Do you know about the one minute rule, this famous one states that, if you can force your self to keep 1 min during your day to do one single thing every day at the same exact minute. you’ll get used to it after 7 days, which is well said.
Try to keep a single minute in your daily life, 1 minute to do a habit that you want to acquire, and it would be perfect to do it at the same time everyday so that you’ll get used to it, at the beginning, and in order to get comfortable with this process, i would propose for you to try it with something very simple as a start, for example: keep one minute before your get to bed to just brush you teeth at the same exact time everyday, this will get you used to sleep at the same early time that you want, this may allow you to get used to a daily routine before you sleep. with this 1 minute you can build another 5 minute when you’re getting used to it.
This Last is to keep yourself on track to build new good habits, and arrange your daily schedule.
There’s another thing that we suffer from when we are building habits, it’s what we call it laziness, there’s another approach of this concept, is that when you’re building a habit of one minute start, you never say that “ this is too much, i cannot do it” or “ i’m so tired i can’t go for this”, when you are building this 1 minute habit you get used to it simply and when you forget it one day you feel like you’re missing something and you won’t feel rested until you do it.
This one Minute rule can help you build very powerful habits that can change your life:
- 1 minute reading before bed, can get you to read Books in no time.
- 1 minute to make your bed once you get up, can get you to make a daily routine and wake up with energy.
- 1 minute to make your daily plan once the office, may help you to re arrange your thoughts
- 1 minute to meditation afterwork, may help you to build a restful routine to recharge your feelings and get rid of your daily stress.
All the task and the things that can be done in a minute, should be done.
Do not ignore this 1 minute thing, it might appear strange, but it worth a try it’s only 1 minute in your 1440 minutes a day.
