We don’t change our lives through wishful thinking, though it can help, a little. We change our lives through opening up our ingrained habitual patterns to the fresh air. Here’s three new habits that, in practicing, can help disrupt our unhealthy ones. Ultimately, the goal is to be free of all such routines—as Pema says, we greet the sun in the morning simply because it feels natural, and wholesome, to do so.
