How long does it take to create a new habit?

If you are trying to achieve a certain goal that you have set, often you also need to create a new habit to reach that goal.

Some people can fear the word ‘habit’ as it implies change, yet research shows that discipline and habit are essential to achieving the life you want.

Research that was conducted in 2009 determined that it takes an average of 66 days to create a habit. The full range was 18 to 254. So obviously, depending on how much of a change the habit is, it can be within that time frame. 66 days was the sweet spot.

So, if it takes 66 days to create a new habit that will help you achieve your goals – what are you waiting for?

What is a habit you need to create to help you get to where you want to be?

I have attached our 66 day habit worksheet where you can start tomorrow (or even TODAY!) and mark off each day that you do the action required.

The worksheet gives you something to be accountable for. Put it on your fridge or on your bathroom mirror – somewhere where you will see it regularly during the day.

Don’t be too hard on yourself though. If you miss a day or two – don’t give up. Just get back into crossing more days off!

So whatever your goal is, download the 66 day habit worksheet and work towards the life you dream of!
