- Use notes, lists, and friends to remind you to consciously repeat a behavior or action.
- Use “triggers” too.
Those are things that remind you. If you do a quick meditation each time you get in your car, the car becomes your trigger. The morning alarm, seeing the sun, a place – anything can be a trigger.
- Basically, you need to use anything you can to remember to do the things you want to become habit.
Some psychologists say it takes about three weeks to form a habit, which seems about right, but we’re all different.
Consciously repeat an action or behavior until it becomes automatic – and that’s how long it takes for you.
