How to use "Habituate" in context?

Habituation is the psychological process of getting used to something. It's a natural defense mechanism that helps us adjust to new or unusually stressful situations. Laboratory studies have shown that exposure to a stimulus that is initially shocking gradually becomes less and less shocking, leading to reduced anxiety.

We habituate to things in our environment through a process called exposure. Exposures are either Rewards or Punishments. Rewards are things we enjoy (such as food), and Punishments are things we dislike (such as pain).
