It Takes Two Months To Make A "Resolution" A Real Habit

About 40% of Americans make New Year’s resolutions each year, vowing to eat healthier, get more exercise, save more money, drink less, and more. But most people break those resolutions after less than two weeks. Why? Because change is hard. Researchers found that it takes a whopping 66 days to turn a resolution into a habit. That’s more than two months of persistent work and dedication before that habit really takes hold. (MarketWatch)
