Strengthening Your Habits

Just wanted to write a quick note about habits. Last night I was thinking about how most times when we eat something we know is unhealthy or skip a workout, we only think about the consequence of that particular instance. It isn’t the end of the world, right?

In reality though, the bigger impact is that we are strengthening that negative habit. That one time won’t matter THAT much, but it is making that bad behavior stronger and more likely to happen again.

Luckily, the reverse is also true. When you make a healthy choice or go extra hard at the gym, aside from that one instance being good for you, you are strengthening that habit. I think about this when making decisions and it really helps motivate me to make the right choice.
