Do you ever feel like creating healthier habits (working out, eating better, etc.) is a lot of harder than it should be? Hang on, because this has got some news for you that might make you feel a whole lot better about it!

In fact, over the next few weeks there will be some powerful info that makes creating new habits a whole LOT easier.

In a nutshell, it all comes down to one thing. Your MINDSET. Once you get your mindset right, everything else begins to fall into place.

Fun fact: Did you know that having a positive mindset can actually help you make healthier choices and actually live longer?

Even better fact: You don’t have to be born with a positive mindset. It’s something you can create and strengthen over time.

We’ve all struggled with mastering new habits – things like meal prep (and then actually eating the meals we prepped), sticking with a new workout plan, getting up earlier, reading more, etc.

When some people have tried to get back into their habit of using their food journal after every meal, they’ll do great for a few days (or even a few weeks) and then boom!

All of a sudden they forget or (confession) totally blow it off. Maybe it’s because they’re busy, tired, or who knows what. Anyway, they start slipping.

And then they start to feel a little guilty… then they get angry or upset with themselves… and then they end up saying they’ll just start again tomorrow. (Cue the endless loop of frustration!)

Well, have you ever heard the saying that it only takes three weeks to make a new habit? People are not sure who came up with that number, but guess what? It’s WRONG!

It actually takes NEARLY THREE TIMES LONGER than that – depending on the person, the habit, and the situation.

A study from Australia found that on average, it takes about 66 days to develop a new habit.

This news actually makes some people feel a lot better, and it may you, too. It takes the pressure off being “perfect” right out of the gate.

Creating a new habit can be hard, and you can end up with unrealistic expectations – like having it mastered in just a few weeks.

Good news! The study also showed that missing a day or two doesn’t mean you’re back to square one in creating the habit.

Be prepared to slip up now and then, and when you do, get yourself back on track as soon as possible. Eventually, it WILL become easier, especially when you start to see the results of all your effort!

Lasting changes take time – so whenever possible, make sure you enjoy the ride! It’ll increase the likelihood you’ll own that new habit.
