3 min

When was the last time you did something that made you truly happy? It could be as simple as taking a walk outside or spending time with friends and family. These positive activities help us to build positive habits and lead happier healthier lives. Habits are one of the most important aspects of our lives. They help us make decisions every single day so that we stick to our routines. And when bad habits enter our lives, it can be really hard to break them and create new ones that are healthier for us.

However, it’s not impossible at all! Even though it takes time and conscious effort, we can all start building strong positive habits in our daily lives again. Here is everything you need to know about creating good habits that have a domino effect on your life…

What is a habit?

Habits are actions that we perform without thinking. They result from repetition, and they are nearly impossible to alter once formed. Habits are formed when a certain behavior or action becomes automatic and unnecessary to the person acting. For example, you might check your email daily to see if there is any new communication. You don’t need to check your email daily; you just do it automatically. So, checking your email is a habit.

Why are habits so important?

Habits are one of the most important things we can do to build our lives.

They are the things that keep us going every single day, allowing us to accomplish even more than we could if we were constantly focused on the present. When we have good habits, we have a strong foundation on which to build future habits and have a better quality of life. Having healthy habits in place shows that we care about ourselves and our impact on the world.

It shows us that we are willing to put effort into improving our lives and don’t want to stay stuck in a rut. Good habits allow us to feel more confident in ourselves and our abilities, which leads to better relationships and an increased sense of self-worth.

How can you replace bad habits with good ones?

One of the first steps to building healthy habits is to get rid of the bad ones. When we have a clean slate to start fresh, we are more likely to try new things and not be afraid of failure. It’s important to focus on replacing negative habits with positive ones. This doesn’t mean copying someone else’s routine but thinking about how you want to be. What do you want to be when you grow up? What are your dreams, your aspirations?

Once you know, you know better what you want to build. Start small. Make a promise to yourself that you won’t attempt to build a habit that is too big all at once.

You can always attempt something smaller. Start with one small thing you want to be more mindful of in your life, such as exercising daily. As you get more comfortable, you can build on these habits and add more things to your daily routine.

How to build good habits

Start small. For most people, building good habits can seem too big to achieve. Before attempting to build a large number of habits, start with a few smaller ones that you are willing to invest more time in. This will help you to get used to the process and build a more manageable habit. Create a routine that works for you, and you are willing to stick to it for a while.

This could be waking up an hour earlier each day so that you have time to de-stress and focus on other positive habits, switching your work habits so that you have more time to spend on other things, not starting your day with a new positive habit as a reminder that you are going to be a happier person.

Focus on the long term. It’s easy to get caught up in the daily hustle and forget about the big picture. When you are focused on the long term, you are less likely to make impulsive decisions that could damage your habits. This is important when building positive habits because lasting building habits usually take a lot of effort. It’s much easier to waste your time impulsively choosing a path of destruction.

Take advantage of tools. There are various tools that can help you build good habits, such as apps and software that help you build your routine. This can take a lot of the pressure off of you and allow you to build habits that are more important to you. It can also help you to track your progress and keep you motivated when you are stuck in a rut.


Building healthy habits takes time and effort, but it is possible with little effort. Start small and focus on building one positive habit every day until it becomes a part of your daily routine. When you focus on the long term instead of the short term, you will greatly improve your lifestyle. Now you can build healthy habits that will last a lifetime with the help of the domino effect!
