If you're working to cement new habits but having a hard time, it could have less to do with the habits themselves and more to do with how they're arranged. Try looking at each from a perspective of the habit loop -- cue, routine, reward -- and find opportunities to rearrange them so the reward -- or tangential result -- from one helps to create the cue for the next.
I'll admit, though, from time to time I've worried that like many things I should be doing differently -- work-life balance, downward dogs, leaning -- I may be doing morning wrong, not living up to my Morning Potential. Am I really supposed to do all of the morning steps those articles recommend? In the same morning?
