They used to say that it takes 21 days to create a new habit. I recently read somewhere that it actually takes 66 days to form a new habit. The daily repetition helps create new pathways in the brain, so the more you do something the easier it gets because the paths will trace over themselves.
While I’m always trying to improve and form new and better habits, it can be difficult to do things repeatedly, every day at the same time. But it’s fascinating to see how things that you practiced when you were young are still applicable into adulthood. My study habits from college are what bring me to create every day. I like to write things down. I like to keep everything organized so I know exactly where everything is. Keep in mind that forming new habits doesn’t mean you need to do something for a long chunk of time daily. Every little bit counts as long as you don’t stop. Which reminds me – it’s time to do my reading for the day.
