I was listening to a strength and conditioning coach give a talk last weekend and one of the things that he said has stuck with him and has got me thinking ever since. You have probably heard the theory before all around forming habits and the time it takes to do so. This trainer told me that it takes 21 consecutive days of doing an action for it to become a habit. Something as simple as this was like music to my ears because it now puts a timeline on getting into the rhythm of doing something that may have seemed unnecessarily impossible in my head. It’s the 21 Action!
So, the question I put to you is…. What is the one thing you can focus on doing day in day out for the next 21 days to create a positive habit in your life?
Mine is going to be getting myself out of bed early, before 6am, every day (bar the weekend). This has been plaguing me for a while now, especially when it’s cold and dark until 6.30! To prove I am sticking to my 21 Action, I am going to keep myself accountable by commenting on this post at the time I get up every morning!… It is currently 5.30am so I am off to a good start.
Tell me what your 21 Action is and do the same, comment on the post that you have completed it on a daily basis.
Have an incredible week!
