Habits that heal

From the October 2021 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Originally published in French.

Do you know the phrase “Life is nothing but a series of habits”? One time, my husband and I had rented a car for a week in a country where people drive on the left side of the road. The turn signal was not on the left side of the steering wheel where we were accustomed to it being, but on the right. It took a few days for us to stop pressing the windshield wipers on the left whenever we needed the turn signal! Furthermore, when we got back home and went to drive our own car again, we found that we had already gotten into the habit of looking for the turn signal on the right. We both had to laugh at how quickly the habit had become ingrained.

In those cases, we had to obey the rules of the road. So the adjustment we needed to make took  place very quickly.

But what about habits that we should abandon, but of which we are not aware?
