Our brain craves for cues to perform certain activities, for example, switching off the night in light is a signal that you should sleep now. And that eventually becomes your routine, which results in a reward that is in a given an example - sleep. Charles Duhigg's in his book power of habit coined it "the habit loop."

So let's say you want to build a habit of working out every day, then think what clues you can leave for yourself that will lead to going to the gym for, for example, sleeping in workout clothes can be a significant clue. In the morning you don't have to think or spend time changing clothes. This might look like a tiny change, but these small changes lead to the remarkable difference Same way, let's say if you are not able to drink enough water throughout the day, then keep a water bottle at your work desk all the time that will be a clue to the brain and eventually results in the routine of drinking water regularly. Remember, Brain craves for the same thing you usually do to change any bad habit you need to take advantage of that only by gradually building good habits. Habits take time to create, and it can sometimes be challenging, but they get created when you remain consistent with the new behavior and make it a routine. Do let me know if it helps Cheers!
