They say it takes 12 weeks to make, break or change a habit. Now is the time to begin when most other distractions and excuses are removed.
We’ve got the time now, doesn’t it make sense to build some new good habits, rather than begin making bad ones that will be harder to break when isolation is over?
These days for people who aren’t working, the majority seem to be going to bed later, sleeping in longer, taking naps in the afternoon when early morning rises are a must. It will be oh so much harder to get back into our routine when we go back to work. So, why not keep ourselves on schedule and make it a habit? Leave the weekends or your normally scheduled days off for the lay ins. It’s okay to take it easy but it is definitely habit forming.
Our excuses about being too tired after working all day are gone. We have the time now and we can begin something new. It doesn’t always have to be a fitness regime, although those are good too. We can take up time to try painting, sketching, photography, writing, wood working; the things we say one day, when I have time.
Now is the time. It might be the only time you have to try it. Once we go back to working, it will be hectic and we will find little time again.
Take advantage of the time you have. Now is the time to build, change or break some habits, both good and bad.
