⚡️ Habit Stacking

To: Society Members

Good Morning!

It would be rude not to share a testimonial from one of our coaching clients, Avleen from Winnipeg:

I’m getting way more work done than before. I think I have done more work in the past two weeks than in the last two months. So far I feel your sessions have been a great investment! Thank you so much! ❤️ I can let you know ahead of time that I will be continuing my sessions, as I do look forward to them and I surely need them to get back on track.

Habit Stacking Defined

Remember implementation intention? Well, habit stacking is a special form of that. Instead of pairing your new habit with a time and location, you pair it with an already established habit. Basically, your established habit acts as a cue for your new, desired habit.

Here’s how it works: After [CURRENT HABIT], I will [NEW HABIT].

And some of my favorite examples:

  • After brewing my coffee, I will drink a tall glass of water.

  • After exercising, I will practice 5 minutes of breathing techniques.

  • After getting into bed, I will say 3 things I’m grateful for that day.

  • After eating breakfast, I will read 5 pages of a book.

Why It Works

Habit Stacking

Habit stacking provides your new, desired habit with an obvious cue. Whether you have 2 or 10 things you want to accomplish in a day, it can be easy for them to slip your mind or to push them ‘till tomorrow.

Adding a new habit into your already-ingrained habit cycle makes it more likely that you’ll stick to the new habit. Basically, you’re taking advantage of the solid foundation you’ve already built for your other daily ritual.

Have you ever noticed that once you’re up and being productive, it’s easier to continue than to take a break and return to work afterwards? That’s the natural momentum that habit stacking takes advantage of.

How To Implement It

Here is how you can get started today:

1. Choose a new habit you want to implement (meditating).

2. Choose a well-established habit to stack it on to (exercising).

Formula: “After [exercising], I will [meditate].”

Since you’ve already ingrained exercise into your daily routine, remembering to meditate will come easy now that they go hand-in-hand, without increasing your cognitive load.

Once you’ve ingrained a new stack, you can start stacking a few or even several habits together to create the ultimate morning and nighttime routines.

As a note, it’s still important to ensure that your new habit is realistic. Just because you stack meditation onto your well-established workout routine, it doesn’t mean that you’ll magically start to meditate for 30 minutes. Start slow.

Honibe: Honey For Your Health

What better way to share Honibe’s pure honey products than to stack them onto this newsletter?

Honey is one of nature’s best-kept healing secrets, so if you haven’t already ingrained it into your diet, this is your cue to start. We’ll make it easy for you by highlighting Honibe’s best sellers below:

Adult Multivitamin + Immune: They contain Echinacea which is used in traditional medicine to help relieve cold symptoms. It also contains zinc, vitamin C, and vitamin A which all aid in maintaining a healthy immune system.

Melatonin Gummie Bees: They help reduce the time it takes to fall asleep and also increase your total sleep time. Cmon, there is no excuse for a bad night’s sleep anymore.

And of course, some stack ideas:

  • After brewing my coffee, I will take my Honibe Adult Multivitamin.

  • After brushing my teeth before bed, I will take a Melatonin Gummie Bee.

Start stackin’.
