We all have developed habits, good ones, and bad ones, since the day we were born. Many of us have tried to change habits like stop biting the nails, stop drinking too many soft drinks, start exercising regularly or stop addictive habits like smoking or drinking alcohol. Mostly it is difficult to follow the intentions made and we fall back into the old habits. Why is that?
The answer we find deep inside of our brain. In «The Power of Habit» (Paperback / eBook), the award-winning New York Times business reporter Charles Duhigg explains why we develop habits and how we can change them.
Certain habits can be destructive to our health and relationships. Habits can make the difference in becoming efficient and successful. The right habit can change everything for the better – it can even be a matter of life and death. Understanding how habit works are essential if we want to change our lives in a substantial way.
