🔁 Routines and Habits

🔁 Routines and Habits

A routine is a set of things you do the same way every time because they've worked out for you.

  • for example, you set an alarm for 6:00 every night because that's when you want to wake up

imagine routines as being executed by a smart planner.

  • slow and analytical
  • the planner is aware of the future

Routines can turn into habits 

  • a habit feels like you are on autopilot
  • habits are started by triggers. triggers can be time or complex scenarios

imagine habits as a toddler

  • for the toddler, the future doesn't exist
  • it responds to your immediate desires
  • can lead to bad habits

💡 Both are important

💡 Both are important

You need routines as much as habits.

You need routines for big thoughts and for example your taxes, but it would be too tiring to do every action as a routine, so habits help us consume less energy.

🤔 How to build a habit

🤔 How to build a habit

  • Focus on small things
  • Convince your brain that its not that hard, by making routines, and turning them into habits
  • Break down your goal into small actions. So small it's manageable and so specific that you don't have to think about it a lot

👕 Always start in the context

👕 Always start in the context

If you want to work out after waking up. Always start doing your action in a certain context.

for example: always exercise in training clothes, in the same place at the same time.

Doing a workout will still take energy, but the decision to do it will feel less like a chore and more like a part of your day.

🎶 Try to make your new action pleasurable

Not necessarily by rewarding yourself at the end, but by making it more enjoyable while doing it.

For example: listen to your favorite podcast when you work out.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

samz905

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Jamyson Haug
