In case folks are into reading/hearing books -> there are two books on habits and how to deal with them well.

Charles Duhigg on "The power of habit" and "Triggers" by Marshall Goldsmith. I'm working on breaking some habits and these two books seemed insightful and decent enough (:

I really enjoyed The Power of Habit. The main way it influenced how I do things is the idea of setting myself up for small wins from the start, and how that plays into process.

If a process is cumbersome, or you have to go out of your way to do something, then it's a lot more likely to get ignored, but (for example) if you sleep in your running clothes, you're a lot more likely to go running in the morning.
