Is there a habit you wish you could magically acquire overnight?

I wish early-rising was easier for me....

There are some habits I wish I could magically lose overnight. Same thing I suppose stated in a different way.

I used to read a lot and I don't read as much anymore. I wish I could get back that habit.

It takes 6 weeks (+/-) to loose, acquire or modify a habit.

It would sometimes be easier if I could keep my gob shut.

Keep that gob going. I enjoy your straight-forward comments. It's people who are reluctant to say how they feel who I find somewhat annoying.

I wish I could acquire the habit to sleep through a whole night and not wake and then sleep and then lie awake and sleep again. Any hints anyone?

I am also working on my gob. Oh, the horrible things that have slipped off my tongue.

Anajo - 20 minutes a night before you go to bed!

Gumtree - alcohol.

The good old fashioned glass of warm milk is a proven sedative. Heat releases tryptophan the amino acid with the sedative qualities.
