Interim Habits

Do your habits tend to fall apart on your vacations?

That might seem strange, given all the extra time you have available.

But your daily behaviors are anchored to your regular routine.

So, when your usual routine goes away, your anchors and habits will, too.

Imagine, for instance, that you usually work out after leaving the office.

When the anchor moment of leaving the office disappears, so will your exercise habit.

It doesn’t matter how much extra time you have to do something if you keep forgetting to do it.

So, if you have habits that you’d like to maintain during your vacation, ask yourself:

Where will these habits fit into my vacation routine?

Create interim habits with temporary anchors that you can use until your regular routine is back.

If you do that, you’ll be way more likely to keep your habits going.
