According to Wikipedia, “a habit …is a routine of behavior that is repeated regularly and tends to occur subconsciously.”

We built most of our habits without thinking much about the process. Often we are not even aware that so many of our actions are habits.

Some of them were drummed into us by society like brushing your teeth in the morning or showering daily.

Others we built by ourselves because we enjoyed doing certain things, like reading the newspaper after waking up or doing sports after a hard work day.

In both cases, the key to building new habits is consistency. A study by the University College London showed in 2009 that we need an average of 66 days for forming new habits.

This is why tracking your habits is the best way to establish new behaviors in your life. The more often you do something, the less willpower is required to do this very thing.

Habits are the compound interest of self-improvement. The same way that money multiplies through compound interest, the effects of your habits multiply as you repeat them.
