I am a big fan of new years resolutions, goal planning, goal tracking, etc. I've started to put together my list of resolutions for 2014 and I'm up to 12 so far and none of those resolutions relate to finances. Eight of my draft resolutions relate to health and fitness.
I learned back in psychology that it takes 4 weeks to develop a new habit. Indeed, one of the reasons rehab is 28 days is based on the 4 week new habit model. Today, I read an article over on today.com that it actually takes closer to 66 days to establish a new habit.
So, if today is day 1 of a new behavior, stick with it for a couple of months and it should become an actual habit.
Here is to a happy, healthy and prosperous 2014.
