Creating New Habits
They say it takes 21 days to create a new habit. Sounds easy enough, when I remember to do it! I am usually pretty good the first handful of days, then it goes south. Generally I just forget, and sometimes I try to forget. So the other day I blew the regime of some new supplements on day 3. One requires on an empty stomach while the other is on full stomach. Since they are both taken twice a day, I thought I am going to have to write this down. Then it occurred to me...print it out on a notepad along with some other things that I am always striving to make a daily habit, such as drinking more water, flossing, keeping house in order, etc. Then print out 21 pages for a notepad. Keep it in sight and cross off as day goes on - so rewarding! If I follow this, then after 21 days I have created a bunch of great habits all at once! Seems like I am getting by with something;)
I make lots of lists on my phone for things like this but I forget about them. I guess it is because I always have my phone with me so there is nothing to jog my memory! So I am going to try this and thought I would share this in case it appeals to others. Wish me luck!
