Habits can be helpful or hurtful. Many of my daily habits help to promote recovery on autopilot. Everything from making my bed in the morning and feeding my dog and reading my daily devotions with my first cup of coffee. I used to think these were the signs of a boring life, but today I realize that my former highly impulsive behavior was just trying to protect it’s place in my life. My life can be highly fulfilling and exciting without the chaos of impulsive behavior.
