    5 Steps to Build a Habit, Based on Science

    The book “How to Change,” provides research-backed steps that can set you on a path to help you build a habit. The first step is to set a specific goal that is defined in a way to turns it into a habit. Research has shown that goals that are too abstract are less likely to turn into habits. So, instead of saying something like “I will meditate regularly”, say I will “meditate for 15 minutes each day.”

    Step two is to create a detailed, cue-based plan which comes after you establish a specific goal. Scientists have proven that more progress can be made toward a goal if you are cued to do it. An example is to say “Every workday after my last meeting, I’ll spend 30 minutes studying Spanish in my office” Establishing a location and a cue is key for developing the habit.

    The third is to make it fun and then repeat. Research has shown you can achieve more and persist longer if you find more ways to make your pursuit fun. When looking at exercise, it could mean joining a class with a friend or learning a new sport like rock climbing. Step 4 is to foster flexibility because it is very easy for a lot of people to fall into perfectly consistent routines. The last step is to find the right kind of social support.
