EH005: Applying The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People To Your Health

Listen to this week’s episode of the Eternal Health Podcast with Laura:

Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People (his best-selling book) relates really well to how we approach our health. In this episode I show you how to apply these 7 principles to help you reach your health and weight loss goals, be more disciplined with your diet and enjoy it – feeling truly satisfied with your body and results.

If you don’t know, or to jog your memory, the 7 habits of highly effective people from the book, are:

  1. Be proactive
  2. Begin with the end in mind
  3. Put first things first
  4. Think win-win
  5. Seek first to understand, then to be understood
  6. Synergise
  7. Sharpen the saw

What you’ll learn in this episode:

  • How to make sure you don’t relegate the important and non-urgent healthy habits to the non-important and urgent things that take your attention every day.
  • Why and how your diet must be both healthy AND enjoyable.
  • Why we need to ‘sharpen the saw’ when it comes to your diet and health.
