☆ establish 確立する
Have you ever heard that it takes 21 days to establish a habit? 21 days seems to be the most popular time frame. Depending on the habit, however, really it can take a much longer or even a shorter time to establish a habit. Recently I taught my 7 year old son how to use the washing machine, he was pretty excited and has been doing his own washing from start to finish for 3 weeks now! At first he was really motivated because it was a new “machine” that he was allowed to use, and so he didn’t even realize he was doing a “chore”… Now 21 days has passed and I’m hoping he will still do his own washing (without me asking him to do it) because he has established the habit of doing it.
Are there any habits that you have established in your life? How did you do it? How long did it take? Hopefully you have established the habit of reading this mini mail daily. 😉 What other habits?
