I've been thinking about the idea of forming habits. There are habits I want to form, which I have mentioned before, and every time that I do one of them I am stregthening the habit to keep doing. The opposite is also true.
Take waking up early to do devotions and exercise. Every time I don't get out of bed at 6:15, every time I hit the snooze button, I'm just stregthening the habit to stay in bed until 7:40. What I need to do is get out of bed at 6:15 to strengthen the habit to get out of bed early. Eventually it won't take as much effort to do so. Hopefully.
