Create new habits with simple small steps.
Keeping habits simple and repeatable means they are more likely to become an automatic part of your day. Complicated strategies and plans that are difficult to navigate will lead to failure.
Make it easy on yourself. Make sure you have the tools or other things necessary to facilitate easy, simple actions, that require little thought or effort. Remember, to stop a bad habit, you must replace it with a new one. Small, simple, repeatable steps make this new habit more likely to take hold.

What is it? How can you break it down into simpler steps that you can do each day?
