Habit Creep: The Proven, Reasonable and Totally Unsexy Way to Become More Successful | James Clear

This is great. I’ve kind of plateaued at the moment. Last year, after tracking everything and realising there seemed to be a correlation between running and migraines, I stopped running. This forced me, just after moving house, to start new routines. Now, I go to the gym or swimming pretty much every day at 11:30am. I eat kale, I use protein supplements. When I’m in London, instead of doing no exercise for two days, I’ve found swimming pool.

Small tweaks can lead to big dividends. The trick is to avoid plateauing, as I seem to have done. How can you kick it up a notch? Extra lengths in the pool, heavier weights, and longer on the rowing machines would be the obvious answers. But what about standing more instead of sitting? Eating less sugar at the weekends? Improving my morning routine?
