Rewire Your Brain For New Habits

Rewiring your brain, new neural pathways are formed to replace old habits of thinking. This phase is critical, because thoughts lead to emotions, which lead to behavior. To do that:

  • Daily, at the end of the day, list 10 things you’re grateful for. Gratitude can quickly shift your internal world.
  • Let go of your victim story. Remind yourself that you no longer want to be a victim.
  • Choose and test your beliefs daily.
  • Believe in something bigger than yourself. Faith in a higher power can be the antidote to two symptoms of burnout — helplessness and hopelessness.
