One of the easiest and most effective ways to change your behavior is to measure it.
Research shows that merely asking people to track what they do immediately improves their performance in that area.
For instance, studies show that people who use pedometers will increase their physical activity by 27% and walk at least one extra mile per day on average1.
What gets measured tends to improve.
So, whenever you want to make a habit stick, it’s a good practice to measure it.
You can track your progress digitally in an app or physically on a calendar.
What’s important is that you turn your daily efforts into useful data.
