A habit can be seen as the opposite of a conscious decision – something we do without thinking, for instance, things like brushing our teeth or looking at our smartphones after a beep.

Given the predictable nature of many aspects of our lives, our brains became very good at habit formation because it preserves cognitive resources; as a result saving energy.
