Don’t Break the Chain

Keep track of how many days in a row you’ve successfully followed your habit.As your chain gets longer and longer, you become increasingly committed to the habit.

Pros:

  • Maintains habits over a longer timeframe than a 30-day trial.
  • Better for things you already do (or are easy to do).
  • The longer your chain, the more serious your commitment

Cons:

  • Accidental slip-ups or situations where your habit becomes impossible can collapse your motivation.
  • Many habits don’t work on an easy daily or weekly interval.
