The thing about streaks is that it allows you to commit to something, that you have been longing to do.
Every day is a push initially to complete it.
The streak continues and eventually you do it long enough to make it into a habit.

Technically, this should have been the first challenge because it all starts from here! Not necessarily 5.30 AM, it could be in that range whatever suits you, but this has been the best decision I made around 9 months back – it was the start of the domino effect.
It is a difficult habit to implement during the initial days, but when it becomes a habit, it’s the best thing in the world!
• I get the extra start to the day, which I wouldn’t before when I would wake up at 7/8/9
• It allows me to do more tasks in the morning and by the time I’d usually start my day, I’m done with most of the important stuff already!
• The peacefulness and the calmness around provides that extra boost, that alone time is the best when the whole world is sleeping and there’s simply no disturbance around.
• My day is more disciplined when I’m awake at the time I’m supposed to be and the whole day goes as planned! And, it’s a complete opposite scenario even there’s an hour or two delay and everything else thus gets affected – creating chaos in the mind!
If there’s a habit to start with, my first suggestion would be this one!
