Did you know it can take anywhere from 18 to 254 days for a person to form a new habit and an average of 66 days for a new behavior to become automatic. In the study entitled “Habits—A Repeat Performance” they state that habits make up approximately 40% of our daily activities.
If you want to be successful in reaching any goal(s) that you’ve set for yourself you need to create habits that get you to where you want to be. So work on creating habits that work FOR you. Don’t focus on ‘killing bad habits’ instead focus on ‘building good habits’ or ‘excellence habits’.
Here are some GOOD Habits you can look at adding to your day, every day:
Habit #1: Working Out Early (or at a set time every day)
Habit #2: Exercise When Fasted
