It’s an effort, till it’s a habit

At first, doing something different or even just more than you did before, is an effort. If you keep doing it with good reason and with intent, it will eventually become a habit.

21 days to form a habit is a myth, that’s peddled especially well by apps that want your attention. A scientific study found variation of between 18 and 254 days, depending on the individual. 66 days was the average.

If it’s worth doing, persist. What feels like effort will be a beneficial norm in time – and then you can level up again.
