How to Create Healthy Habits

In 2009, a study in the European Journal of Social Psycology, found that the average number of days it takes to incorporate a new habit into a daily routine is 66.  As I write, we are 12 days into the month of January, the most popular time for people to be challenging new habits.  In case you are needing some inspiration to keep working on a new healthy habit, go ahead and put a gold star on the calendar for Monday March 9th as this will be 66 days from January 1st.  Be persistent until then and you may just have yourself a new healthy habit!
