Whenever you are trying to build a habit, you say to yourself that u will meditate everyday which is abstract.

2. Create a detailed, cue-based plan

Scientists have proven that you’ll make more progress toward your goal if you decide not just what you’ll do, but when you’ll be cued to do it, as well as where you’ll do it and how you’ll get there.

Make your habit more detailed for example:-

"i have to hit the gym everyday 5 days a week" instead say "i will hit the gym after my last meeting, every 5 days a week".

For example:- if you are going for Zumba classes try going with a friend.

4. Foster flexibility

Successful habit building relies on frequently repeating a behaviour, and if your routine becomes too brittle, you’ll follow through less often. A flexible habit means you can still do what you need to even when a wrench is thrown in your first best plans – say, a traffic jam on the way to dropping the kids off at school that gets in the way of your morning meditation.

5. Find the right kind of social support

This idea is mostly overlooked, but it is crucial to have some people around you who help you achieve your habits and your goals.

 Joining a running club than asking a few friends who aren’t yet in the habit of jogging to get in shape with you. People in the running club have already built the habits you want. You can learn from them about what works and gain friends who will make you feel like a slouch when you slack off.

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

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

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.

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!

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.

Giovanna Scalzone

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!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
