We all have some habit that we can never seen to get rid of. A lot of times we continue to do bad habits and never feel positive about our good habits. TheHabit allows for users to feel positive about themselves through the usage of good habit streaks and keep track of negative habits. Studies have shown that accountability for bad habits makes them easier to overcome, so the app allows for integration with SMS messaging to an emergency contact when the user may break the streak. We believe that by allowing others to help you achieve your goals, and you helping them, people can aspire to change their lives in positive ways.
