10 Minute lifestyle change
Start today and do something everyday. 10 min walks matter and I encourage you to make them a time to contemplate and be relaxed. Or take a friend or a your pet for accountability and companionship.
21 days to make a habit myth:
On average, it takes more than 2 months before a new behavior becomes automatic — 66 days to be exact.
In other words, if you want to set your expectations appropriately, the truth is that it will probably take you anywhere from two months to eight months to build a new behavior into your life — not 21 days.
So commit to doing something 10 minutes daily...as a lifestyle change not a short term goal.
I mentioned 10 minutes of walking but here are some other ideas:
