Make your new habit something small, something you can do everyday, and something that’s positive (i.e. avoid habits like ‘don’t do xyz’). Then write it on your habit stick!
Now get cosy with your habit stick. Put it somewhere you'll see it at least once a day (e.g. by your tooth brush, on your desk, on the fridge) to keep it top of mind.
Every time you do your fledgling habit tick it off on the stick. Tick's are a micro reward that keep you going. After the first few times it might get harder - but 'stick' at it (ouch that was bad).
Now for the fun bit. Plan something great for when you make your last tick. Whether that's a Game of Thrones marathon or a personalised trophy, do something that you love. You've earned it!
Why habits matter, how long they take to form and how to create habits you can stick to. Like, actually stick to!
If you’re keen to form a new habit, the #1 thing you can do is look for ways to make it EASY! Find out how to get some quick runs on the board.
We all have things we want to be better at, do more of, and accomplish. It can be useful to spend time thinking about the things which are important in our lives, and focus more of our attention to doing them.
Healthy thinking doesn’t mean you have to be Ned Flanders 100% of the time!
