How To Make Long Lasting Change
Research has found that January 17th is generally the day most people give up on their resolutions. The good news is that 40% of people tend to make it to the 6 month mark on their New Year’s resolutions.
To make long lasting change in your life, it requires building and changing your habits.
According to author Gretchen Rubin, scheduling is one of the most effective ways to build better habits. “Scheduling forces us to confront the natural limits of the day” says Rubin in her book, Better Than Before: Mastering The Habits Of Our Everyday Lives.
Once you’ve decided when, and how often, a habit should occur. Determine how long you’d like to spend on that activity. The goal is consistency and repetition, not stamina. If you struggle to work out consistently, schedule a short workout once a week.
Scheduling helps you make time for the things that are important to you. It also reduces the reliance on self-control, which is what most people report as the most common reason for failure. It would also be wise to begin with habits that directly strengthen self-control.
Failure is inevitable.
The sooner you can forgive yourself and recommit to your resolutions, the faster you’ll reach your goals.
