When considering new habits, it helps to think of them as 2-week experiments for a few reasons:
- You can do anything for 2 weeks.
- If you decide the cost outweighs the reward, you didn’t “waste” that much time.
- And if you choose to stick with it, 2 weeks is enough to build some momentum.
Cutting out sugar, a daily stretching routine, or that meditation practice you keep hearing about…
We get overwhelmed by the thought of having to stick to the new practice every day for the rest of our lives, so we often quit the idea entirely.
14 days: a 2-week experiment.
You’ve got nothing to lose. On the other hand, it could be the start of new habit that changes your life.
