5 Best Apps To Help You Create New Habits
I’ve heard it takes anywhere from 19-40 days to create a new habit. You might start out wanting to meditate daily, but then get distracted on day 5 and forget. You might feel you just can’t make time every single day for 10 minutes of meditation.
One way to really stay motivated to solidify new habits in your life is to use apps that will remind you of the habits you’re working on and why you’re working towards them. Habits either contribute to your life or detract from it - they make up the parts of the vehicle you use to propel you towards (or away from) success.
Think about this for a moment. When you create habits that keep you in a high-vibration state (like exercise, using positive affirmations, taking vitamins, doing something that relaxes you), your brain will create patterns that make you do these things naturally. The same way you brush your teeth twice a day, you’ll keep yourself in a high-vibration state without thinking, and voila, the law of attraction will work in your favour!
The law of attraction states that vibrations attract similar vibrations, and it will work to your benefit when your train your mind and body to think and live positively and healthfully!
