Change is hard. A study conducted by Phillippa Lalley suggested that “the time it took participants to reach 95% of their asymptote of automaticity ranged from 18 to 254 days; indicating considerable variation in how long it takes people to reach their limit of automaticity and highlighting that it can take a very long time.” Sounds a little discouraging doesn’t it? But there’s good news. It means that all those times you tried to get in a good habit or get out of a bad habit, and you just didn’t quite make the mark, maybe that particular habit just needed a little extra love and is still an attainable goal. As a yoga practitioner and wellness advocate, I firmly believe in the power of the mind. Creating positive associations to reinforce your new habit may help you to turn a new leaf.
