Any habit can be broken down into a feedback loop that involves four steps:
- Cue: is that thing (mainly visual) that reminds you about the thing you are about to do.
- Craving: Then you wanted (thinking) to do that thing.
- Response: You do that thing.
- Reward: You get a reward after completing that thing.
- If the cycle is completed successfully then you have created a habit to do that particular thing.
