8 Ways to Break “Bad” Habits

Humans are creatures of habits…

It begins with self analysis; discovering the core of your emotions, correcting improper thought patterns, developing a healthy perception of ourselves, those around us, and life in general.”
 Dr. Robert Hudspeth~
Things you will need:
  • Honesty
  • Blue Pen
  • Notebook/Journal
  • Openness to learning and growth
  • A healthy perception of yourself
  • Positive Affirmations
  • Awareness of thoughts
  • Supportive friends and family
Step One: Acknowledge the habit you are in the process of overcoming.
Physically writing down the old habit in a journal or notebook.
Step Two: State 10 reasons why you are freeing yourself from this habit. (Write in blue ink)
Example: If I no longer “insert habit” i will have more time to spend with loved ones.
If I no longer “” I will have more time to be productive.
If I no longer “insert habit” I would be more confident.
Step Three:  Write 10 new POSITIVE habits as if they have already manifested into your life. (Write in Blue ink)
Examples; I am so happy I “insert positive habit”
“I am so glad I am at my goal weight!
“I am so energized because I eat healthy foods.”
*I am grateful that I only have habits that serve me in the most positive way.”
Step Four: Eliminate the words “try” “can’t” “need” “I will” “I want” and “I’m going to”  from your vocabulary completely.   By using phrases such as these, you are actually sending a sense mediocrity into the universe. And we all know whatever you send out into the universe you will attract.
 Step Five: Transition your thought process away from doubting, hoping and wishing and turn that into absolutely KNOWING!
 The mind cannot depict the difference between imagination and reality. That’s why it is so important to take at least 5 to 30 minutes daily visualize yourself as if you have already achieved your new positive habits.
Step Six: When you feel negativity clouding your mind use statements that provide encouragement, emotional support and or motivation (basically positive affirmation, see examples above.)
Step Seven: Surround yourself with people who are rooting for you.
Step Eight: ALWAYS celebrate yourself, every milestone is important!
 
Keep in mind there’s no right or wrong ways, you create the rule.
“My habits begin and end with me.”
