We can all relate to the fact that changing our most ingrained, routine and “bad” habits is a tricky business. If we could all behave in the ways that we know we should, then people wouldn’t be seeking help for their problems, addictions would not exist, self-help books wouldn’t be necessary and I certainly wouldn’t be writing this blog post.
But, as I’m sure you’re all very much aware of, the world is not perfect. We become so wrapped up in our lives that we might not even notice the bad habits forming until they become part of your daily routine. Or maybe you did notice and just didn’t have the motivation needed at that time to make a change.
Altering a habit into a more constructive, healthy one is not always an easy path. But it isn’t an impossible one either. By using concepts established from behavioural science, you CAN learn how to understand and therefore change, your less than desirable habits.
