I will wake up early.
I will lose that weight.
I will eat more healthy.
How many times have you started something like this only to realise that you never finish doing it? How many times have you tried to eat more greens only to fall back to having none at all? Or perhaps start exercising more only to stop three weeks into the program?

We live in a busy world where multi-tasking is the norm. This is especially true for today’s parents, who must juggle work, childcare, extracurricular activities, exercise, errands, housework and playtime.

Building healthy routines doesn’t necessarily take extra work, but it does require extra attention.
These 7 habits are really a guide along which you can develop your potential … to fulfill your dreams and to become the best you can be.
