Habit Forming

12 days… that’s how long it has been since I have made a post; I am failing at updating once or twice a week.  I don’t know why I can’t just get myself to sit down and let my brain release some of its thoughts.

Recently I have been trying to become more productive and in my efforts to do so I have been reading articles on habit forming, how that all works and how I can create better habits for myself. One thing I need to get in the habit of doing is writing more; writing more will help me in so many areas in my life I’m not sure why I can’t get myself to do it.

A couple articles I read said that it takes 14 days to make or break a habit, others seem to suggest that it takes anywhere from 21 to 66 days to make a habit and stick with it. Another article even suggested that once you have built a habit you just do it second nature and your brain actually goes into a cruise control kind of mode; how exactly would that work for writing? You do have to think to create words and sentences and make a post that is somewhat cohesive.

Every morning I get up at 5am to go workout, I get home at 6:45am and I proceed to do whatever needs to be done before I start getting ready for work; making breakfast, lunch, washing clothes, cleaning up my living areas, etc. So I think blogging will now also be included in that timeframe. Because if I can’t get myself to do it at night I am going to try to get it in in the morning.

What are ways that you find it helpful to fit a task into your busy schedule?

Here’s to making new habits.
