Science has it that HABITS are acquired while we are born with character. Habits come in virtues and vices. Habits can either hurt and destroy or heal and build life.

“A habit is something you can do without thinking – which is why most of us have so many of them.” Frank A. Clark

Though habits are adopted, we unconsciously adopt habits through life experiences. We also unconsciously adapt to our environment and choose the best coping strategy available. We also tend to allow habits to become part of us. But they simply do not define us. What we most often need to do is find out if our habits causes us harm, stagnate our growth or derail us from our dreams.

Does it add to our life or actually takes us off course? Finding these honest answers helps with knowing which habits needs to be shed.

The old adage “Bad habits are like a comfortable bed, easy to get into, but hard to get out of,” should remind us that, once we do away with habits that do not work for us, we open ourselves to whole new possibilities. We become a whole new person. We feel free and realise we have taken away so much load. Shedding bad habits require strong will-power and mind but very achievable.

We should be mindful that a bad habit is very addictive likewise a good habit. It is up to us to make the good habits part of our being whilst doing away with the bad habits.
