How can Habit Stacking help me save time?

Habit stacking is a productivity technique where you link a new habit to an existing one. It creates a chain of actions that can be performed with less effort over time. This technique can help you save time by streamlining your routine and reducing decision fatigue.

For example, if you want to start reading more, you could stack the habit of reading a few pages with your morning coffee or before bed. Also, if you wish to exercise more, you could stack a short workout routine with your morning shower or after work.

When you link new habits to existing ones, you can take advantage of the momentum already created by your existing routine. It makes sticking to your new habits easier. Over time, these small habits can add up to considerable time savings and increased productivity.

Habit stacking also helps to reduce decision fatigue by removing the need to constantly make choices about what to do next. Instead, you simply follow your established routine, freeing up mental energy for more critical tasks.

Habit stacking is a fantastic tool that can help you save time, boost productivity, and achieve your goals more efficiently.

Rather than panic and hysteria (OK, maybe a little) Mike found himself carried away on the adventure of his life. Mike started with the best job he ever had working at Home Depot. He spent 8 years working with job seekers at a local workforce center, helping them to find employment. He then started his own company developing courses, writing books and urging others to follow their own paths into the future. Mike holds a Master of Arts in Adult Education and Training and a Bachelor of Business Management, earned through the University of Phoenix and an AAS degree in Electronics Systems Technology from the Community College of the Air Force.
