The Competition Between Good and Bad Habits
“Habit” is defined as “A recurrent, often unconscious pattern of behavior that is acquired through frequent repetition.”
Good habits and bad habits compete with each other, and often the process of changing habits has been invisible to us. We have felt the effects of bad habits without realizing that we have a great deal of control over them.
It is said that “Bad habits are like a comfortable bed . . . easy to get into, but hard to get out of.”
The first step toward changing habits is to be fully aware of what they are. Write down your good and bad habits. Think about which ones you’d like to keep and which ones you’d like to change.
How have you changed habits in the past? What strategies have worked for you? Which habits, if changed, would have the most positive effect on your life?
