Bite Sized Habit - Land your habit in the real world​​

Habits are formed through context dependent repetition. In other words, if you do something at the same time in the same context (time of day/place) each day, it can become a habit. The ‘context’ can be any cue, for example, an event (‘when I get to work’) or a time of day (‘after breakfast’). Over 100 studies have supported that people who explicitly state when and where their new behaviours are going to happen are much more likely to stick to their goals. You can do this today by specifying when and where you are going to perform your habit this week. It makes it up to 90% more likely that you will carry it out!
