4, 3, 2, 1… Break a Bad Habit

To change a bad habit you must replace it with a different habit. Every habit has three parts: cue, routine, and reward.

When you silently countdown from five (cue), take a small positive action (routine), and get a pleasurable feeling of control (reward), you’ve created a new habit loop.

The easiest step

The 5 Second Rule

If you have an impulse to act on a goal, you must physically move within 5 seconds or your brain will kill the idea.

 • Start by counting backwards to yourself: 5-4-3-2-1. The counting will help you focus on the goal or commitment and distract you from the worries, thoughts and fears in your mind.

 • As soon as you reach "1", take a small positive action towards your goal. That’s it.

How To Control Your Life With The 5 Second Rule.

5, 4, 3, 2… 1

That text that you are terrified to send, it was just sent.

That email to your teacher, boss, coach, etc. is now in their inbox.

How does it work? Essentially, when you start counting you allow yourself to stop thinking. You become temporarily consumed in the count and then the moment you reach 1. You have an amazing power to just press the send button, to throw your phone away, to start studying, to get out of bed.

The power is endless.

So try, right here, right now. When you finish counting down from 5, throw your phone away and do something that will make you happy.
