Oops, I forgot to post yesterday’s green smoothie! How embarrassing, but I promise I did have one. I even took a picture of these beautiful rainbow collard greens from our CSA that I used for my greens.
As a rule of thumb, it takes roughly 28 days to create a habit. Recent studies are showing a few ways to make a habit faster. One way is to make yourself accountable. For this 30 days of green smoothies, I have chosen to post each day. My penalty for failing to post is knowing that all of you will know it and that is quite embarrassing. Sooooo I definitely don’t want to start off another post like this again!
Another way to help create a healthy habit is to tie it to something you do already. For example, memorizing vocabulary words while you brush your teeth or drinking a glass of water before every meal. You were already going to brush your teeth and eat a meal, which makes them good triggers for the positive habit.
A third way to make a new habit is to know what your goal is and write it down. My goal is to make green smoothies a daily habit again. When these 30 days are over, I want to continue drinking green smoothies on a frequent and regular basis.
Today, I am happy to post another successful day of green smoothies! This delicious blend of kale, lemon, blueberry, protein powder, and udo’s oil was quite refreshing on this hot summer morning. 🙂Pin It
