A "habitude" is a combination of a "habit" (automatic reaction) and an"attitude" (automatic thought or feeling).
Here's an example of a "Habitude" about Dogs:
"Pat grew up with a dog and loved playing with it. Now when she sees adog, her attitude is to be happy and her habit is to pet it.
However, Mike was bitten by a dog as a child. Now his attitude is that hefeels afraid when he sees a dog and his habit is to cross the street andavoid it." Here's an example of a "Habitude" about Money
Ryan's family encouraged him to save half of his allowance and cashgifts. Now when he gets his paycheck or a bonus, his attitude is that heshould save part of it and his habit is that he has part of it automaticallydeposited into an investment account.
On the other hand, Lacey's mother always took any cash gifts Laceyreceived and never gave her money, even when she promised to payLacey for doing chores. Now when Lacey gets money, her attitude is thatshe fears it will be taken away from her, so her habit is to hide it fromher husband or spend it right away.
