The reason we built Ailuna is to help people build lasting new habits. Not to try a new thing every day - which might be fun, but doesn't drive change.
We know from experience, backed by science, that for a new habit to stick, it's important to:
- Keep doing the same new thing for a period of time. Not just a couple of days
- Not try to do too many new things at the same time
How long does it take to build a new habit?
It varies from habit to habit, from person to person. For many people it's a month. For some it's less, for others it's more.
That's why we built most actions as three stages:
Stage 1 is a week, Stage 2 is another week, and Stage 3 is two weeks. In total one month.
Each new habit is a personal commitment to change. Our actions are fun but require a bit of effort to complete.
That's why only two Stage 1s can be done at the same time!
