To form a new habit, try coupling a desired new behavior with a usual behavior. To change habits, develop your awareness of your daily routines. James Clear promotes taking continuous, small steps toward forming habits that will eventually take the place of undesired ones. Frequent repetition automates behaviors and turns them into habits. Rewards and incentives, such as enjoyable activities, can nurture the effort of instilling good habits. Your individual identity aligns with habitual behavior. Clear recommends refining that behavior continually to achieve lasting change.
