Pone step further: Create your own daily hashtags as a system for developing healthy habits. Your hashtags (whether you actually post them or not) morph into a way of thinking, a daily ideal that you strive for, rather than a strict game plan. In the end, as you develop these habits, you’ll develop a varied and effective approach to help you reach your goals. Some suggestions to get you started:

Hundreds of thousands of Twitter users are believed to be affected today as the social network went down due to technical problems. Many of Twitter's 304 million users who tried to access the site were met with an illustration of a broken robot and the message: "Something is technically wrong.
