Kaizen is a Japanese word meaning continuous improvement. We can take thiis to any aspect of our lives, because it seems there’s always something that could benefit from continuous improvement.
What are your eating habits?
Let’s look at eating habits. Say you’re pretty good in your choices but find you’re always going for the bag of chips or the box of cookies around 9 o’clock at night.
What happens to your weight goals? All that good eating during the day is undone. But not really. The good eating all day is your foundation, so all is not lost.
Practicing Kaizen, or continuous improvement, can be the tool that helps you cut back on those 9 pm trips to the kitchen. Maybe you’ll decide to have one small bowl of chips, or 2 cookies, not 3. Continuous improvement! Be roud of yourself!
Why Kaizen Works
No More Limiting Thoughts
When you stop thinking “ I should eat better” and instead say “Today I will eat one extra vegetable” and you do it, that’s Kaizen.
