Back to the three components of habits: Cue + Routine + Reward. Now let’s add a craving for the reward that’s tied to the cue.
Want to exercise every morning?
Give yourself a cue by leaving your workout clothes next to the bed (that’s what I do! :) and give yourself a clear reward (mine: the great post work-out buzz mixed with knowing I’m doing what’s best for me!).
We want to get to a point where that cue gets you craving the reward.
Get there and voilà!
You’re rockin’ it.
