Cues and rewards
I have unfortunately fallen out of my daily morning writing habit, and I'm trying desperately to bring it back. I'm reading The Power of Habit, and learning that cues and rewards sustain habits. Not sure what my cue for writing would be, but I am pretty awful with the rewards. I've been so good at depriving myself of pleasure throughout my life and it has always been so natural to me. I could say I am gifted at punishing myself, but don't do so well in the area of rewards. I think I might set up a new writing routine that involves going to a cafe in the morning, since I don't seem to function well at home during the break. Then, my cue would be getting dressed, and I would get out and go to the cafe, the reward could be a treat at the cafe.
