Do you have habits that you really wished you didn’t have?
I think we might all have at least one.
When thinking about habits we love to say that we need to break them. In reality when we try to break a habit we are far less successful because that habit is ingrained into our brain- literally! One way we know will increase the likelihood of diminishing that unwanted habit is to replace
So instead of trying to break those habits let’s talk about some ways to replace them.
Here are 5 examples of how to replace a habit.
|Sitting looking at a screen all day ——-> Take a break and go for a walk|
|Comparing Yourself——-> Recognize that everyone is unique|
|Scrolling through social media at night——-> Read a book before bedtime|
|Wanting to lose weight ——> Start wanting to be healthy|
|Dweling on the past and worrying about the future —–> Practice mindfulness, presence & gratitude|
When replacing habits it is best to set yourself up for success by finding a way to remember to replace the habit, adjust your environment to make it easier to do, and to celebrate your successes.
The biggest challenge is sticking to it– that’s where accountability is essential! If you don’t have that person in your life to focus on YOU and achieve your goals I would be honored to work with and be that person.
