In 1960 a doctor observed that it took 21 days for his patients to get used to their missing limbs, or their new faces after he performed those respective surgeries on them. As a result, the prevailing theory that it takes 21 days to form a new habit was born.
However, then a doctor in 2009 disproved that, and now people are saying it takes an average of 66 days to form a new habit. After months of studies, the shortest amount of time it took was 18 days, and the longest was 254.
This is my research done in order to stay positive after failing only 2 days in. So these are my positive take aways: NO ONE formed/changed a habit in 15 days and also NO ONE took longer than a year! I'm right on track to succeed!
So if you feel like taking on a new hobby, or forming a new habit, don't beat yourself up and quit after 2 weeks. Stick with it.
You got this.
