It takes 40 days to create a new habit; 20 days to break the old habit, and 20 days to form the new one.
As the new year is approaching quickly, a lot of us are thinking about what the 2018 resolutions will be. If you are like me, there is a laundry list of things that you want to work on, and are ambitious to get going as soon as possible.
You probably see many articles about 30 days to a "new you". However, I want to share with my audience the power of 40 days to create a new habit and stick with it until you want to improve yourself further.
So why the 40 days?
According to the Kundalini Yoga which is one of the main principles that Namaste Roots embraces, it takes 20 days to just break the old habit and 20 days to form and adopt the new one. A great way to compliment any new habit you may choose to add a meditation to your daily routine.
With my readers, I personally will start working on setting a routine sleeping schedule and will utilize one of my favorite meditations; self love.
As the Namaste Roots community let's hold each other accountable, ourselves accountable and practice a yogic way to create a new habit that we can carry-on in a long term. Remember if for any reason you skip a day, it is perfectly OK, you can restart again. Most yogis break the consecutive days and restart about 3 times before fully being able to get in the routine. There are no judgements here, only true, caring, and positive support.
