Did you know that it is a MINIMUM of 21 days for a new habit to start becoming something to easily accomplish daily?
In most cases in can take up to 90 days for this new task to become part of your daily habits. The marker between 21 days and 90 days is the crucial time to stick with your plan. Whether that is adding in drinking water with every meal, quitting smoking, quitting drinking, adding in a new exercise regimen or a new eating plan.
Think back, when you started something new or was changing something old when did it feel like it become habit and not a chore?
I remember when I quit smoking many years ago, after only a couple of weeks it was no longer always on my mind. I may have still thought about it, but not like it was a habit anymore.
Below I share with you some of the changes I have made in my life and I believe that it is true that it takes between 3 weeks and 3 months to really feel the change is habit.
- Quit smoking 12 years ago
- Quit soda 13 years ago
- Quit diet soda 10 years ago
- started drinking water everyday 10 years ago
- Started working out daily 5 years ago
- started reading daily 3 years ago
- started my walk with Christ 2 years ago
- Started learning about feeding my body with quality calories 3 years ago
- Quit gossiping 6 years ago
- quit looking for negative thoughts about myself or others 6 years ago
There are some that I still need to pay attention to and to keep a good mindset on or I could easily fall down the rabbit hole, the biggest one being fueling my body with quality calories. I will admit I LOVE food!
