Jonnys advice: start with something simple you’d like to change about yourself. Try to identify the keystone habit.  Jonny’s blog

Pennie’s – choose something really simple to do, and aim for an unbroken streak of 21 days – and don’t give up, the only failure here is to give up trying. Once you program something into your autonomous system (being naturally compelled to do something), don’t ignore the compulsion as it can set you back.  Pennie’s Blog

Ruth – think of things that fit into your routine so you aren’t trying to change too much and give yourself a chance to succeed. Ruth’s blog
