So I’ve realised that if I wanted to make any lasting changes in my life I need to sort out all the little things that need to be done and need to be stopped on a day to day basis.
So I got this app on iOS called “Productive”, so far the results have been amazing. I’m really happy I’m getting off to a good start. I’ve got the basic habits I wanted to track… getting all my prayers done, Reading, Being Thankful, Making sure I keep in contact with family… The app makes it easy by making things time-bound, reminding you when you need it and also it feels really good to tick things off as you do them… as I said, it works.
So how does habit tracking work? Here’s the benefits…
- It creates a visual cue that can remind you to act.
- It motivates you to see your progress. You don’t want to break your streak.
- Very satisfying to click that button
inthe moment knowing you accomplished something no matter how small.
All in all I recommend starting… I’ve already over the course of a couple of days added a few other habits to the list either daily or weekly that I need to accomplish that I otherwise would never “find time” to do. Life will continue to get better a little by little insha’Allah.
