The 2 Minute RuleMar 09, 2020
So when you’ve been out of a habit for a while you can’t just just back in full force or you’ll be disheartened.
The thought of going to the gym yesterday after 2 weeks off and doing a full leg session was actually stopping me from going so I decided to apply the 2 minute rule which comes from the book Atomic Habits.
So basically it means to begin the habit you have to just begin. For example saying I’ll read 2 pages a day gets you picking up that book, and once it’s opened who knows what you might read. This then forms an automatic habit over time.
So I applied this yesterday I just said to myself, OK Sinead, just go to the gym and for 10 squats, 10 dead lifts, 10 sit ups and 10 kettle bell swings.
So I went in with this intention and of course I ended up doing more and felt great.
It also works with other things in life like just go a fold 2 pieces of laundry, do 2 emails, do 2 minute on the treadmill.
Try it guys it’s defo works for me and I hope it works for you!
