Bullet Points | How to Make a Habit
Play • 11 min

There has been a lot of chat in DMs and on email about habits in the last few weeks, so I thought it’d be a good idea to take a look at the ways in which you can feel out whether a habit is right for you.


We’ve all had to adjust this year, with varying degrees of restrictions and lockdowns but that doesn’t mean it’s impossible to weave new and helpful habits into our new normal.


In this episode I share the six strategies that I think can help you make a habit stick or, perhaps more crucially, how to tell if it’s just not for you, including:


  1. Starting small and easing your way into whatever it is you’re trying.
  2. Giving yourself a timeframe.
  3. Attaching your new habit to something you already do and enjoy doing.
  4. Keeping a visual log of your habit as you do them.
  5. How a little accountability can help make a habit take root and give you a sense of satisfaction from day one.
  6. Figuring out what might get in your way before you begin so you can plot a course around, or through, it.


As ever, I’d love to know what you think whether that’s in the comments below, on DM or via email. I make this podcast for YOU and if there’s anything you’d like to hear on this subject, or any other, please feel free to let me know.

Michelle Keegan on Past Fitness Fails and How She Found Healthy
This week’s episode of Going for Goal is a joyful January catch up between Women’s Health Editor-in-Chief Claire Sanderson and this month’s cover star, Michelle Keegan. The Brassic actress and bonafide national treasure chats about finding her groove with fitness and food - and shares her current workout formula. And while she’s in a great place with her lifestyle now, Michelle opens up about a time when she was training harder, but definitely not smarter. They also discuss the new positive habits Michelle has picked up in 2020 and how the past year has shifted her outlook when it comes to maintaining her relationships with friends and family. Oh, and there’s probably a good few minutes on her favourite snacks, too. So, if you are trying to keep a lid on the amount of between-meals morsels you’re consuming, maybe don’t listen when you’re peckish.

Rukmini Iyer: Author of The Roasting Tin cookbooks and food stylist
My guest today is Rukmini Iyer Rukmini is a former lawyer turned bestselling author of the Roasting Tin series which have now sold over half a million copies. Amongst her army of followers – who call themselves the TinLads. She counts Nigella Lawson as a fan as well as other famous names from Jay Rayner to Judy Murray. The concept of the Roasting Tin books is deceptively simple, Mini’s recipes lure people in with the idea of the one-pot supper. But people return time and time again because the recipes taste even better than the lack of washing up feels. A pioneer of the _and I quote: ‘put everything in a roasting tin and shove it in the oven’ school of cookery, Mini’s fourth cookbook features tasty, no-fuss dishes from across the globe. As well as writing cookbooks, Rukmini styles and writes recipes for numerous brands and publications, including Waitrose, The Guardian and Fortnum and Mason. Of her success and the reaction to her books, Mini says – ‘It’s one thing having fans who are like, "this is great for dinner", but to have fans who are saying that you’ve changed the way they eat is very humbling,’ ‘You never think that something like a cookbook could have that much effect on someone’. Thank you so much for listening. So so many delicious dishes talked about!
