Habits: 21 Days

I've seen this a number of times and wanted to share it, especially for those of us working on being consistent with our New Year's Resolution:

It takes at least 21 days to form a habit.

If you skip a day, then they say it's better to start over and give yourself another 21 days (so do it for real the first time!). It doesn't have to be consecutive calendar days, but the days should be scheduled and relatively close together for best results.

As it becomes a habit, it should become easier to do. Of course, even after 21 days, you'll still need daily discipline to maintain your habit. But rest assured that every good choice is worth it as small decisions everyday add up to big results.

If you need a helping hand establishing habits or goal-setting, contact me: Stay strong and good luck!
