Need to change some habits? Moving homes may help, scientists say

Moving Homes or relocating to a new city? This is your “window of opportunity” to start a new habit and most important to keep it.

Want to start a new habit? Some scientists are saying try starting over in your new home!!

When a major change occurs in your life like getting a new job, finding new love, or moving into a new home, some of our routines can suddenly change or even disappear altogether. Such times are ideal for creating new and better habits!

Consider a study of people who wanted to change their eating habits and go on a diet, 36 percent of those who were successful had recently moved to a new home. Now that is a high percentage!
Another study found that students who wanted to start exercising more were much more likely to succeed if they had recently enrolled at a new university.

Moving Homes? Window of opportunity to start new habits.

The results suggest that there is a definite ‘window of opportunity’ after a big life change for someone to change their behavior. In one study, the team found the ‘window’ lasted three months.

Research has also found that the health of the marriage and divorce can largely impact eating and exercise habits. Divorced men, for example, often gain weight; conversely, women tend to gain weight after marriage.

So why do major life changes make it easier to adopt new bad/good habits?

During a major change in life the unknowns make people generally more open to new ideas and information. Life transitions such as moving into a new home presents an amazing opportunity to influence your habits.
A fresh start on life and makes it easier to create new routines.
