My Experience of “Atomic Habits” by James Clear

My Experience of “Atomic Habits” by James Clear

Hello Friends! Today, I want to share my recent discovery that has really made a positive difference in my life. It all started when I wrote a blog post titled “Moving Your Body”. Where I explored the idea of incorporating regular physical activity into your daily routine.

I shared my struggle to make the same routine a regular habit with my husband. Who suggested that I read James Clear’s book “Atomic Habits” carefully. “Atomic Habits” by James Clear is a very popular self-help book that came out in 2018. It is being loved for its smart insights into habits and how to form good habits while eliminating bad habits.

Initially, I didn’t think much about it, but on his persistent recommendation, I decided to give it a try. To be honest, my enthusiasm was not sky-high in the beginning. However, as soon as I started turning the pages, something clicked and my interest in the book grew with each passing chapter.

In fact, we are all the same. Most of us probably find it very difficult to get out of our comfort zone. And to form any good habit, it becomes even more difficult to get out of that comfort zone and do it with regularity. Same was happening with me too. Then on my husband’s insistence, I studied this book and understood it. This book is really very helpful. We all must read it. Today, through this small blog of mine, I present the summary of this book to all of you.

Summary “Atomic Habits” by James Clear

“Atomic Habits” is not just your ordinary self-help book. Rather, it is a guide to all of us that sheds deep light on the science and psychology of our habits. Written in a way that is both engaging and practical. James Clear introduces the concept of “atomic habits”, emphasizing the incredible power of small changes when applied consistently over time. It’s about small changes that can make remarkable changes.

The book begins with the idea that habits are not mere actions but are inextricably linked to our identity. This concept resonated with me as I reflected on my journey toward adopting a daily activity routine. CLEAR breaks down the habit building process into actionable steps, making it accessible to anyone wanting positive change in their life.

One of the main takeaways I found for myself was to focus on making habits clear, engaging, easy, and satisfying. Cleary’s insights into how our environment, attention, and identity play important roles in habit development were eye-opening. He offers practical strategies, such as the “two-minute rule” and the importance of forming habits, that make the habit-forming process seem less daunting.

Let’s understand it in simple language. If we have to form any good habit then it seems very difficult in the beginning. Let us break it here, you have to do that difficult task only for 2 minutes but you have to do it daily. The human brain does not find a task that takes just 2 minutes to be difficult at all. We just have to do this 2 minute routine daily. And in a few days, weeks and months, it becomes very easy to convince our brain that we cannot do it. Moreover, the brain itself gives signals to increase the duration of the same work.
