Forming a Habit

How are the new year’s resolutions coming? Did you resolve to quit something? If so, you may be wondering when the quitting gets easier, and science is here to help. According to research (in the link below), scientists in England found that it takes 66 days (not the commonly-referenced 21 days) to form a habit, even if that habit is NOT to do something. So if you quit something – be it smoking, or drinking, or fast-food, or even negative self-talk (a great one to quit!) – then you’ve got about 62 more days before it’s a habit. But don’t despair, the article below gives you some tips on how to make it to 66!
