Finding your Keystone Habit – Why they Make or Break your Day

May 14, 20162 min read

Some habits are simply more important than others. Finding your Keystone Habit sets you up for success everyday.

Ever notice how some days flow beautifully? It seems like you are set up for success.

  • eating foods that make you feel good

  • smiling lots

  • time to exercise

  • time to think

What made this day flow so beautifully? Was it a random convergence of great choices or was it triggered by one simple thing you did when you started your day?

“Keystone habits, like the similar architectural term “keystone,” help to hold the other good habits in place. In architecture, the keystone is the centermost stone that supports all other stones in an arch but bears the least weight.” R.L. Adams

A Keystone Habit is a routine or behaviour that creates a chain reaction with other habits and behaviours that naturally align our day.

Keystone Habits do three things:

  1. Lead to other good habits and choices.

  2. Support other small victories.

  3. Give you confidence and energy to do more.

There are many proven keystone habits that improve productivity and health, these include;

Healthy Eating

Daily exercise
Positive Thinking
Plan Your Day the Night Before
Having Daily Routines
Eating Healthier

This likely sounds really familiar to everyone in the Daily Essentials Community you can see why we focus so much attention on these. One of these is likely your game-changer. It’s that key for you to wake up and have that awesome day, everyday.

Finding Your Keystone Habit Requires

Awareness – just notice when things go right or wrong and what was the change in your routine on this day.

Experimenting – try setting goals the night before, try waking up and moving, try getting to sleep earlier.

What one habit fuels a series of better choices for you? (eg. when I get to bed early – I get up earlier, drink my water, move and meditate and make my green smoothie which makes my whole day feel more energized)

The great news with this is you don’t have to change dozens of habits to start living healthier. We start to see big changes when we focus on this one keystone habit and then everything else falls into place.

What is your keystone habit – share in the comments below? What one thing do you do each day that either makes or breaks the day for you?
