What is The Habit Society?
The 5-minute newsletter on how to master your habits, sent to your inbox every Monday. We are a one-stop-shop of research from credible experts to bring people practical information and realistic implementation methods.
Often, we rely on fleeting spurts of motivation to reach our goals—an ineffective strategy. We’ve all been there. We’re constantly bombarded with influencers who seem like they are perfection personified—daily workouts, healthy diets, meditation, reading—basically just radiating success.
But, what we don’t see is what keeps them on track. Our mission is to provide people with the best approach to habit formation to create lasting change. This is where the psychology behind habit change comes in. It doesn’t happen overnight, but it’s easier than you think. You’ll see.
If you want to be somebody who works out, eats healthy, meditates, or anything in between, you can through the power of habit. Let The Habit Society help you get there. It’s self-help, rebranded.
The Habit Society started naturally, except it only had two members. We shared a passion for living happy and healthy lifestyles and optimizing our day. We would separately try to implement habits that we knew were good for us, but nothing would really stick. We decided, “OK. Every time you do X, text me, and every time I do Y, I’ll text you.” So, every morning, we would expect a text from each other while also being pressured to send one back. We were accountability partners. Now, we want to be everyone’s accountability partners.
Why it's important
Our mental and physical health comes down to what we do daily, and there aren’t apparent instructions on what to do and how to do it. Oftentimes, people ‘fail’ to stick to a routine but this is because their methods are flawed and it shouldn’t feel like a personal failure. We want to bridge the gap between desire and results.
How we can help
There are definitely many resources out there, but they haven’t adapted to the nature of human beings today. People want to learn, but they don’t have a lot of time. That’s why we chose this format. It’s conversational, entertaining and builds upon the concepts incrementally as not to be overwhelming.
Reading our newsletter in itself is a habit, and even if all it is for some people is a ritual to get their week in order, that’s a good place to start.
