Secrets of Success

Efforts Become Habits



What I know from the past and am relearning is that every day that I make it out to walk, bike, hike, whatever, adds to "the routine". 5 or 6 straight days of walking could turn into months or years of it.

    yes a day without a 5 mile walk makes me feel slow & sluggish for the rest of the day. - by REMUS55
  • You are so correct about making those efforts and eventually they become a routine that we think nothing of doing. I think I have heard that 2 weeks of a daily item can make it a habit. The sad part is that it takes a lot of effort to get the habit and easy to lose if a person lets it. - by CTTAGENT
  • Now *that* is a really powerful, simple idea. Five or six straight days of a new habit could turn into years or a lifetime of a healthier, happier direction. Thanks for this! - by OPERAMOM3
