The little things matter...

What do you do everyday?
Think about it a minute...
Have you incorporated habits or rituals in your life you do without thinking and without fail?
The people I work with who achieve lasting results are the ones who have designed and established life-long habits for the body and life they want.
There are also those who have not achieved lasting results, and this is one of the saddest things to me, so I wanted to do a video about it.
There are 3 main reasons why habits fail to stick when we try to adopt a new healthy behavior.
