28 days makes a habit
28 days makes a habit… Bullshit. I am just going to go ahead and say that now. I have officially run 28 days in a row and I could easily stop tomorrow. Wouldn’t even bat an eye. Part of the science beyond this is that 28 days is a short enough period of time to commit, ie “you can do anything for a minute” “you can commit to anything for 28 days.” After these 28 days you should be able to continue the habit that you formed. To form a habit, especially when it comes to changing your lifestyle, I think it takes a lot longer than 28 day. I would say more like 90 days. You are changing years of the current behavior, how can 28 days undo it. How can 90 days undo it, but I feel after 3 months of work you are more likely to continue, especially if you are seeing results.
So what is keeping me going right now? My goal. I am going to get to my 105th day in my run streak. I feel like I have something to prove, maybe I do… I’ll let you guys know when I think I have adopted a new habit, you have a good couple months.
