The power of Habit

If you guys haven’t read the power of habit then I suggest you do. It is a great book for understanding how habits form our day to day life to the point that tomorrow can almost be predicted. Habits are something we can break and create.

There is even a general rule for how long it takes our brains to form and break habits and that is 21 days. Do something everyday for 21 days and you will form a habit to the point that it comes naturally. Stop smoking for 21 days and you will have broken the habitual side of the problem.

It is a process where the brain changes a sequence of actions into auto routines. The science also says that it is a way that our brain is trying to save us the effort by making things we do all the time or consistently into an automatic process that involves very little thinking. Here is a link if you’d like to read more about the science of habits.

Anyway, it has been a while so thought I’d get started up writing again so watch this space, lots of new blogs to come!
