Habits have a lot to do with a meaningful life. They change the trajectory of our lives. Good habits influence how we spend our short time and who we become. When we develop meaningful habits, our lives become more fulfilling.

We don’t consciously make decisions about which habits we adopt in life. Rather, most of them grow out of conscious decisions about how to respond in given situations. Often these small, almost invisible choices have huge consequences on our happiness.
