Many people fail to make a habit stick because it’s difficult to change many behaviours all at once. The solution to this is to create a few keystone habits that will have ripple effect into your life.
For instance, if you find it challenging to keep a diet and sleep earlier than your usual hours, try working out for 10-15 minutes a day. That’s it. The sole action of exercising regularly will give you the momentum to increase the intensity of your workout. In turn, you’ll want more rests and nutritious food because your body crave them. Instead of fighting against your impulses to stick to your routine, you pick a strategy that make you fly against the wind so you can soar.
Compared to trying to change a few habits at the same time, it’s easier for you to focus on one keystone habit to adapt or change.
