Ever wonder why you fall into habits you don’t want to, and can’t change the ones you do want to?
“Your brain is lazy. It doesn’t know the difference between a good habit and a bad habit. It just takes everything you repeatedly think, say or do, and turns it into a habit so it doesn’t have to work so hard.” - Anne Grady
Wow! Think about that! “everything you repeatedly think, say or do…” Really? I don’t know about you, but I spend a lot of time thinking, saying and doing things that I do not need turned into habits. Then what does it take to change the habit? I can only assume, repeatedly thinking, saying and doing, something different or the opposite.
The human brain is incredibly powerful, part of that power is making things easy on itself when performing routine and repetitive tasks. It is also powerful enough to overcome the habits, but we have to train it to do so. It takes work and intentional decision making.
What are you repeatedly thinking, saying or doing? Are those things that you want to see become habits next month?
