Change is not easy. But if you keep at it, you can make it your own.

Daily, we are bombarded with beautiful quotes and images containing great advice and new insights on how live a healthier life. And you may think, “Yes of course, this makes sense to me. I'm going to start this right away”.

But a few days later, you realize that you've already forgotten, that it hasn't become a part of you yet; that you haven't been able to make it a habit.

The twenty-one day myth
It's been said that it takes 21 days to form a new habit. The truth is that it will probably take anywhere from 18 to 254 days, or an average of 66 days.

Phillippa Lally, Health Psychology Researcher at University College London, studied 96 people over a 12 week period. She discovered that it may take anywhere from 2 to 8 months for a new behaviour to become automatic. How long it takes can vary widely depending on the bahaviour, the person and the circumstances. Interestingly, the research also found that “missing an opportunity to perform the behaviour did not materially affect the habit formation process”. In other words, it doesn't matter if you mess up every now and then. Building good habits is not an all-or-nothing process.
