Morning fellow early to risers! Hope your day is off to a great start. I actually woke up around 5:30 but I admit I chose to stay in bed and catch up on Facebook instead of using my extra time wisely. But I finally got out of bed and got my day started at 5:54, which is 6 minutes earlier than my goal.

The topic of today's reading: How long does it take to build a habit? Different sources suggest different times. The shortest is 30 days, but others suggest that it may take longer. Regarding this Early to Rise Challenge from my experience, it will take longer than thirty days for me to build the habit of rising early. Maybe habit building differs from person to person or varies by habit. How long does it take you to build a habit? To work on building my habits, I signed up for Lifetick, and more recently Lift. These are websites that allow you to check in daily on habits that you want to build, such as making the bed, eating breakfast, etc. Lift was not available to android or online users when I first started this program, but now that it is available, I prefer it over Lifetick. Lift is a quick way to track habits and see tangible evidence of habit building. They send you a daily report on how you're doing. As of today, I have made my bed for 30 consecutive days. Go me!! If you want to try Lift, send me a message with your name and email address. I still have a few referrals left and I can send those out. Hopefully, it will be available as an Android app soon and not just online.

Today I am listening to the Pine Forge Academy Choir to get me ready for the day. How Can I Keep From Singing is one of my faves. The video below is of another choir, sung just as beautifully. What do you listen to in the mornings to get you ready for a powerful day? Make it a great day, y'all.

I'd love to try Lift. I think I'll use it for my Bible Reading.
