What rituals have you incorporated into your life? Chances are you have several of them and there’s also a good chance you don’t really talk about them with anyone. Maybe it’s the way you put your socks on or maybe it’s simply saying grace before a meal.

Rituals clearly serve a purpose, yet we don’t usually take time to examine them. We just have them.

    How do you discern the difference between “rituals” and “habits”? I consider rituals to be religious/superstition based, to which I do not subscribe. I consider other repetitive behaviors to be habits. Simon Cowell has incorporated the habit of climbing a tree everyday to escape the stress of adulthood, and to indulge his inner child. Serena Williams bounces the tennis ball 5 times because she superstitiously believes the “ritual” it will bring her luck. Lady GaGa routinely starts each day with positive affirmations, a common habit of successful people, not a ritual. Mike Carruthers has developed the “habit” of wearing his watch on his right wrist as opposed to his left. Birthday celebrations are annual “rituals” rooted in religion/belief in gods. I do celebrate birthdays, however, not because of religious beliefs, but because life should be celebrated.

    I strongly suspect the word “ritual” is erroneously being used interchangeably with the word “habit” for the sake of putting a different spin on an already overly saturated market of self-help books.
