Habits can be great. They can motivate us to keep up with a gym routine, allow us to employ a new personal hygiene regimen, or keep us on track with our work assignments. In many ways habits are actually necessary in our lives and provide our days with a fluid rhythm.
Unfortunately, human nature can also cause us to develop negative habits. Over time these negative habits become addictions that we can’t live without because they provide us with some sort of short-term reward or satisfaction. Understanding why you indulge in negative habits or addictions will help you to break away from these actions and become a better you.
