Habit! A word study

Saturday, March 02, 2013

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
Noun : an acquired behavior pattern regularly followed until it has become almost involuntary: the habit of looking both ways before crossing the street.

Verb: to clothe; array emoticon

Wouldn’t it be awesome if my healthy lifestyle habits became as much a way of life as wearing clothes?

Psychology: a learned behavioral response that has become associated with a particular situation, especially one frequently repeated emoticon

I can learn to love water! I can learn to practice healthy habits.....
........Mental disposition or attitude: and, I can have a great attitude about it.

Habit Verb: (old English), To Dwell, Inhabit, indwell. emoticon
The love I have for God, family, friends, is something that always lives within me (indwells). It’s always there, I don’t have to think about it, and I don’t hesitate several times a day and ask myself if I still have that love within me.

So, why don’t I just drink the water emoticon
Track the food emoticon
Do the exercise emoticon
And consistently make healthy choices? emoticon emoticon emoticon

The answer of course, is because; those things haven’t become habits, YET.

The unhealthy habit I DO have, is not following through with the healthy habits from challenge to challenge.

I didn’t do well with the water drinking in week one. Water is the first healthy habit I formed when I joined Spark People on December 2o, 2009. I gave up soda cold turkey and started drinking water. I still don't drink soda, but I don't drink water either.

I did it once, I can do it again. emoticon
My healthy habit to blog about for this week is drinking water.

Have a great day everyone! I look forward to reading about your healthy habits too.
