Have you tried to use various habit creating tools before?
for example to make the chain?, or to create routines as games?
to beat the streak ?
Do a thing frequently to make it a habit. Or you could waste time making insane charts and notecards.
You need a simple painless way of tracking your progress.
You can try this simple widget which I made for myself because I wanted to use simplest way to track - Just 1-Click procedure!
It' a simplified habit tracker to keep motivation up. And it allows to track only ONE HABIT. Studies shows that you should focus only on ONE HABIT A TIME to develop it fully and successfully.
I've been developing this widget for 24 months, and have it as is now still with updates coming to fine tune it to maximum.
How to use this widget for Habit building?
1. Put the widget on home screen to see it all time. It has only 1 habit to track this way you are not losing your focus. As tracking several habits is not working as studies showed.
2. Tracking is rewarding every time- the Widget got only 1 button to click after task, and it is clickable directly on Home Screen so no wasting of time consuming menu popups! This motivates to continue and keeps momentum going.
3. Quick status of the Habit progress – the widget has a shape of charging battery showing visually charge level and has semaphore lights indicators and always shows essential statistics numbers.
4. Reward is show after repetition is done. Again this motivates to continue and keeps good momentum!
5. Punishment or bad consequences are shown if repetition was not done, this motivates to finish habit!
[NB. The motivation principle for this tool was inspired by Neuro Linguistic Programming(NLP). NLP describes how to use influence strategy to make the habit easy to wire into the brain!]
