  1. It’s been shown that habits get in the way of a conscious choice. We often operate on habits from what we do in the morning, to getting to work, and even rituals at night. Sometimes these habits can be at the root of dysfunction or non-wellbeing. In this case it’s important to emphasize the importance of being aware. If we practice being aware of what we are doing, preferably non-judgmentally, then we can pick up on those habits that are not working for us, and at that time, make a choice to change.

      Be well.
