Decrease. To do more sports. To learn something new. quit smoking Save more money.
These are some of the most popular New Year's resolutions; maybe you've already done some of it yourself.
But while the majority of us make New Year's resolutions, only a minority stick to them. Only 9% of those who make resolutions actually stick with them for more than a few weeks.
If something doesn't work, then throw it away, right? That's why we now forget the good intentions that we don't stick to anyway and take a shortcut for more change in our lives: Habit Stacking.
The building of habits
We fail at our resolutions because it is very difficult to change habits. You may have heard the theory that it takes 21 days to form a new habit. It's not an exact science, though - some do it in time, others take much longer. Actually said a study that the time frame can be from 18 to 254 days long.
So, habit building looks different for everyone. But one thing is clear: the more often you do something, the easier it is for you to continue. Practice makes perfect and so on.
Which brings us back to our original problem: changing habits is hard. But when you pair new habits with existing ones, it becomes a lot easier.
This is how habit stacking works
In habit stacking, you combine a new behavior with an existing one.
For example, you brush your teeth every day. It's always been like this and you don't have to think about it anymore. And because you're brushing your teeth anyway, it's easier for you to get into the habit of doing something new.
For example, if you want to drink more, you could drink a glass of water before or after brushing your teeth. It's not a hassle, it's just another step you add to regular brushing.
The formula for habit stacking is simple:
Before/after (existing habit),
I will (new habit).
Before I shower, I think of three things I'm grateful for.
After breakfast, I prepare a healthy lunch.
Before I get the mail, I take a short walk.
After work I meditate for five minutes.
Habit Stacking is your automated reminder of the things you want to do more often. Over time it will become a habit - and you will benefit with a minimum of effort.
