How to actually form habits that stick?
1. Make things as easy as possible for yourself
2. Find a way to repeat your behaviours regularly for *at least* 2-3 months. Sometimes it takes more than a year to successfully form a habit.
3. Remember habits don’t necessarily form because of willpower
4. Look to how you can tweak your context to help you repeat the behaviour
