Are We Really Creatures Of Habit

Do you understand that we are really a creature of our own habits from birth to death?

To begin with, we are creatures. We are creatures. We’re smart and attractive, but let’s not forget that we’re still composed of flesh and blood. Our brains, in particular, are extremely complicated developed devices. Our brains control basic functions like breathing and eating, as well as allowing us to appreciate the subtleties of John Cleese’s performances in Fawlty Towers.

Habits are strong

We have requirements as animals. We eat because we have to. We prefer to talk to one another since we are clever and sociable creatures. We take turns and graciously end our chats. There are dozens, if not hundreds, more behaviour that is just as intricate. What are our plans for completing all of this? This is when habits come into play. Habits assist us in getting through the day. We are not as interested in a task when we are doing something that is not habitual. Consider making breakfast in your kitchen on any given weekday as an example. Watch how easily it happens the next time you do it. It’s not quite the same as being out of the body, but its close. Your movements in the kitchen are predictable.

You take the milk from the fridge, walk over to the counter, and nudge the door open with your foot, as you know it requires it. If you’re thinking about something, you might not realise you’re sitting at the table eating your second piece of toast until it’s halfway gone. Consider the experience of having breakfast at a friend’s house. Perhaps your dog sitting (you’re such a sweetheart!). What happened to the milk? What about the bread? Oh, my gosh, it’s so difficult!

That’s how strong a habit can be. You don’t just have one. You don’t even have a dozen, to begin with. There are dozens, if not hundreds, of them in your possession. Thank God for routines! But here’s the rub: you’re not fond of all of your habits. Some of them are extremely unappealing to your decent self. You’d prefer not to be constantly munching cheese-doodles.

Breaking the harmful habits

You decide to break your harmful habits. You’re serious about it. You succeed on occasion, but you fail frequently. What is the reason for this? It’s not because you’re a jerk. You’re probably not a bad person, and even if you were, that wouldn’t explain your failure. You’re failing because changing behaviours is really difficult. They’re difficult to modify since they’re so deeply established, almost automatic. What good would it be to have a habit that didn’t allow you to think about more important things, like the definition of the infield fly rule? But don’t give up hope. It is possible to alter your habits.

Following rules and routines

Humans are beings who follow a set of rules and routines. We create behaviours and habits that will stay with us for the rest of our lives, just as it takes us 20 years or more to form our adult personalities. However, changing a behaviour or habit is not easy or quick. Involuntary activities governed by the subconscious mind are referred to as habits. How much of our behaviour is automatic? According to neurobiologists, cognitive psychologists, and others, habit accounts for 40 to 95 per cent of human behaviour, including how we think, what we say, and how we act overall. Nothing resembling a human or even animal form of life would be possible without habits. You need habits like ours to have a mind like ours.

The skeletal structure of life as we know it is made up of thought and action habits. Habits will always deal with our life. Cattle, it turns out, are also “creatures of habit.” A daily regimen provides them with comfort. As a result, at the feed yard, we have a very strict daily feeding plan.
