New Year, New Decade, New Me!
So according to this science-backed article, it seems that "on average, it takes more than 2 months before a new behavior becomes automatic — 66 days to be exact. And how long it takes a new habit to form can vary widely depending on the behavior, the person, and the circumstances."
66 days can feel like a long time when you're leaving bad habits behind, and working towards building new ones. So to help you achieve level up your habit game I curated a list of my favorite habit-building tools that I know will help you crush your 2020 habit goals!

13. Streaks App
I'm a visual person and so I found this habit tracking app to be the best of the bunch. It's very easy to use and can track a variety of things. It also integrates with the iOS Health app so it can automatically track your steps, heart rate, and the number of miles run. Orange is also a favorite color so thumbs up to this!
So what is a Vision Board?
A vision board is a visualization tool that refers to a board of any sort used to build a collage of words and pictures that represent your goals and dreams. By placing visual representations of your goals into one space, you can easily visualize them frequently. Remembering to look at them daily and imagine them as if they have already come true is one of the best ways to activate the Law of Attraction.
If you need help making a vision board, you can always attend a workshop, like the one above :)
