Habits Vs. Behavior

What exactly is a habit or behavior? Is it a behavior? Are they the same things? These are some questions you might be wondering like me. But no, habits are repeated actions or decisions that become automatic and are challenging to stop, but behaviors, are your reactions to your surrounding environment when you are socialized with.

While habits are basically something, you repeatedly do for sixty-six days or more that it becomes subconscious to where it’s automatic and become an unnoticed daily routine. Doing something over and over again is a great way to create muscle memory, which is why habits are somewhat mastery of a craft, skill, or act.

As for behaviors, it’s the way you react to a situation you are put in. That means your nervous and endocrine system trigger before you do whatever you are going to do in that situation. It may be voluntary or involuntary.

Habits happen subconsciously, and behaviors are conscious as you are assessing your environment before you react. Habits are also inputs of your environments which is why it’s hard to quit bad habits as they are probably another person doing it with you or yourself encouraging to do, while behaviors are your outputs on your environment by the way you react to a situation you are in.

Building Great Habits

Habits are an excellent way to shape you into the person you want to be. Building great habits are tough to build as it takes more than two months before a new behavior turns into a habit as it depends on the person, the behavior, and the circumstances.

According to a Duke University study, 40% of our behaviors on any given day are habits. Understanding how to harness the power of habits, how your current ones work and how to build new ones that will help you accomplish your dreams and goals is essential for improving your health, happiness, and life in general.

The simplest way to build great habits that will help you become a better person is by you assessing who you are and who you want to become in the future.

1. Make It Easy That You Can’t Say No.

Start with an incredibly small habit. If you don't start with something little, you will find yourself wishing you had more willpower or more motivation after a few weeks. So keep it easy so you can stay consistent with it.

Willpower like motivation will slowly fade away throughout the day, so be sure to build up your willpower. Instead of starting with 100 crunches every hour, start with 50 crunches every day. Keep it simple and easy where you can get it done without willpower or motivation.

2. Build Up The Habit By 1% and Break It Into Segments

Improving something by just 1% every day adds up pretty quickly as does declining by one percent. Your willpower and motivation will also increase, making it easy to stick to the good ones. Within a few months, you will find yourself needing to do 700 crunches a day.

So make sure to break it down into segments. That way the habit can stay reasonable to accomplish and if it gets too big stop going up by 1% and stay at a point where you can maintain the momentum, and you can still benefit from the habit.

3. Have a cue to not lose momentum

Set up premeditating triggers and rewards, whether its an alarm or initiating your habit right after a specific event or daily based activity. Instead of saying im going to lose weight today say at 1:37 pm today im going to do 50 crunches and reward myself with a piece of candy or whatever you prefer.

That will help stimulate your brain to believe that when you do crunches, you receive your favorite piece of candy. Even top performers get off track and lose momentum like everybody else. The only difference is that they don’t miss twice they get back on track faster than they get off.

Missing your habit once doesn’t affect your long-term progress no matter when it occurs, so keep at it. Don’t try to be perfect as no one is perfect, so don't go in with an all or nothing mentality building a habit.

Do plan to fail but take some time to evaluate what will keep your habit from becoming a reality. Be sure to plan to bounce back quickly and get back on track?

4. Focus On A Sustain Pace

Be patient. As we have already stated, it takes 66 days to build a habit, so don't have any false expectations. You will make incredible progress if you are patient and consistent.

Like for me when I started ThisIndulge. I only publish one article a week as I was still learning the ropes and how to write quality articles that are easily digestible for young adults.

Do things you can sustain. It’s always a good idea to start with a fewer than you expected to handle. Patience and consistency is everything.
