With the New Year quickly approaching (less than a month away!!) I decided it would be a good time to find a new tool for establishing healthy habits – out with the bad and in with the good! That takes us to Rootein (pronounced “routine”), a service that allows you to create and track tasks, or Rooteins. The premise behind Rootein is that it takes 21 days for something to become a habit so, hopefully, after using Rootein for about a month you’ll begin to effortlessly perform these tasks, thus forming a healthy habit.
After you sign up for a free account you just need to enter in a Rootein – anything from running 2 miles every day to remembering to call your mom.
You can create as many Rooteins as you’d like and then simply select the one that you’ve done and mark the date on the calendar. Every time you perform one of your Rooteins just check in and then continue on with your day. You can create reminders so that you never forget to, say, water your plants.
