Well it is a new year after all, we're supposed to be dieting, detoxing, joining gyms, buying work out DVD's, giving up chocolate or alcohol, quitting the snacks and cutting the calories.
We are what we repeatedly do. Therefore, excellence is not an act. It is a habit.” — Aristotle
We’ve heard that it takes approximately 66 days to form a habit. For example, if each day, for 66 days, you come home from work or school and force yourself to work out, run, bike or take an aerobics class for about an hour and then plan dinner. What would you do on the 66th day? It will be a habit—just like getting up and brushing your teeth each morning. It will require no thought. It will just be something you do.
