Believe it or not, about 70 percent of our daily activity is be doing by our habit. Habit is routine of behaviour that we do repeatedly and tends to occur subconsciously.
When we wake up in the morning, we do our morning routine like going to bathroom to brush our teeth or go to kitchen to drink a glass of water. Most of that activity we do it automatically, we never think why we should do that, we just do it like normally.
Habit is powerful, it can drive you into a good routine like going to gym or morning jog. Unfortunately, habit also drive you into a bad life like smoking or drinking alcoholic.
Habit also can affect your financial health, saving is a one of a good habit that can improve financial health, you can start like make a rules for yourself to saving.
For me, i make a rules that i always save every money under $2 in my wallet. I don’t even think it anymore, so i just open my wallet and if i find $2 or penny, i just put it in piggy bank. Last time, when I checked it, it already have $1400.
Habit also can be ruin your financial health, one of the example is gambling. I don’t need to explain further about it. It is totally can ruin someone life.
One of the bad habit that i want to give highlights is shopping especially online shopping. Online shopping become hype right now, it is make our life easier, we can buy anything at anytime. Unfortunately, it becomes to easier for us to spend our money too, the barriers for us to check out become nothing.
Most of our buying habit is not because we need that things, we just trigger by the cue for our cravings habit. That is why sometimes we just happy when the moment we buy something, after that we are not interested with the product anymore.
So from now on, when you want to buy something, try to control your desire. Try to find your cue and craving and find another alternative. It is not easy for the beginning, but it is not impossible to do.
