Throughout the day, we often repeat many of the same patterns over and over again without giving them much thought. Rather than being innate, many of these habits are the result of a learning process. In other words, we must first consciously perform many actions and processes so that later we can do them in a more automated manner. Put simply, the brain stores recurring sequences and movements in what is referred to as action memory, so that the next time we are in the same situation, we can draw on this experience and react in the same way. The more often we perform actions, the better we become at them, as is evident, for example, when learning a musical instrument. Thus, processes that are initially controlled by the conscious mind migrate over time into our subconscious. Once in our subconscious, such processes are then quite hard to remove.
