Certain habits have a more significant impact than others when altered or added to one’s regular routines. These are called keystone habits, and once you change them, they have a cascading effect.
For example, when people start exercising, even something as simple as walking has a cascading effect. Exercise alone is beneficial, but it usually causes people to reflect on other habits like eating. Typically, when someone starts exercising, they tend to eat better. The reward? Better health.
Other examples of keystone habits would be the time that you go to bed. By going to bed earlier, the cascading effect could be eating better since you don’t need to snack for energy because you are better rested, and it may cause you to leave earlier for work. Altering one habit may change a couple of others
Another example would be your bathroom time. Rather than bringing your phone while you are doing your “duty,” bring a personal development book. Read a few pages every time you go. The new information will cause you to alter other habits.
These are a few examples. Take the time to identify one keystone habit and work on that. Then, try to see what other habits are altered because of it.
