21 Day Habit

Have you heard that it takes 21 days to form a habit?  

It takes at least 21 days to form a habit. This means that you have to do something at least 21 times before it begins to become part of your everyday routine. So . . .

  1. Decide exactly what you want to do. Write it down and post it where you can see it every day, like your bathroom mirror. Be as specific as possible.
    I will keep my bathroom clean.  (Yes, it is a small goal for some, but for me this is huge!)  bgFirst I will clean the bathroom (obviously)  Then I will keep items off the counter and wipe it daily. 

  2. Schedule time to do what you want to do. Again, it takes 21 days to form a habit, so schedule at least 21 days on your calendar and don't let anything get in the way of your schedule. If you miss one of your scheduled days, it's best to start over and schedule another 21 days. You must be consistent and dedicated to doing what you want to do.
    I will tidy the bathroom everyday after I shower and dress.

3.Once you reach your 21 days, congratulations! Don't stop now though, schedule another 21 days, and then another and so on, until you do those things you want to do, without even thinking about them . . . like brushing your teeth.
Wish Me Luck!

I'm thinking about eating oatmeal every morning instead of going without breakfast. And I'm cutting my coffee intake to one cup per day. I have to do this 21 times, huh? Is that in a row? What if I skip a day? Does that mean I have to start my 21 days all over again?

Good luck. Getting into a new routine is always hard, but you'll do awesome.
