Doctors’ tips for turning resolutions into habits that stick Lauren Whittresolutionresolutions
According to Lauren Whitt, Ph.D. of the University of Alabama, Birmingham, day four of a resolution is the killer of good intentions, so it being January 10, you may have already thrown in the towel, but as far as the docs are concerned, any day is a good one to get back in the game.
“The first day of a new behavior – you’re excited – and that positive feeling carries over into day two,” Whitt said. “By day three, you start to get tired of it. By day four, it can drop off. Make it past day four and you are well on your way to making a new behavior a habit.”
And making a resolution into a lifestyle change is the key to having room on the to-do list for 2014 (like traveling – see, things are looking up already).
