Reality Check
7/22/2007 6:15:33 AM
A habit is behavior formed by repeating the same act.
Many describe a habit as behavior formed by repeating the same act. No matter what the act—good or bad—they say it takes three days to start a habit. 'They' are usually the people who know how to help you quit, for a price.

Certainly, some habits are more destructive. Smoking, drinking, and drugs can all lead to serious physical distress.

What about those less grave appearing habits? Habits like procrastinating or even watching television. How destructive are those?

I used to watch quite a bit of television. I didn't break the habit—television did that. When everything I watched became either inane or sickening, my brain cells packed their bags and left a note on the table next to the remote, where they knew I would find it. The note said they were leaving. I caught some of them before they took off and promised the only reality show I would view would be reality. For me, it was a good decision. I don't miss it and my brains cells have returned to milling about in search of knowledge.

I have a habit of reading after I finish work. I become downright cranky if I don't have my reading time. Some believe that any habit can be dangerous and that may be true. Personally, I could see myself standing on an expressway entrance ramp with a sign that said 'will work for books' before I'd quit that particular vice.

What are your habits?
