I’ve often told clients, and even written in our nutritional program, that it takes 21 days to start a habit. Everyone knows 21 days is the magic number. Right? To be honest when I wrote our healthy habits nutritional program 6 years ago, I spent a lot of time trying to figure out where the 21-day rule came from. I got every book I could find on the subject of habit formation (which weren’t many), and I scoured the internet. I found many claims that it takes 21 days to start a habit, but I couldn’t find any scientific evidence to support the fact. After a while I finally gave up and went with the popular notion that 21 days is the magic number to change anything in your life. In other words, I finally just gave in to conventional wisdom and believed in the magic of the Tooth Fairy. Continue reading

I always get excited about the month of December. Since it’s the last month of the year, I always spend time evaluating how the year went, looking at what goals I accomplished and where I fell short, and planning what I want to accomplish in the next 12 months. The other things I get excited about during December are celebrating the birth of my Savior, giving gifts to friends, family and random strangers, and helping those in need.
I love to give gifts to others all year long, but there always seems to be something magical and childlike about giving in the month of December. For me it’s just exciting to consider how much I’ve been blessed and to share those blessings with others. Continue reading
So what’s the toughest job in the world? I used to think it was being a small business owner, but in the last year I’ve realized there is a job that is much tougher—being a mom.
I had no idea until we had our own newborn how much work it really is: making food, changing diapers, washing diapers (yes we do that at my house), cleaning up after the baby (can anyone say projectile vomit?), getting up all hours of the night with the baby, and then trying to find time to clean the house and shop for groceries—this list could just keep going. Oh, and I forgot to mention trying to make time for yourself, and maybe even throwing in a little time with dad once in while. Continue reading
