What would you say if I handed you the simplest recipe ever to break bad habits and replace them good habits?
Would you say, “GIVE IT TO ME?”
First, you need to understand that you have etched your bad habits into your brain with years of endless re-enforcement. Your habits are so automatic that stopping is going to be difficult unless you distract yourself.
It’s simple; decide what your new behavior is going to be and DO IT instead of the old.
If you didn’t get to the gym this morning, go during lunch? Eating too much bad food? Then fill yourself up on good. Are you watching too much television? Take a walk or read a book.
All you need for success is to catch yourself just before executing your old bad habits and do something different. Do it enough times, and the bad habit will be gone forever.
