60 Days to Better Health

Full Story

How many days does it take to form a new habit? Many studies point to 21 days as the magic number, while other studies suggest it takes months and sometimes up to year for a habit to take hold. Health educators and nutritionists with the Florida Department of Health often promote the health benefits of small lifestyle changes: eating more vegetables and fruits, replacing sodas with water, taking daily walks or choosing the stairs over elevators. These are doable and budget-friendly goals that can fold into your days, become routine and over time do amazing things for your health. The hardest part of healthy habits, after all, is making them stick.
