♪ being without you is all a big mistake ♪ the hardest thing to take ♪ ♪ i'm addicted to you whether an old flame or that second slice of cheesecake, we all have our own hard habits to break. >> you know how many times i heard yesterday about that cheesecake i ate on air? i heard about it so many times throughout the rest of the day. >> i've got a piece of it waiting in my fridge. >> breaking bad habits is one of the most difficult things for humans to accomplish, because experts say, we're actually wired to fail. but it's not impossible. here's abc's dan harris. >> reporter: eight months ago we rang in the new year right here in times square. do you even remember what your resolutions were? probably not since some research shows 80% of new year's resolutions fail by the second week of february. our efforts to right our wrong habits over. so why is making or breaking habits so hard?
2:49 am
you can blame it on evolution. in order to survive, our brains evolve to focus on immediate issues, like avoiding sabre tooth tigers. evolution only really cared about us creating habits that helped us live long enough to reproduce. it didn't care about whether we were good about forming long-term healthy habits like flossing our teeth. which is why so many of us find it so fiendishly hard to stick with a diet or boot up an exercise or meditation habit. enter james clear, author of the best-selling book "atomic habits: an easy and proven way to build good habits and break bad ones." he describes starting small, using what he calls the two-minute rule. >> you take whatever habit you're trying to build and scale it down to two minutes or less to do. meditate every day for a month becomes meditate for 60 seconds. so easy almost that you can't say no to it. if you don't become the type of person who meditates for 60 seconds, five days a week, you have no chance to be the type of
2:50 am
person who meditates for 40 minutes. >> reporter: we decided to test his advice. jude gant wanted to form an exercise habit. we challenged her to do three situps every day for two weeks. >> just focusing on one thing made it a lot less stressful. >> reporter: while jude wanted to make an exercise habit, i wanted to break a bad habit. the habit that i would like to break is late-night snacking. if forming a new good habit is about making it easy, breaking a bad habit requires making it r mehat meant putting snacks on high shelves, out of sight, out of mind. james also recommended something pretty extreme, a lock box with a timer which would make it impossible for me to get a rice cake after 8:00. another hack, brushing and flossing early. the minty taste he says could reduce late-night cravings. jude and i turned for inspiration to mitch. the so-called micro habits approach helped him lose over 100 pounds. he started by going to the gym
2:51 am
for five minutes every day. >> after about a month i was dying to do ten minutes. i finally let myself do ten minutes. after another two weeks i was dying to do 20 minutes. >> reporter: so how did jude do after a couple of weeks? >> usually starting is the hardest part. so now that i've started something, it will encourage me to stick with it and to build upon it. >> there's this quote by ed latimore. the heaviest weight at the gym is the front door. it's that idea. how can i make it easy to open the front door? >> reporter: while i didn't find the lock box super helpful, the early brushing definitely helped curb my craving. is there a set amount of time it takes to form a habit? >> the honest answer is, forever. habits are not really a finish line to cross. it's a lifestyle to be lived. >> the heaviest weight at the gym is the front door. >> it is. but like we were saying, it's not working out at the gym, it's getting there that's hard. >> right. >> so yeah, that front door.
2:52 am
>> got to get rid of the sweets too. ok i'll admit. i didn't keep my place as clean as i would like 'cuz i'm way too busy. who's got the time to chase around down dirt, dust and hair? so now, i use heavy duty swiffer sweeper and dusters.

2:56 am
>> yeah, i mean, we all love animals of all sorts. and, i mean, of course that then brings up the whole debate over whether we should have zoos, wild animals enclosed like this. but i can imagine that parent thinking, oh, let's just get a great picture, how fun and exciting. then we have the videos of the bison attacking teens or a little girl. people having run-ins with bearthat these are real-life wild animals. >> yeah. >> they are not tame. they are not domesticated. they are wild. >> yes. >> so something to think about. >> definitely. >> yeah. well, a little whiter, a little more fun, and a lot more rewarding. a nebraska man was in an arkansas crater and found a diamond. >> a big diamond? >> a real diamond. >> a diamond. a 2.2-carat diamond. yep, uh-huh. a round diamond, yep. the largest found at the park so far this year.

3:04 am
voters that their first concern should be beating president trump and make the argument that sanders' and warren's ideas might be a bridge too far for some voters. governor john hickenlooper told me after the debate those progressives were playing into trump's hands and just because an idea is bold doesn't mean it's good. former congressman john delaney, who was actually the first candidate to get into the race but has really struggled in the polls, had a good night for himself. he showed an aptitude for tough policy talk. mayor pete buttigieg managed to stay above the fray several times and return the conversations to him versus trump. former vice president joe biden was not mentioned on the debate stage but obviously he'll be front and center on tonight's stage. >> we did see those ideological divides when it came to health care and immigration throughout the debate. it will be interesting to see if we also see that tomorrow night -- tonight. >> a good breakdown from mary alice there. people who had a good night, they're saying bernie sanders,
