Identify The Bad Habits

Identify The Bad Habits

First, get specific. Name the habit you want to eliminate. When and where do you do it? What triggers the behavior? What patterns do you notice?

For example, identify that you bite your nails mainly when bored or anxious, often while watching TV. The habit may stem from perfectionist tendencies. Knowing your habit inside and out is critical.

Habits form solid neurological pathways in our brains through repetition. Even when we want to stop, the wiring kicks in almost involuntarily. To disrupt the cycle, you need to be intentional.

Also, please recognize that you likely continue the habit through sheer force of habit, not because you rationally want to do it. Understanding the science behind your behavior puts you in a problem-solving mindset.
