Chances are you’ve probably heard that it takes “21 days to form a habit.” People love to throw this stat around, especially this time of year when so many people are making resolutions and vowing not to break them. Other studies suggest that it actually takes 66 days to form a habit, which sounds more reasonable, but is still a pretty arbitrary number.
This is all to say that, as you approach your last week of activity suggestions in this 21-day movement program, don’t beat yourself up if you feel like you haven’t found that one magic workout that’s going to change your approach to exercise forever. The whole point of us introducing you to the concept of Joyful Movement is for you to explore different ways of moving, and to change the way you think about exercise. We hope we've helped you get started on developing your own workout routine and habits, and fitness goals that work for you — and you alone.
