The other day I was reading up on habits and I found this to be very interesting. I find it a challenge to start new habits so I’m kind of excited about this. I love challenges. I’m going to take this way of thinking and make it work for me. I just like the way it’s broken down.
The 3 Phrases of Building a Habit
- Phase 1 (Days 1-7) is called HELL WEEK. What to expect: The changing of any habit is incredibly hard at the beginning. Think about it…You are re-wiring your brain in a way that it has not operated for many years or even your whole life. It’s going to be VERY tough. But the beautiful part about this phase is it’s very short lived in one week.
- Phase 2 (Days 8-21) is about STAYING CONSISTENT.What to expect: The second phase is all about solidifying this new habit in your brain through one important factor: consistency.
- Phase 3 (Days 22-66+) is about REWIRING YOUR BRAIN.What to expect: By the third phase, the foundations of any habit have been built. Now it’s all about pushing it to the next level so you’re getting the most out of it. This phase is about habit mastery.
