We are creatures of habit. A habit is a regular practice or pattern in our behavior. If done often enough, it could become a routine. When we perform a routine often enough, we could compare this to a program. A program is the automatic performance of a task. We are not unlike computers in the way we give ourselves instructions to perform certain tasks, such as drinking a cup of coffee in the morning, checking for updates on the internet, and feeding the dog. We do these things so often, and they take such a minimal amount of effort, that we train ourselves to automatically do them.
