t’s a fact. Human beings like habits. We do things, repeatedly. Every day. Over and over again. Because we’re used to it. It makes us feel good; it gives us a sense of comfort and control. We have hundreds of habits that help us through the day and that bring a kind of structure into our lives. A lot of these habits we’re not even aware of. On an automatic pilot we keep on repeating certain compulsive behaviour, often being rewarded by an instant gratification. When we take a closer look, we often see that these habits are not serving us really nor contributing to our wellbeing and happiness. Although it may give us a sense of pleasure on the short term, the long-term effects can be self-destructive one way or another. It becomes really tricky...
