What Are Habits?

What are Habits?
Are you aware of how many habits you actually have? Probably not because a habit is something that is performed in your subconscious. It is only when you are trying to form or break a habit that you become aware of your actions. Habits can be seen as both good and bad things. This will depend on how they are affecting your life.
Some of the habits you already have included all your daily routines such as:
• Getting dressed
• Taking a shower
• Brushing your teeth
• Knowing exactly how to get to and from work
• Washing the dishes
• Doing the laundry
• Making your bed after getting dressed…and the list goes on
You don’t even have to think about these things as your mind has become accustomed to your routine. Can you imagine the effort needed to actively remember how to do each step of those chores? You would end up completely exhausted at the end of every day.
Problems arise when you are trying to form a new habit. You may want to lose 10 pounds, or you wish that your kitchen counters would be less cluttered. Both of these take time and effort to change. To keep those counters clear you would need to form a habit of finding homes for those items. This might include filing your bills, getting the kids to not leave their homework there. Or having everyone put their dishes into the dishwasher each night. To learn more: www.TransformationalLifeCoaching.com.au
