Habits how to:
Put your stick somewhere handyNow 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.
Tick tick tick!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).
Party like it's 1999Now 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!
It's science, silly.
A lot of hours have been spent (not by us, mind you) trying to understand the science of habits; what makes them stick and what effect good habits can have. We’ve done the heavy lifting for you with these two articles so feel free to take a deep dive.
