What is a habit?
The concept of habit – means an action in which you do not think about what and how to do. In the beginning, in order to create a habit, a constant, deliberate repetition of one or another action is necessary. Next you can no longer hesitate to perform this function. For example, when you are learning to ride a bicycle, you are thinking about every single aspect of riding: balance, pedaling, steering wheel, turns, brakes and the like. When you have already mastered this skill, you drive at the expense of habit.
