Need some tips on how to begin? Here's a straightforward guide!

Step 1: Enter Tasks

Habitica is nothing without real-world goals, so enter a few tasks. You can add more later as you think of them!

Enter tasks you do once or rarely in the To-Dos column, one at a time. You can click the pencil to edit them and add checklists, due dates, and more!

Enter activities you need to do daily or on a particular day of the week in the Dailies column. Click the item's pencil icon to 'edit' the day(s) of the week it will be due. You can also make it due on a repeating basis, for example, every 3 days.

Enter habits you want to establish in the Habits column. You can edit the Habit to change it to just a good habit or a bad habit .

In addition to the in-game Rewards offered, add activities or treats which you want to use as a motivation to the Rewards column. It's important to give yourself a break or allow some indulgence in moderation!

If you need inspiration for which tasks to add, you can look at the wiki's pages on Sample Habits, Sample Dailies, Sample To-Dos, and Sample Rewards.


Step 2: Gain Points by Doing Things in Real Life

Now, start tackling your goals from the list! As you complete tasks and check them off in Habitica, you will gain Experience, which helps you level up, and Gold, which allows you to purchase Rewards. If you fall into bad habits or miss your Dailies, you will lose Health. In that way, the Habitica Experience and Health bars serve as a fun indicator of your progress toward your goals. You'll start seeing your real life improve as your character advances in the game.


Step 3: Customize and Explore Habitica
