For those who have started off 2017 with a specific goal in mind, this is for you.
According to a recent scientific study, forming a new habit takes an average of 66 days. (It varied a lot among participants.) If you are starting a new workout routine, it is estimated that it takes 4 weeks for you to see a result. It takes 8 weeks for family and friends to notice, and it takes 12 weeks for the rest of the world to see a change.
While this may seem overwhelming, each day forward is progress. It is important to take notice of each time you get closer to the goal. Making a new habit is hard work, but you can do it!
Much of what I have learned about physical therapy and online health/wellness, I have learned from Greg Todd, the founder of Physical Therapy Builder. He is a fantastic physical therapist whose mission is to help physical therapists provide patient focused care without becoming overwhelmed. Greg Todd is also known as a “social media guru,” and I have a lot of thank him for. I highly suggest his courses, especially Smart Success PT. In May, I plan to attend Smart Success PT Live, a business, marketing, and branding course by some of the top PT entrepreneurs in the field.
