What is a “Habit”?

Hey everyone! I hope you are having a nice week so far!

Over the weekend we talked about making “One Tiny Itty Bitty Change” to help your long-term health goal. Mine was using Stevia in my coffee instead of sugar. At first this was a huge change because I’ve been using sugar in my coffee for 20+ years. After a couple of days it became much easier so now I am on my way to breaking one habit and building a new.

Tonight I want to talk about the word “habit” and what it means. There are a lot of definitions but my favorite is: A habit is something we do without even thinking about it. It is our usual manner of behavior, or a behavior pattern acquired by frequent repetition. (Joyce Meyer).

Basically a habit can be anything we do regularly, normally, whether intentional or not, and good or bad. (*See more definitions below)

Name one habit that you would like to develop (or improve). I would like to walk more.

What would be a good (small) way you could start developing this habit. I could start walking laps around my yard while dinner is cooking on a couple of nights a week.
