30 day trial - great idea!

thanks to an inspiring and energising article I read online today, I've decided to give the notion of a 30 day trial of a new habit a go. To read more about this visit

Basically, the idea is to set a 30 day trial limit on a new habit, behaviour etc. This appeals to me as the idea of changing or starting something FOREVER seems quite daunting and actually a bit dull, like, I might change my mind! I might find it too hard! I might not like it! So this 30 day idea is great for me. The best bit is, whether you continue after the 30 days or not, you'll have contributed something valuable and positive you your life - how cool is that?

Its a great way of testing new habits which you're not sure of, or I suspect (!) of tricking yourself into thinking there's an end to the habit/ behaviour etc. Supposedly it takes a month to break or make a new habit so I guess by the end of the trial, the habit will be formed and you get to decide whether to break it or keep it. Either way it seems like a good one for those of us (me included!) who don't like being told what to do, even by ourselves!

Interestingly, I am much more interested in aquiring new, positive habits thank I am in breaking existing, negative ones...hmmm.. perhaps if I get into the swing of this, I could take it in turns to make or break.
