Self-monitoring & establishing new habits

Post by ladybird30 » Fri Jan 03, 2020 6:26 am

From ... ons-128816 -

`“Vigilant monitoring” appears to be the most effective strategy for tackling strong habits. This is where people actively monitor their goals and regulate their behaviours in response to different situations. A meta-analysis of 100 studies found that self-monitoring was the best of 26 different tactics used to promote healthy eating and exercise activities.'

It hasn't escaped my attention that one of our most successful members is also one the most keen on tracking & journalling.
