Stick to it every day. Habits can often take a while to create, but research shows the more often we do them, the faster they form.
Start small. Making a drastic life change is difficult even for the most disciplined people. Starting with a smaller habit, such as taking a short walk every day, could develop into a larger habit — like a jog that leads to a run. Before you know it, you’re finishing a 5K!
Reward yourself. Some rewards, such as weight loss, can take a while to show up. Giving yourself immediate rewards, like taking a few minutes to call a friend, can help you stick with your goals.
