Getting Started in Better Habits
Every great journey starts with a single step… and the process of personal development is nothing short of a great journey.
Getting started in Better Habits is as simple as choosing something you would like to focus on. Try to choose something that you can focus on daily rather than a set goal in the future. Think ‘running’ not ‘run a race’.
Tap the ‘+’ button to add a habit.
If you want to record the action multiple times per day, you just tap the action button every time you perform the habit and it will fill up like a pie.
As you perform actions day after day, you will start to notice changes in the way your habit looks. These are your statistics ‘growing’ as you progress. Probably the most obvious one is the progress bar.
You will notice your progress growing as you perform, easy right? Not so fast, when you stop performing, it shrinks. “Say what?!” Yep, this is what we call ‘Living Progress’, it’s designed to model the way real habit formation works. Forgiving, but not easy.
So can you actually form a new habit using an app? Better Habits can sure help, but ultimately, that is up to you. It’s not easy to form a new habit or to change an old one. It takes motivation, encouragement along the way, and most of all, persistence. Change is hard, Better Habits can help, and I for one, believe in you.
