Atomic Habits is a self-help book that offers a practical and scientific approach to habit formation. The book is written by James Clear, a writer, speaker, and expert on habit formation, who draws on his own experiences and the latest research to provide readers with a step-by-step guide to creating lasting change.

At the heart of the book is the concept of atomic habits, which are small, incremental changes that build up over time to produce significant improvements in our lives. Clear argues that rather than focusing on big, dramatic changes, we should instead focus on making small changes that are easy to implement and maintain.

The book is divided into several sections, each of which focuses on a different aspect of habit formation. Clear explores the importance of environment, motivation, identity, and routine in shaping our habits, and provides practical advice on how to design cues, rewards, and systems that support the development of positive habits and the breaking of bad ones.

Throughout the book, Clear uses real-life examples and anecdotes to illustrate his points, and includes a variety of tools and exercises to help readers put the principles of atomic habits into practice. Whether you’re looking to develop new habits, break old ones, or simply improve your overall well-being, Atomic Habits is a must-read for anyone interested in the science of behavior change.


Do you find yourself constantly struggling to stick to new habits or break old ones? Do you feel like you’re always starting over, but never really making any progress? If so, you’re not alone. In fact, research shows that up to 90% of our daily actions are habits, which means that the key to making lasting changes in our lives lies in changing our habits.

In this book, we’ll explore the concept of atomic habits – small, consistent changes that can have a big impact on our lives. We’ll look at how habits work, how to create new habits, and how to break old ones. We’ll also examine the role of identity in habit formation and how to use it to your advantage.
