…tacking habits is probably the most useful technique I’ve discovered for building brand new habits. Stacking habits means using an existing habit (even one you didn’t purposely build, like waking up, having a shower, or brushing your teeth) to act as a trigger for your new habit.
I use a notebook to keep daily, weekly, and monthly to do lists. At the top of each daily list I write down the habit I’m working on. When I’ve completed my habit for the day, I cross it out. This is a helpful reminder throughout the day, whenever I look at my notebook, that I need to complete my habit if I haven’t already.
