“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an art, but a habit.” - Aristotle
Dear Habit Team,
Would you like to make positive changes in your life?
If so, then join us to learn and practice behavior-changing habits that will impact your life.
Welcome to the Habit Game.
Fen Fitness is organizing and introducing the Habit Game to a select group in our community before
nationwide program launch. Over each two-week period, you will learn and develop skills for one small
habit at a time.
First Habit Game – Eat to 80% full
September 2nd to 15th, 2019
How do you eat?
Do you eat when you are hungry, or when you are anxious or sad?
Do you continue to eat after you are full?
Is that dessert worth the discomfort that comes from feeling stuffed?
Most cultures have sayings that advise about not eating past fullness:
Hara Hachi Bun Me – Japanese
Chi Fen Bao – Chinese
Tie the sack off when it’s 80% full – German
Eating mindfulness – Yogi tradition
My mother was born during World War II and always cooked huge portions so that we did not
experience the food scarcity that she experienced growing up. Me and my three siblings were taught
that not a grain of rice can be left behind. Because of this early conditioning, I equated satisfaction with
over-eating past fullness.
We all approach food differently and find different reasons for justifying our eating habits. In this first Habit Game, you will receive direction and solution to influence the way you approach your eating
Second Habit Game - HAPPY THOUGHTS ONLY
September 16th to Sept 29th, 2019
Over this two-week period, we will explore and share the power of happy thoughts. During this Habit Game you will experience the influence that happy thoughts have toward shaping a positive attitude.
We will practice the daily habit of feeling gratitude, while keeping blameful and negative thoughts at bay. This will help you see and think differently and should be especially comforting during periods of unusual stress and negativity.
Don’t be surprised if you experience improvement in your sleep quantity and quality.
