Have you ever had a conviction to start a new habit or make a change in your life?

Something as simple as, cutting back on soda, going to bed at a certain time or picking up a new skill could be the nudge you are getting toward change.

But then, a simple change becomes the insurmountable mountain to climb.

You are not alone. While habits are easy to pick up, changing them is a different case.

According to studies, it can take up to 21 days of consistently doing a particular thing in order to break the habit.

You may also find that sometimes your relationships, your environment, and even your own mind will try to sike you out of your own desire to change.

Your friend makes a big deal about you not drinking soda every time you go out almost to the point of nagging.
