Building good habits like establishing an exercise routine, reading every day, or drinking enough water take a lot of focus and motivation.

You might have found that once youve gone a few days without your good habit, you lose enthusiasm to continue. 80% of New Years resolutions fail but the second week of February.1 It is a wide spread, and common problem.Buildinggood habits like establishing an exercise routine, reading every day, or drinking enough water take a lot of focus and motivation. At times, it can be easy to forget to continue your good habit once you started. Some days you might lack the motivation to even try. You might have found that once youve gone a few days without your good habit, you lose enthusiasm to continue. 80% of New Years resolutions fail but the second week of February.1 It is a wide spread, and common problem.

What we need, then, is a way to easily keep track of our good habits. For example, if someone wanted to run for twenty minutes a day, it could be useful to have something to help them plan their day around it, or keep track of the days they have succeeded in running for twenty minutes.

The app Productive has been designed with this is in mind. Effective use of the app could make maintaining good habits easier, and fun, thanks to the numerous ways the app helps you. Lets take a look at how Productive helps you build the habit youve always wanted.

1. Plan your day

What makes the app so useful is that it encourages you to break down when exactly you want to engage in your good habit. It gives you the chance to decide and separate your positive habits into morning and afternoon habits, which gives you the needed push to ensure you do them.

When I started meditation I noticed that when I chose a specific time in advance to meditate, I was far more likely to follow through with my plans and actually meditate when compared to times I didnt have a particular time in mind. This app ensures you wont make the same mistake I did.

2. Focus on your habits

The app is very clearly organised by habit, unlike other ways of scheduling, where your habit might be easily lost or drowned out by other options. Displaying things in a simple, and clear manner makes your habit a clear goal to be achieved.

3. Establish a routine

4. Sustain motivation.
