Fortnightly Update: Habit Groups & How Long Habits Take To Form

James Whelton

Conjure Founder

Hello everyone from a rainy Cork, Ireland.

Let's get straight into the updates, and then a brief note on how long it takes to form habits.

Introducing Habit Groups

Habit groups are now available on both web and mobile. Habit Groups allow you to organize your habits into groups and hide them when not in use.

Some examples of Habit Groups are:

  • Morning Routine
  • Bedtime Routine
  • Workday
  • Exercise

You can create and manage Habit Groups on both web and mobile. You can use keyboard navigation with Habit Groups on the day view (press the space or enter key when focused to show or hide).

Read the docs to get started.

Mobile App Improvements

  • You can now archive and unarchive Habits on mobile
  • You can now reorder Habits on mobile
  • You can manage Habit Groups on mobile

How Long Habits Take To Form

Someone asked me during the week, how long does it take a habit to form?

A regularly cited study from University College London examined the new habits of 96 people over 12 weeks.

The researchers found it takes on average 2 months, or more precisely 66 days, for a habit to become automatic.

However, the full range of time it takes to form a new habit can be anywhere from 18 days to 254 days. This highlights the importance of sustainability and consistency in performing the habit.

They also found that "missing one opportunity to perform the behavior did not materially affect the habit formation process".

When building a habit, afford yourself some flexibility, focus on sustainability and consistency, and factor "off-days" into your plans. Habit "Emergency Modes" can be helpful for this. You can read more about this in the Conjure guide to Habit Completion Types.

Until Next Time

As always, all feedback is greatly appreciated. If you have anything on your feature wishlist, please just let me know!
