It takes on average 66 days* to make something a habit (ie – for a new behaviour to become automatic). Having just spent the last 365 days in arguably entirely different circumstances to which we have all been used to, it would make sense then that our habits have all undergone a huge change. Some of those habits may well be a change for the better, but some will be ones that need amending in order to return to a more structured and routine way of life.
How then do we start to put together both those good habits which we want to take forward whilst also breaking some of the bad ones we have picked up along the way?
This last twelve months has been incredibly challenging for us all. But it has given us a unique opportunity to sit back and reassess which habits add value and which do not. Let’s ensure we make best use of the time we now have to make the amendments needed to move on in a positive manner.
