Waking up earlier
  • Early morning hours are prime for productivity: early risers tend to have a higher level of cognition and the ability to solve complex problems.
  • The morning is the time when your willpower is at an all-time high: when we wake up, our willpower is still high because we’ve used less of it. As the day goes on, our willpower is depleted.

The power of Keystone Habits

Charles Duhigg, author of "The Power of Habit ," calls these "keystone habits." They are habits that automatically lead to multiple positive behaviors and positive effects in your life. For example, regular exercise often goes hand-in-hand with better eating habits.

Making Your Habits Stick

To make any habit stick in the long-term (keystone or not), do it regularly. 

The more often you do the habit, the more you'll get used to it, and eventually, you'll do it without thinking—the definition of a habit.

“Keystone” Habits

The primary keystone habit is regular exercise. People who exercise habitually start changing other unrelated patterns in their lives, even unknowingly. They eat better, use their credit card less, are more productive at work and more patient.

Food journaling is another keystone habit. Just write down everything you eat, every day.
