Use the 5-Second Rule to Create Healthy Habits

I started listening to a book on Audible, titled “The 5-Second Rule,” by Mel Robbins, per my dad’s recommendation. I listen to it when I work out, walk, or am just relaxing at the end of a long day. You can use the 5-second rule to create healthy habits and live the life you’ve always dreamed of!

How to Use the 5-Second Rule to Create Healthy Habits

If you struggle to motivate yourself to do the small things, like wake up on time, go to the gym, make an important call, etc, then this rule is for you! It definitely was and is something I have started using daily to push myself to do the small things that I just don’t want to do! In her book, “The 5-Second Rule,” Mel Robbins says that motivation is a lie. You may never be motivated to clean the house or go to the gym, but you have to 5-4-3-2-1 it. You count down and then, BOOM, you go and do it, without overthinking it. This process of counting down distracts you from talking yourself out of what you don’t want to do.

Mel Robbins discusses how her job and marriage were going down the toilet and how this rule transformed her life. One morning, instead of hitting snooze, she counted down in her head from 5 and got out of bed. Since that day, her life has never been the same. It restored her marriage and her career.
