Avoid temptations

If you always stop for a donut on your way to work, try a different route. Keep fatty foods, cigarettes, alcohol and other tempting items out of your home.

Replace unhealthy behaviors with healthy behaviors

Exercise, practice a favorite hobby or spend time with family.


Prepare mentally

If you can’t avoid tempting situations, prepare in advance. Plan how to handle temptations and mentally practice what you plan.

Enlist support

Ask friends, family and co-workers to support your efforts to change.

Reward yourself for small steps

Give yourself a healthy treat when you’ve reached a small goal or milestone.
