The Pavlovian theory is a learning procedure that involves pairing a stimulus with a conditioned response. Ivan Pavlov found that objects or events could trigger a conditioned response with his dogs, and you can use the same idea to train yourself into a habit.
Today’s challenge is to find or create a ritual to use right before executing your habit.
If you’re trying to become a morning person, this might mean waking up and performing the same three tasks first thing.
If you’re trying to quit smoking, you might snap a rubber band on your wrist every time you feel the urge to pick up a cigarette.
