How to Break a Bad Habit?

By | December 31, 2008

Every one has some habitual activities that includes good habits as well as bad habits such as smoking, drinking. It is very difficult to understand why we create habits for activities that are bad for us either physically, emotionally, especially when we consider the consequences, but somehow we do. But there are no miracle cures when it comes to breaking a bad habit. Generally most people break their bad habit through the use of an adviser, or expert in their field. So some people hire or read books by nutrition experts to help them improve their diet. Some people watch exercise videos or get a physical trainer to lose weight. Some people join Alcoholics Anonymous. And so on. But an extremely rare one who can able to quit a bad habit without outside persons helps. Here are some tips for who are thinking to quit their bad habits.

First you simply forcing yourself to stop a habit leave you with a void, one that you used to fill with that habit. So if you are the type of person who snacks on chocolate while you watch TV, and you want to stop snacking and lose weight, then if you simply stop snacking, every time you watch TV, So the trick, simplistically put, is to replace your snacking habit with a different, positive habit – even if it’s simply snacking on something healthy, like fruits and nuts. So rather than participating in your negative habit, you’re now participating in a positive habit that is good for you and helps you feel better about yourself. Of course, it isn’t just that easy to do. It will take some time and endeavor, and the right coaching. I do consider that a specialist coach is a must for most of us when it comes to breaking bad habits. And it has to be the type of coach who approaches your habit from a optimistic point of view. One who encourages you, makes you feel good about yourself, and makes you want to contribute in your positive habits.
