The chains of habit are generally too small to be felt until they are too strong to be broken.
building good habits…
Cultivate only the habits that you are willing should master you.
I have a lot of habits, and not all of them good, but the most of them are keepers. There is a lot to be said for keeping a routine. It can improve overall health, well being and productivity along with more time to relax and less anxiety.
A routine is something that you do over and over agin, eventually making it a habit. Once it is a habit, you don’t need to think about it in order to act. They are often perceived as bad things but they are necessary to organize life and keep it from becoming to chaotic.
If you have a good routine set up, you’ve freed yourself from a lot of small decisions that could slow you down and waste time you could use for something else.
For example when our parents taught us to bathe and brush our teeth, they helped us to establish morning or nighttime routines. After that it became a habit that most of us do every day. We don’t have to think about, we just do it. It’s a habit.
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.
