To start a new habit, clearly define the place and time.
The key to creating new habits is to be as specific as possible by making everything clear and not leaving room for thinking. Including the definition of the place, time, and what exactly will be performed is crucial.
- Set clear intentions about where and when you will take action.
Create a sentence in the following form, “When situation X arises, I will perform response Y.” For example:
- I will meditate for one minute at 7 a.m. in my kitchen.
- I will study Spanish for twenty minutes at 6 p.m. in my bedroom.
- Use the Habit Stacking method to perform a set of actions in one flow.
The general formula is, “After [a habit] I will do [another habit].” For example:
- After I pour my cup of coffee each morning, I will meditate for one minute.
- After I take off my work shoes, I will immediately change into my workout clothes.
