Getting Started

After you finish Justin the Guide's Tour and delete the sample tasks, you can begin your Habitica adventure in three simple steps.

Step 1: Enter Tasks

First, enter a few tasks. You can add more later as you think of them.

1a. Set up To-Dos
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!
1b. Set up Dailies
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.
1c. Set up Habits
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 (-).
1d. Set up Rewards
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!

Bonus: If you need inspiration on which tasks to add, see the Sample Habits, Sample Dailies, Sample To-Dos, and Sample Rewards pages.

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

Once you're familiar with the basics, you can get even more out of Habitica with these nifty features:

Release Pets & Mounts!


The Keys to the Kennels have returned! Now, when you collect all 90 standard pets or mounts, you can release them for 4 Gems, letting you collect them all over again! If you want a real challenge, you can attain the elusive Triad Bingo by filling your stable with all of both, then set them all free at once at no cost!

Scroll to the bottom of the Market to purchase a Key. It takes effect immediately on purchase, so say your goodbyes first!
