If you find yourself falling into a bad habit, it’s time to act. Whether it’s a vice, an unhealthy habit, or just pushing snooze too many times in the morning, it’s time to make a change. Today, we’re going to talk about curbing bad habits, and promoting good habits. Without further ado, let’s delve into tactics to changing habits, as presented by NutraBulk - your bulk natural health supplement provider.
Habits can be hard to kick. In the case of smoking, a habit can literally be addicting. The key to kicking a bad habit may just be replacing that habit. Let me explain...
First things first, address your habits. Take note of bad habits to which you succumb throughout the day. Are you hitting snooze for the first 30 minutes of your day? Do you spend a few hours on the couch propped up in front of the tele every night? Do you pour yourself a cocktail every day after you get home from work? Regardless of the bad habit, the first step is to identify it. Easy enough.
Next, it’s time to analyze the pros and cons of your bad habit. That’s right, the pros as well as the cons. A bad habit is a bad habit because it offers you benefits (or pros) that you like, but it has consequences (or cons) that outweigh those benefits. Make a list of the pros and cons that come along with a habit.
For instance, if you drink soda, you enjoy and benefit from the taste and the caffeine pick-me-up that it offers. These are the pros of drinking soda. However, soda is bad for your health. It damages your teeth, it can lead to diabetes, and it can cause obesity. These are the cons of drinking soda. Make a list of the pros and cons of your bad habit(s).
Now, it’s time to get crafty. Strive to replace your bad habits with another activity. Your goal is to replace the benefits, or pros, of your bad habit, while getting rid of the cons. Let’s take the soda example again. If you want a tasty beverage and a caffeine boost, you can switch to tea. Find a tasty tea that has enough caffeine to give you that pick-me-up you desire. Tea has the benefits of good flavor and caffeine, but it isn’t riddled with ingredients that hurt your health. By switching from soda to tea, you’ve replaced the pros of your bad habit, and tossed out all of the cons. You’ve turned a bad habit into a good one.
You’re liable to fail as you strive to switch a bad habit with a good habit. It happens. It’s human. We aren’t perfect. Remember that you’ve made major strides toward your goal. If you slip, use that slip as a reminder that you’re working on something hard. You’re making changes in your life. You’re putting in the effort. If you fall off the horse, don’t beat yourself up. Just get right back on that pony and keep on truckin’.
If you follow these steps, you’re on your way to turning a bad habit into a lifelong good habit.
