Habits are formed overtime. Habits are pretty difficult to form though..it usually takes weeks or months of repetition..To be successful in building a habit,one needs motivation.
Micro habits are small ,simple actions that requires little motivation.It can help you build a larger goal habit.
Flossing a single tooth before bed is a micro habit one can develop.The good thing is once you start even if its just a tiny start,you may often think of going a little bit further until you get to the end.
The implication is you will add more and more to your micro habit by flossing more than one tooth overtime.You will slowly transform the micro habit into goal habit.
It takes less mental effort to commit to a micro habit than to commit to a goal habit.
