Behaviors, particularly those that have been repeatedly practiced and automatized, get solidified via neural pathways. Habits become hard-wired in the brain. As the expression goes, “Neurons that fire together, get wired together.” Creating neural pathways when we execute novel patterns of cognitions, emotions, and actions require conscious and intentional effort. It may feel effortful to try something new when familiar pathways are much easier to access and fall back to.
