The close living among householders during the coronavirus lockup is revealing bad habits in inglorious technicolour - if not in ourselves then possibly to those who share our space with us. Criticism of others, whining, rage, yelling at a partner, the kids or pet, procrastination, overreacting, mindless viewing, overspending, violence, worry, stress, addictions to drugs, smoking, porn, alcohol, overeating etc are bad habits that can be replaced.
While it may seem extreme, it really is worth exploring our relationship to the seven deadly sins according to religious teachings of Pride, Greed, Wrath, Envy, Lust, Gluttony, and Sloth, which are contrary to the seven heavenly virtues of Faith, Hope, Charity, Fortitude, Justice, Temperance, and Prudence.
Now is the perfect time to observe and assess our own behaviour and to break any bad habits that inhabit us.
