Habits are immensely powerful. You know that already. My own system continuously changes as my world and I continuously evolves. Actions express priorities.
Many have asked what my system looks like so here is a snapshot. Hope it helps you in creating your own system:
Last Update: 2019-05

Morning 10min Cardio (Daily). Mainly bodyweight or stretching
Time restricted eating (Daily). 10 hour feeding window incl. coffee and 8 hour feeding window for foods
Blu-ray glasses at night (Daily). Allows melatonin build up for better sleep
