Trying to find something to help me build better habits was exhausting, but then it happened!
I can’t recall how I first heard about Fabulous, but I remember seeing it in the app store and reading the bit about helping people develop positive habits and I knew I needed something like that in life. I was already on the search for something to motivate me to be the best me I could be.
The Fabulous Daily Motivator app will assist you during this journey using baby steps and scientific methods.
Launched in 2014, the app was developed on principals of behavioral economics at Duke University’s Center for Advanced Hindsight, overseen by behavior change scientist and New York Times best-selling author Dan Ariely. It’s presently used by millions of people, with over 175,000 enthusiastic reviews on Apple Store and Google Play.
In fewer than 15 minutes and using the science of behavior change, Fabulous starts small and help you build lasting habits to achieve your goals.
My goal was simple. I wanted to start a new habit and consistently keep up with it. Even though I had never meditated prior to using Fabulous, I wanted to pick up something different and now it is a part of my daily routine. I actually look forward to it at the end of a hard day. It’s been so helpful in clearing my mind and keeping me relaxed and soothed before I go to sleep.
One of my proudest accomplishments is the book that I read in 7 days. I can’t even begin to explain the amount of books that I have purchased over the years, but have never read. I’ve always found some excuses to do something else, which sucked. I had all these books, and I never touched even one. So when I completed this part of my journey, I was so proud of myself. I couldn’t wait to do it again, and so I did, again, and again, and again!
One of my biggest challenges is sticking to my daily habits while on vacation. Fortunately, vacations only happen once a year for me. That being said, I have decided that I will just adjust my habits/rituals to fit my vacation and adjust them back when I return for my next vacation next year.
The app has helped me become so focused, committed, and conscious of my surroundings. Even when I’ve gotten off track, it finds a way to pull me back in and get me going. I have always heard that you can do anything if you put your mind to it. Fabulous has proven this to me and it’s an awesome feeling of accomplishment!
