One way to incorporate your Pique knowledge into your routine? Repeat your favorite activities!
Why repeat activities in Pique?
The forgetting curve shows us that if you don’t make attempts to retain information by returning to it or applying it to your life, you’re more likely to forget it. Your brain remembers information by making numerous connection points with it. The more connections, the longer you’re likely to remember something.
Simply put, you have to practice what you’ve learned more than once to make it stick.
If you’ve ever done one day of a new writing habit, exercise routine, or eating an appropriate amount of vegetables in a day, you know this. Keeping with a routine is the tricky part. And if you fall off a habit, there are rarely gentle prompts to return besides your desk, stationary bike, or wilted spinach mocking you.
That’s why we created Repeatables.
After completing an experience, like our Time Smart experience on Tech Habits, you’ll unlock the “repeatable” version of it. After a quick reminder on the topic, the repeatable jumps right into the activity. For our Tech Habits experience, this means immediately scheduling some tech-free time and setting your intention for how you’ll spend it. All the good stuff, right away, whenever you want to repeat it.
With Repeatables, those insights that tickled your brain so much can stay top-of-mind. You’ll apply them to your life again and again, allowing you to continue to establish the research-backed habits of your dreams.
And if you forget?
If your routine falls off, as many of ours do when life gets busy and complicated, we’ll periodically remind you to come back and repeat the exercises that you haven’t done in a while. In fact, even if you continue returning, we’ll remind you. If you have notifications turned on, we’ll send a reminder when it’s time for you to take a spin through the activity again.
This way, you can continue to apply this science long after you first hear about it in the original experience.
That’s smarter reading and smarter living.
