How to form healthy habits

Why they are so important

“All our life is but a mass of habits”, so said William James, one of America’s first Psychologists. And whilst Psychology has come a long way since William’s day, it’s true that we spend a huge part of our daily  life acting out of habit.

At the same time, we also live in the information age. If we don’t already know what’s good and bad for us, it only takes a few minutes searching around google to find out.

But why don’t we act on what we know?

Because when we are too busy, stressed or overwhelmed it can be difficult to self-regulate our day to day behaviour. That’s why it is important to do the right things naturally, to create and to fall back on, good habits.
