Did you set any goals at the beginning of the year? Have you managed to make good progress towards them? In this blog, I’m going to give you some suggestions on how set positive habits and stay on track if you’re struggling.
🗓 Start a #100DayProject
This is a perfect choice if one of your goals for 2021 was to be more creative. The idea is simple: choose a creative project, do it every day for 100 days, and share your process online. If you want to find out more, watch the Q&A video. Draw a picture every day, write a poem, take a photo… the choice is yours. Further information can be found on the 100DayProject website.
This year’s #100DayProject begins on Sunday 31st January 2021.
📋 WOOP My Life
This is a process in which you can set a wish, set a specific outcome connected to that wish, identify obstacles and create a plan of how you will overcome obstacles.
If this method of adding a little more structure behind your goals and having a strategy to overcome obstacles appeals to you, you will find resources on the WOOP practice page. There, you will find an interactive section to make your WOOP online. If you prefer to WOOP offline, download (and print) the WOOP kit. You may want to WOOP on the go, in which case download the WOOP app.
📔 Discover a strategy that works best for you
Author Gretchen Ruben has a list of strategies that will help you set habit in a way which is most effective for you. The strategies are grouped by her ‘four tendencies’. You can take a quiz for free via the link on the page. This will help you find the strategy which works best for you. For example, if you are reluctant to do a task, the ‘strategy of pairing’ means linking the task you don’t want to do with something you’re enthusiastic about doing.
📲 Track habits on your smartphone
Timecap allows you track habits based on the amount of time you spend on them, number of times you do them or simple check-off.
HabitShare is a good choice if having an ‘accountability buddy’ will motivate you to achieve your goals.
Confetti allows you to track your progress towards good habits as well as how often you indulge in bad habits you’re trying to avoid.
Guardians: Unite the Realms turns habit tracking into a game. The element of having to inspire the creatures in the game will motivate you to complete real-world goals.
All of these apps are available for both Andorid devices and iPhones.
