On average, it takes approximately two months to form a new habit or routine, so the sooner you start the better. A great way to form a new routine is to place a wall calendar in your office or a place you will see every day. Remind yourself of the new routine that you have set for yourself by crossing off each day that you have been successful. If possible, start your new routine in the morning so your day will be off to an encouraging start. Activities like exercise, meditation, and reading are great ways to start off the day.
