Does it really take 21 days to form a habit?

I can't believe it's November already! With the holidays quickly approaching and stress levels rising, I thought it would be a good idea to tackle our 2021 resolutions a little early.

After doing some research, it's definitely possible to form a simple habit such as drinking more water or going on a 10 min walk every morning. Harder habits will take a longer time to create.

Starting Thursday, 11/5/2020, we will have 21 days until Thanksgiving. Since we did incredibly well with WALK-TOBER and had great feedback, why not set a small, realistic goal for November?
