to build on it. This will help you to be consistent in doing what is good for your health and eventually you will see the wanted results. As you do this in regular basis you will build mental fortitude.

New paths are not made by how fast you run through them
Rather by how often we walk in them

Set small goals to reach along the way in order to keep you consistent and committed in taking care of your health for the long run.
