Do you scroll through your phone as soon as you wake up in the morning? Do you make time to exercise every day? Is a morning coffee a non-negotiable for you? These are all habits – some you might hate, some you might love – but none of them happened overnight.
To put it simply, habits are thoughts or actions that are repeated enough times that they become automatic.
While some habits can be detrimental, such as wasting an hour on social media when you’re meant to be working, others can be great for your welfare. Learning to brush your teeth when you’re young helps you have good dental health when you’re older. Another example is turning lights off when you leave a room. That habit saves cost on your energy bill, and it probably stops family disputes too!
Now that you’ve signed up to this program (good work!), creating some of the desired changes you want in your life will involve building new and breaking old habits. But don’t worry, we aren’t leaving it all up to you – this module will help you get there!
