New habits are hard to create. There are many ways to introduce a new habit: one of the most interesting ones is habit glueing, where you coopt the existence of an already formed habit and glue, or concatenate in succession, the new one.
For example, one might choose to always play ten minutes of piano after cleaning teeth.
- Dependance on the strenght of the concatenated habit.
- The start of the glued habit must require a minimal effort inversion, so that structural bariers don’t interfere with habit building.
- I’m not sure if the proportion of effort plays a role here. For example, are habits with similar perceived time consumptions easier to glue together? For example: is it the same glueing a 5 minute activity with another 5 minute new habit (5vs5) versus gluing it with a new habit that takes 30 minutes (5vs30)?
