Since tomorrow is National Train Your Brain Day how about we work on training your brain to stay organized?
Lets create some new habits.
Make being organized a habit
Habit is defined as: a settled or regular tendency or practice, especially one that is hard to give up.
For some of you it is hard to stay organized. It might be remembering to put your keys in the same place every time, to return the toaster to its assigned cupboard or to fold the laundry as you take it out of the dryer.
But you can train your brain to do just those things.
Researchers believe it takes an average of 66 days to create a habit.
Some will tell you that it only takes 21 days and then you are disappointed or frustrated that you have not formed a new habit in 22 days. Don’t be.
It takes longer but if you keep working at the new trait or way of doing things you will succeed in making this a new habit.
The brain is an amazing thing. It can learn at any stage in life. Actually, we utilize a small portion of our brainpower for day-to-day mental ability.
Ready to train your brain? Outstanding!
Pick a problem.
Maybe for you it is that is you frequently lose your keys.
Devise a solution.
Determine a place for your keys to go and always put them there. Not any other place. Hang a hook by the door or put a bowl on the entry table. You find a spot that works for you. But you must be diligent and consistent. Train your brain that is where the keys go.
Don’t get overwhelmed. Remember habit take on average 66 days to become a habit. You may not be average. So if it takes longer, no worries. Think about how long you have struggling with being disorganized. I say it’s like losing weight. It wasn’t all gained in 30 days so it’s not going to all lost in 30 days. But if I stay with it I will succeed.
You can do it. I am here to help.
Let me know how you are doing. I enjoy your comments and look forward to your feedback. Thanks
