How to Cultivate Good Habits
  1. Joint creation: Discuss and set good habits together.

  2. Repeat for at least three weeks: Decide on a new behaviour or way of thinking, make it part of daily life and repeat.

  3. Raise motivation: Think of positive images (eg better body) that will come with good habits like eating fewer snacks.

  4. Support network: Tell people who support you of the good habits you want to follow, so they can reinforce you when you do things and encourage you not to stop.

  5. Reduce difficulty: If you want to make a big change, start with easier steps so the habits take root, and then gradually take on more.

  6. Create convenience: Leave sports shoes and gear near the door to make it more convenient to go and work out for example.

  7. Connect existing behaviours: If the new habit you want is eating fruit for example, do it right after meals so it becomes routine to increase the chance of success.

  8. Record achievements: Each record is motivation and shows progress on the way to success at developing good habits.

  9. Reward and encouragement: New habits need some form of incentive like enjoying a good sweat, better sleep and waking up refreshed from doing sports.

  10. Return to routine: It is no big deal if a routine is broken; just get back to it as soon as possible.
