I understand of course the broader meaning of making healthy habits and actually enjoying the new challenges, not just focus on the bright green check mark in the to-do list.
Buuuut during the making process of new habits, everything which helps me to do it, It's so important and keeping the streak is the number one.
Especially for me, It's helping me not give up so easily. I am super competitive and seeing me going up at the Fellowship board or getting some other bonus points makes me happy (can't wait for the leaderboard feature:)).
Also the feeling after losing the streak is the worst, I am not talking about 200WaD cuz its still just one week so I would probably survive that haha but for example when I had a long streak going in Duolingo and I missed the day (without streak freeze) I was so mad and wanted to throw my phone away and never ever open that app again.
But maybe it's just me.
WOW, I feel the first crisis is coming it's still just my 8-day of the streak and I am struggling to fill the 200 words. Will see what about tomorrow. :)
Stay tuned. Efran.
