Changing habits – one habit at a time
Some statistics we all can benefit from:
Adopting one new habit at a time: 85% chance of success
Adopting two new habits at once: 35% chance of success
Adopting three or more habits at once : less than 10% of success
Habits need to be clearly defined and easy to measure. We need to simplify things by translation. Hence “eat more veggies” = eat two servings or more per day. “Incorporate exercise” = exercise three times per week = 30 mins per session. Much more achievable.
