The number one thing we can do when we're trying to form a new habit, is look for ways to make it easy. Our Habit Sticks campaign was all about helping people get started, and 'stick' with it!
Make your new habit something small, something you can do everyday, and something that’s positive (i.e. an action you'd like to take), then write it on your Habit Stick.
Put your Habit Stick tick somewhere you'll see it at least once a day (e.g. with your toothbrush, on your desk, by your kettle) to keep it top of mind.
When you do your habit, add a tick to your Stick (ah, poetry). Monitoring habits can really help. After the first few times it might get harder but keep at it... you've got this!
When you add that last tick reward yourself with something fun, whether it's a Netflix marathon or something that supports your new habit. You've earned it!
