How to Create lasting habits with the 21/90 Day rule.

1.Set Your goal

What is the habit you want to achieve? Why do you want to achieve it? How will it benefit you in your new life? Ask yourself these questions. Make sure you write you write it down. The best way to achieve a goal is to give 100 percent so do one habit at a time.

2.Habit tracker /Timer

This has been the most helpful tool for me to use. A habit tracker is a tool you use to measure whether or not you did your habit. So for me, my goal was to do 7 days of yoga for 20 minutes. I would create circles on my calendar for each day of the week and when I completed 20 mins of yoga that day, I would fill in the circle. The circle was a representation of completing my goal. Kind of like a reward system.

Tracking your habits helps show your consistency in your new goal and added motivations. I create a Habit Tracker free to download and use here.

3.Habit Stacking

Instead of pressuring yourself to create a brand new routine in your life, instead, attach a new habit to an already existing routine. Before I began my new yoga routine, I created a morning routine of journaling one full page. So to make things easier for myself, I would journal a full page and do 20 mins of yoga immediately after. This took the pressure off trying to find time in my day to incorporate a new habit. Just add a new habit to an existing one.
