Habit Stacking

“Imagine what life would be like if you began each day with small actions that created a chain reaction of positive benefits throughout your life.”

That’s just what author S.J. Scott suggests in his book, Habit Stacking. The program in simple terms is to create stacks (or groups) of habits to create improvements in your life.  Scott advises that habit stacks, at least initially, should be rather short in duration and generally built around existing things that you do.  As an example for me is my home morning routine…you know get up shower, brush, etc.  I added a daily reading that I had been wanting to consistently do and to weigh myself daily (I need to lose a few pounds).  The stack has been effective as I even do the stack on weekends when I get to sleep in a bit.  I’ve created another stack for when I first get to work.
