Easy to celebrate
Below is what Stephen emailed BJ Fogg. . .
Hi, I'm listening to your ebook and loving it.
Just realised a few things about myself:
- Pushups after peeing is great and all but tricky to work into an office job without doing it out in front of everyone. Doing it against a bench is the key for me! The floor is a long way away but a bench or wall takes almost no effort to start - thank you!
- I realised that pushups are pretty easy to celebrate, because I have just done something that makes me feel good.
- The bonus for me is that finishing the pushups and congratulating myself is in itself the best prompt I have yet found for another habits I want: drinking water! This is one that has always eluded me so I am excited to find something that seems to work.
- Additionally getting prompted and acting on it is in itself a great opportunity for celebration. I got a little rush from finally, easily remembering to do something that I usually forget!
