Bad habits are like a comfortable bed, easy to get into but hard to get out of. Bad habits are enticing. They’re easy to fall into. It’s so easy to start smoking or procrastinate or binge-watch tv shows.
Bad Habits Are Hard To Break
It’s so hard to stop smoking, stop procrastinating, and everything else you’ve grown accustomed to doing. Even though a lot of bad habits are detrimental to your health, it’s hard to change your behavior.
“What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.”1 Corinthians 6:19-20
Bad Habits Provide Temporary Pleasure
Bad habits are so darn good! They often provide short-term pleasure or gratification, much like being in a comfortable bed. It’s that much harder to resist engaging in these activities. That immediate satisfaction feels so good even though we know they’re not good for us in the long run.
Bad Habits Are Familiar
Just like our beds feel familiar and comfy, bad habits can provide a sense of familiarity and routine. You might cling to your bad habits because you’re accustomed to them and you fear the discomfort of uncertainty of change. No one wants to make themselves uncomfortable.
