Habits are behaviors that are formed through regular repetition in all stages of life. They result from the choices we make in our daily lives. Habits are important because they govern what we do, how we do it, our way of learning and how we live by ourselves, in the family, in the community and in the world. Habits can be good or bad. Bad habits have consequences to you and those around you but they can be unlearned.
Good habits will take you where you want to go and lead you to success. They can be purposefully learned. This module explains what habits are and how they are formed.
