Make a Post-It Note Countdown to Stick to Your Habit Plan


Make a Post-It Note Countdown to Stick to Your Habit PlanS

Forming a good habit needs you to stick with it for many days. The old “21 days” myth has been busted and it seems 66 days is what you need. To keep a track of that and follow up on it, try using coloured sticky notes with numbers written on them, which you tear off with each passing day.

This plan was originally written at Life Without Bread And Butter, and adopted by The Amazing Adventures of Diet Girl blog. Both posts were written keeping the 21-day habit myth in mind, but if you’re trying it, change that to 66 days.

The idea is to stick these notes in a prominent spot, one which you will see everyday. And when you achieve your goal on any day, tear that out. It’s more visual than having an app on your phone to keep track, and the physical act of tearing off that note is quite satisfying, the bloggers note.

The Post-It Messages This Stay-at-Home Dad Writes about Parenthood Will Make You Smile So Big


if stuffed animals ever come alive to kill humans i am so screwed

In May 2010 writer Chris Illuminati quit his job to become a stay-at-home dad. Since then, while he raises his two kids, he’s been entertaining us with witty post-it note messages he writes to remind himself what to do and what not to do when raising a child. The notes will make you chuckle, they’ll make you smile and most of all, they’ll make anyone who knows what it’s like to raise a child groan in agreement.

Find more of Illuminati’s hilarious notes at Message With a Bottle.

The baby laughing alone in the back of the car at nothing in particular goes from adorable to creepy after a couple miles

walked two miles with baby in the stroller yesterday: first mile was casual walk through the park and second mile was retracing our steps to find his shoe

Kid is sick. got me out of a 3am black friday trip the wife was planning. owe him huge. wonder if he accepts checks or cheerios

the baby can pull himself up in the crib. shit just got real

i like watching the baby when he watches something for the first time

if you run out of nursery rhymes the theme from 'Fresh Prince of Bel-Air' works well

Medium = vomit. Canvas = both shoulders

Open the hngar.. vrrmmmm... good right? wait... Don't sneeze! Explosion on the runway. Dad's face was a casualty.

the baby loved the snow until I handed him the shovel. he understood after i explained why people have children.

after i say anything to the 3-year-old, good or bad, i take one step back. for my own safety

telemarketer called and asked to speak to the person wh oruns the house so i handed the phone to the 3-year-old.

i don't buy a toy thinking about how much the kid will like paying with it. I buy it based on how much it will hurt when i eventually step on it in the dark

over the weekend i became an uncle. guess i should get my brother-in-law a ox of post-its for Christmas
