    Reblogged this on Innothink Business Coach. Helping You Look At The Big Picture. and commented:

    According author Charles Duhigg there are three triggers to happiness which work neurologically the same as parking, gambling or brushing ones teeth. First, there’s a cue, or trigger, that tells your brain to go into automatic mode and let a behavior unfold. “Then there’s the routine, which is the behavior itself,” “That’s what we think about when we think about habits.” The third step, he says, is the reward: something that your brain likes that helps it remember the “habit loop” in the future.
