Comment of the Week

“Regarding adoptions of ‘simple wins’ discussed in your Sunday with Sisson letter — I reckon it mostly comes down to habits. It’s hard to establish a new habit. Even an simple one, such as daily push ups takes effort to establish. Also, and here’s what’s often not appreciated, our current habits usually kick in automatically and interfere with the development of a new one. What’s the solution? The most effective way to establish a new habit is to remove yourself from your typical situation. Why? Because our habits are triggered by the cues in our environment. Change the environment, even by moving your morning routine or ritual from one room of your home to another, can remove these powerful triggers and allow you to more easily focus on your new habit.”
