How to get on the habit train

One way to understand meditation is that it is about creating a habit in our consciousness of constantly trying to be more aware.

For example, when we meditate and notice that we have been distracted, we are helping establish the habit of turning our attention back to the object or technique. We are also establishing the habit of equanimity by transforming distraction into its opposite, concentration.
