The Sunnah is the way of life of Prophet Muhammad, God bless him and grant him peace. Muslims strive to follow the Sunnah in everyday life. For example, they worship as Prophet Muhammad, God bless him and grant him peace, worshipped, eat the way he ate, solve problems as he did, care for the family as he did, etc.

It was the record of Muhammad's behavior and teachings.

Is hadith the same as sunna?

If the hadith is authentic enough and reliable in the Rijal scholars' point of view then yes, any hadith that have been narrated from the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) or Imams or companions are considered as traditions or Sunna , but since both Shia and Sunni agree that there are dozens of fabricated and unreliable hadith even within the authentic resources, then one can not interpret just any hadith to be the Sunna. additionally it has been proved that there are many innovations in Islamic jurisprudence and laws entering Islam during the caliphate of 3 first caliphs so their acts or narrations can not be taken as the real Sunna because the Sunna is supposed to be the acts and words and life style of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and anything in contradiction with that shouldn't be considered as The Sunna.
