Hey everyone, Simon from Body Development Centre here, back with another tip video! Today’s going to be nice and quick, as we’re just having a quick chat about behaviour cues.

Behaviour cues are things you put into place to trigger your memory that something needs doing. For instance, you might put your gym bag next to the front door, so it reminds you when you walk in from work that you’re going to the gym afterwards. Multiple cues work even better, so consider all the triggers you could put into place.

Also, keep in mind that cues can lead you to bad behaviours as well as good. For instance, having the biscuit tin on the counter and the fruit in the fridge will encourage you to choose biscuits over fruit, so have a look around and decide what negative cues could be removed.

Of course, there are lots of reasons you may struggle to get a new behaviour into place, so to help I’ve uploaded an article today on some common barriers that stop new habits being formed. You can find the link in the description. 

I hope that’s been useful, and if it has please do give me a like and a share, as it really helps with my exposure. 

If you have any questions then do feel free to drop me a line, and of course if you’d like to work with me I am available for one to one personal training in Leicester or online fitness sessions. Links are in the description. 

If you’d like to access my handy and free meal planner, then do check out the Body Vision app, which is available on Apple and Android devices. Links are again, in the description again.

But until next time, take care, and have a great day!
