Dr. Kent Bradley, Chief Health and Nutrition Officer, Herbalife Nutrition recommends a “4 Ps” approach of purpose, plan, partner and peers to reach one’s goals for a healthier 2022:
Purpose – It starts with tapping into something important and meaningful. Taking the time to clearly identify the reason why you want to be healthier. Posting that purpose where it can be seen daily, like on your mirror, will be the fuel to stick to that resolution
Plan – A specific plan that focuses on achievable goals is an important tool for measuring and celebrating success. There are great free resources like meal plans and exercise routines to achieve your objectives. For example, many people find that an easy plan to follow is to replace two meals with a meal replacement shake – such as Herbalife Nutrition Formula 1.
Partner – A partner helping you on your way to your goals will increase the likelihood of success. A partner in this journey can increase accountability. Wellness and lifestyle coaches are great partners for achieving goals.
Peers – Surround yourself with a community of individuals on a similar journey or who are cheering for your success. Social networks can be a great resource to provide encouragement and support. Say Yes and make new friends, joining our global community through the Herbalife Nutrition Independent Distributors. Millions of unique people, brought together by a shared purpose – that of having a healthy and balanced lifestyle.
