I like the way it’s flowing now. It makes it more clear to the reader why habits work better than just goals.
Yep, I agree. Your reader follows your thoughts step-by-step, and is drawing the same conclusion as you’re drawing. Feels more engaging, too.
Good work on the “why” in your post. The only point I’d question is “Too much stress can be fatal. So knowing how to deal with problems is literally a matter of life & death.” It feels a little too strong, a little too abrupt. Is this why your reader wants to get rid of stress or does she simply want to get more relaxed and happier? Does she want to feel less burdened by so many problems?
