Changing behaviors, however, isn’t always as easy as just deciding to do something new. It takes a systematic approach to change behaviors that make good sense from a scientific perspective.

Atomic Habits is a comprehensive guide that covers every area of personal change. The principles presented in this guide use scientific findings to explain why certain habits are more difficult to change than others. You can easily apply the principles to your own behavior and it will help you identify new habits you’d like to add. The book includes over one hundred pages of content with helpful exercises to get you started on your journey to permanent behavior change.

Atomic Habits addresses both long-term and short-term changes to improve behavior. You can make positive changes quickly and easily. The book includes tips to reduce stress, manage your work schedule, and increase your energy levels. You might reduce unhealthy food choices or learn a new recreational activity. The underlying motive for bad habits may be related to the desire to avoid pain. When you’re motivated by something positive, it’s easier to avoid doing it.

You can also change bad habits easily and quickly by identifying the triggers associated with them. A trigger is anything that gives you an incentive to engage in a behavior. You might find a good habit when you have no other choice. With the help of the atomic habit loop, you can link good habits with appropriate triggers.

To change your habits, you need to associate a specific cue with the behavior. The cues come in many forms. They could be a visual cue such as a smile, a nod, a beckoning gesture, or a spoken cue like “Good morning.” Some people use smells as a cue. Others might use a combination of visual and verbal cues. It all depends on how you perceive the world around you and how you want to be treated.

To change habits, you have to understand the relationship between the urge and the cue. You must realize when you’re primed to indulge in behavior and when it would be more beneficial to switch to a different one. James Clear uses a process called reification to identify this connection. He describes it as the process by which “we become prepared to do things that are not our normal habits.” Once you have mastered this technique, you will replace your old habits with new atomic habits.
