3 Reasons: Why You Should Create Habits and Traditions As A Person

Creating habits and traditions is fine. It is even good for you to have these habits and traditions that fit you and your lifestyle.

I already spoke about traditions in the world, but within traditions in the world, we also have our own traditions — as a person. This makes us unique as human beings.

When we celebrate Christmas, as a community, we celebrate it — of course — on 25th and 26th December. But how we celebrate Christmas as a human being, depends on the traditions we have from our parents, grandparents and other descents. These traditions will be given to their children. Until someone decides to change things. Reasons for change could be marrying a spouse who has other traditions that person likes more. I remember I had a concert on Second Christmas Day with my very first orchestra in the morning and then going to my grandparents. It was my grandmother's birthday on Second Christmas Day, so we celebrated her birthday as well.

Now I don’t have that tradition, because I don’t play in my very first youth orchestra and my grandmother is deceased.

Do I have new Christmas traditions? I don’t as we don’t celebrate Christmas (I wish we did, but in The Netherlands we have Sinterklaas)

You can think about any tradition to create or follow. But within these traditions, you can think to have your own traditions on how you celebrate it. And creating your own habits.

Speaking of habits? Do you have habits? If yes, what are these habits? Maybe a brutal question.

A question I got a few weeks ago. It is not a brutal question. I thought about it. I agree you have to think about creating habits for you, your family and so on.

You have to create habits as a person because you have to focus on what you want to achieve in life. If you want to become the best writer in the world, you have to create habits to become one. Habits could be waking up at 6 am, reading books every day for 30 minutes.
