How Integrity Can Help You Make Healthy Decisions

Making healthy decisions can be challenging, but it becomes easier with integrity. Find out how you can make the right choices for your health and happiness.

Have you ever broken a promise to yourself and let yourself down?

It’s unfortunately SO COMMON to neglect our own self-care needs and break promises we make to ourselves. But, each time we break a promise to ourselves, we send a message that we aren’t important.

Essentially, we’re filling our mind with negativity that restricts us from reaching our goals.

Learning how to keep promises to ourselves has huge value. We start to trust ourselves and have faith in our ability to deliver. Here’s how!

What is integrity?

Integrity is something many of us hold near and dear to our hearts and strive to uphold. It’s pretty darn important in life, especially when it comes to success.

  • Integrity is a commitment to something.
  • It’s following through with what you say you are going to do, when you say you are going to do it.
  • It’s being honest, keeping your promises and taking pride in your words and actions.

Start by taking a look in the mirror and evaluating your own integrity.

Does this sound at all familiar?

“On Monday, things are going to be different. I’m going to exercise consistently and eat healthy. I’m going to make changes to my lifestyle and stick to them.”

Monday rolls around, the kids are running around the kitchen with their pants on their heads and now you’re behind and don’t have time to make a healthy breakfast. You had great intentions but you default to stopping at the nearest fast food drive thru, promising yourself things will be different next week.

When this scenario plays out, you’re breaking a promise and telling yourself that your words can’t be trusted.

Simply said, you’re not upholding your integrity to yourself.

It's all about making promises YOU CAN keep!

What’s more important than setting a lofty goal that’s far off into the future? Making a small promise you can KEEP!

Learning how to uphold integrity when trying to live healthy might be one of the MOST important skills any of us can master.

Each time you honor your words, you take control of your future and respect yourself that much more.

Let’s rewrite the earlier scenario to make it more specific and achievable.

Your original goal:
  • “On Monday, things are going to be different. I’m going to exercise consistently and eat healthy. I’m going to make changes to my lifestyle and stick to them.”
Becomes… (much more precise)
  • “This week, things are going to be different. I’m going to exercise for 15 minutes on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I’m also going to prep and pack my breakfast and lunch each night before I go to bed so I will successfully make healthier choices the next day.”

Can you see how being more specific will set you up for greater success?

Making small promises and keeping them is a great way to build integrity and confidence.

Being truthful and practical with ourselves is crucial when it comes to making promises. We should always aim to make small promises that we are certain we can keep. That way, we can build our credibility and self-confidence.

Take Action

  1. Set ONE specific and realistic goal for the upcoming week.
  2. Every Sunday, evaluate and set another. It doesn’t even have to change from the previous week’s goal, just keep it specific and realistic.

Let's continue to move forward and make positive, healthy changes in our lives—together!
