When people adopt habits newly, they tend to practice them once a day. But the secret behind your habit to stay impactful on you is that you must increase the number of times you are doing something.
When you encounter your new habit frequently, it will quickly enter your lifestyle.
You must try to increase the number of repetitions in your habits.
It’s a fact that habits are formed when they are repeated over and over every day. Think about your habits. Aren’t they the things you do so often that sometimes you forget if you are doing them or not?
That’s why you must focus on repeating your habits. With more repetition, you will make it your habit in a short period.

If it’s about exercising, you can break down your exercises into a few minutes of workout sessions and do them every day.
Exercising every day is a great habit. There are various times of the day you can exercise. You can plan according to your schedule. Do it as often as you can.
A research stated that you must repeat a habit a dozen times a day to connect with it.
If you want to have any new habit, try to practice it more than thirteen times. It seems that it will make you mindful and will make it to your everyday routine.

The next few ways will also depend on the number of repetitions you do every day.
You must determine that some of your habits cannot be determined because of their scale.
For example, getting up early is a one-time thing. You can’t sleep and get up early in one day. So mist spends 30 days to repeat this routine.
Another aspect is that you must start small with your big goals. If you want to write a book, then you must start writing small. Start writing 2000 words every day.
If you are not a writer, then it might take you longer to settle it. Don’t worry. You can also start with 200 words. Progress is all that matters. While you improve, you can start writing more and more and slowly write longer paragraphs and pages.
You should be able to calculate the time you take to write. If you can write 200 words in 10 to 20 minutes, then calculate how much you can write in two hours or four hours a day.
By writing every day, you will grasp the speed. Writing will also deal with the mind. You will be capable to write if your mind is working. Let the thoughts flow. Write more at times you feel very motivated.
You must make it a repeatable habit. You might not feel motivated every day to spend 2-4 hours on writing. This can’t be a habit if you write for so long because writing a book is more about creativity.
Try to break it down to fifty or a hundred words. This way, you can do much better on the quality of your writing too.
Because you are trying to make it a habit, start less, and enjoy your new habit. Spending hours together might not create so much impact on your habit as it wouldn’t stay constant.
