What are Micro Habits?

Micro habits break down change into small and easy things to do and make the task at hand feel less overwhelming. Whether it’s trying to achieve your toning goals, eat healthier, or even be more productive, the power of building micro habits into your routine is that it allows you to kickstart achievable change. Once it becomes part of your routine, you will be doing it without even thinking about it.

Why do Micro Habits work?

  • Helps to overcome resistance: the larger the change, often the more difficult it is to approach as we don’t know where to start. Micro habits help to break down the challenge into a step-by-step roadmap to success.
  • The power of momentum: as you keep up your new habits, it creates a momentum, and you will find your efforts escalating into something larger.
  • Positive Domino Effect: When you change one behaviour, it will activate a chain reaction and cause a shift in related behaviours. Ultimately, with one healthy habit comes another.

“Changes that seem small and unimportant at first will compound into remarkable results if you’re willing to stick with them.”

James Clear, Atomic Habits

How to build Micro Habits into your routine

BJ Fogg is a social scientist that believes healthy habits need a trigger or prompt. This is a proven approach to building long-lasting habits by taking an existing habit and attaching your new habit to it. For example, your typical routine might be that after you have your breakfast, you tidy the kitchen. Why not add in your micro habit here? This might be: “After I’ve had my breakfast, I will pop on my Slendertone as I tidy the kitchen.” Before you know it, you will be doing a 30-minute ab workout each day!
