Озвученный английский онлайн текст Habits.
We do not think of each step we take as we are walking down a street. If we did, it would take us a long time to walk even one block. We learn to walk so well by forming a habit.
Much of our life depends on habits. Dressing and brushing our teeth in the morning are habits. Using knives, forks and spoons as we eat is a habit. Turning off lights when we leave the room and waiting for a green light at street corners are also habits. We form a habit by doing the same thing over and over again.
Although habits are very important to us and most of them are good, we may form some bad habits as well. A number of people have formed the habit of standing or sitting in wrong positions. Some people have the habit of biting their fingernails. Some have the habit of paying no attention to traffic lights at street crossings. Some people have formed bad eating habits. A long list of bad habits could easily be made.
If you are learning to do anything new, it is a good plan to make sure you are doing it the right way. It is usually easier to form a good habit than to break a bad one.
