Want to break a bad habit, like that 3 o’clock cookie?
Here’s an interesting video from Charles Duhigg. Learn the power of habits and how to break the bad ones!
So, according to Charles Duhigg, it’s possible to break a bad habit with a little bit of analyzing and of course, will power. But maybe, once you’ve analyzed the what and the why of a bad habit, you won’t need as much will power to quash it!
If it’s snacking habit you are trying to break, don’t worry; you aren’t alone. One way I avoid snacking on cookies regularly is to replace my cookie with something healthier like fruits. Fruit will give me the satisfaction of munching and sweet flavours. Or I try to drink more water. My weakness is the ginger molasses cookie from Starbucks. To help me get over that habit, I try to avoid Starbucks or when I’m there, I get something sweet and spicy like chai tea!
Everyone has their different ways to deal with habits. Charles Duhigg has another way of dealing with bad habits. If it worked for him (he was able to lose weight 12 pounds by kicking one bad habit!), it could work for you and me!
