Firstly, know the good habits you want to embed in your life. It’s totally normal at this point to have a number of changes you want to make so rank them. Pick the one that is most important to you. This is your decision alone, you don’t need to justify it to anyone.
Take the time to really understand that number one good habit you are looking to embed in your life. What does it really entail? If you are looking to ‘get fit’ what does that really mean to you? Our previous article on setting simple goals is a good starting point if you need some inspiration, you can read it here. To give you an example, if you are looking to get fit is that to be able to run a certain distance, to lift a certain weight or just for general health and self esteem? They will all have slightly different actions you will need to complete.
This part is so crucial. Do not shoe-horn some time into your already busy calendar here and there to work on your habit. This is absolutely not how you form good habits. In fact, this is the complete opposite of how you form good habits. You must create a regular slot in your calendar that is dedicated to embedding this habit. That time must then be protected. Do not book over it!
It is not a race. Remember that. We said earlier that it takes 21 days + to form good habits. Each day when you get up remind yourself of the positive change you are going to make to your life today. Yes, we all naturally think about what we will do tomorrow, next week or next year. We like to look ahead to when we believe our results will be achieved but don’t forget today. Tomorrow’s achievements come from today’s hard work. That might sound cheesy but it’s true.

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