QUOTE OF THE DAY
“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, it is not an act, but a habit”. Aristotle Tweet
Last Summer, I wanted to try being an early riser. I had no interest in making this a lifelong change, but I’d read a lot about the health benefits of waking up early, so I committed to it for 21 days just for the experience. I was already eating healthy regularly. I can’t say it was hard at all. Within a week I noticed an increase in my concentration, and I felt more clear-headed. At the end of the 21 days, it was a no-brainer to stick with it. This change looked a lot harder than it really was.
Bottomline is, this 21-day method seems to work best for daily habits. This is what I’d do when starting a new exercise program. What habit do you want to establish or abolish?
Give 21 days a shot and see how it goes! This is one pill your mother would approve……
This week’s read from our friend around the web.
Beauty in the eye of the beholder? No, today, beauty is in the eye of the Internet. This, 2015, was the year that beauty went fully social, when A-listers valued their looks according to their “likes” and one Instagram post could connect with millions of followers. Turn the page for TWeF’s weekly wellness list, based on news and trends.
