Stick with it!

This is the time of year for resolutions and forming new habits. Unfortunately, many people will backslide and fail to follow through on their resolutions by January 31st.  And many people will use this as an excuse to give up.

Here’s some good and bad news about forming habits.

The bad news – It takes much longer to form a habit than previously thought.  Current research shows it takes an average of nine and a half weeks to form a  new habit.  Just like it takes longer to shed those extra pounds than it did to put them on!

The good news – Missing one or two days of practing the new habilt will not impact the habit-forming process.

If the habit is important to you, don’t use missing a day or two as an excuse for giving up.  Keep your goals in mind and remember anything is possible!
