MECAHNISM OF DEVELOPMENT OF HABITS When you learn something, your brain makes connections that create pathways for neurological activity. When you routinely perform the same actions, your brain learns this pattern of behavior and sets up a pathway. This pathway is a more efficient way for the brain to process the routine, as opposed to a new series of discreet tasks. That is a habit. They are from repeated behaviors, responses and thoughts.
