A habit is best formed when it becomes a routine, so what better way to form a routine than to make it quick and manageable . . . like something that can be done in ONE MINUTE.
I say this because one minute seems doable, right? It’s not overwhelming to think about; it doesn’t involve a large time commitment. You can do just about anything for a minute.
I started this a few years back . . . At first, I spent my minute in the morning making the bed when I would first wake up. But then that habit was formed. Making my bed every morning (some days with all the pillows on top; some days minimally made, but made) is now part of my regular routine. I later used my minute to do a plank—planks are not fun, but the short time constraint made it possible. I did this regularly for months and it paid off. Sadly, I got away from it, but. . .it’s back on. The plank will once again be my one minute challenge.
What will yours be?
Give it a try. . .whether it is spending a minute praying, exercising, or even flossing your teeth. Determine what habit you would like to form and try the One Minute Method to make it stick.
