There's a saying that it takes 3 weeks to form a habit. It's become a frequently cited "fact" that is actually a misconception from a book written in 1960 by Dr. Maxwell Maltz called Psycho-Cybernetics. That book prompted thousands of self-help gurus like Tony Robbins to jump on the bandwagon touting you need only 21 days to get it done...whatever"it" may be.
What do you have on your "It List"?
Some call "it" their New Year's Resolutions.
And since we are in our third week of 2016, you may be well on your way to "it" already.
Last year, resolutions that made the Top 10 were to (1) Lose Weight, (2) Get Organized, (4) Enjoy life to the Fullest and (8) Help Others in their Dreams. Another survey that listed the top 50 showed #22 - "To Do something Pro-Active for a cause, such as help the homeless, local farms, refugees, etc."
The Giv360 app can help you accomplish a lot of these resolutions, and you don't even have to break a sweat.
It can't make you lose weight, but it can help you eat better. Visit Green Ginger for a delicious avocado salad, Tofu Pad Thai or a plate of hibachi and kick your taste buds into first gear. You may find all that healthy eating helps you drop the pounds after all.
And what better way to enjoy life and de-stress than to choose a Swedish, hot stone or deep tissue massage from Harmony Massage? They even offer ear candling, skincare and foot massages.
The great news is it's not too late!
And though real science and studies have determined that it actually takes a bit longer than 3 weeks - (about 66 days is the average) to form a habit, you can do it in one day by downloading the Giv360 app!
So if #22 was also on your list and you want to be more generous, you can start right now. And you don’t even have to remember to give because Giv360 does it for you every time you visit a participating Giv360 merchant. They'll donate up to 5% of your purchase to the non-profit of your choice.

All that and you don't need 66 days to do it!
