I’ve been told countless times that 3 weeks is all you need to break a habit. But three weeks can be a long time.
A lot can happen in three weeks (I mean ask Kim Kardashian – three weeks is almost a third of her marriage to Kris Humphries)!
You don’t really notice a habit until you no longer do it, and any habit, regardless of how small it is, can be hard to break. The habit that I focused on breaking this past month was nail biting. I used to bit my nails when I was nervous, when I was unsure of a situation, when I had no control of an outcome… college was hard on my nails!
This past month was devoted to stopping this annoying habit. Specifically I focused on my thoughts and feelings and how to fix them, rather than avoid them and take it out on my sad nails…
