With my many health issues consistency has been one of my biggest struggles. I have never understood why it can be so much harder to practice behaviors that create a better life than than those that create negative consequences. How I have to train my brain to think positive or focus on gratitude. Today I was reading about the magic number of 40. At 40 days a new behavior begins becoming a habit and the old patterns begin to release. At 90-120 days the new behavior becomes a part of you. I have heard it said that 1000 days is mastering of the new behavior. if I go back and forth from an old to new behavior it never becomes a part of me. This only makes change harder. I have truly experienced this! Consistency is the key to true change!
