What's Yours?

We all have our bad habits.  Some are easier to break, while others seem to have some sort of control over us, like a monkey on our back.  Some of them can be a risk to our health like smoking or over eating, while others can be just annoying or unsanitary, like biting our nails or cracking our knuckles.  Some might say they can be all the above.  Bad habits only prove one thing... we are human.

It's never too late to try to break ourselves of whatever we consider a bad habit and WebMD has some great tips and steps on breaking those habits.  What's nice is they break it down into 3 simple steps that include 1) make it conscious, 2)  put it in writing so it really sinks in and 3) bait and switch.  So while we are making ourselves conscious of our bad habits, we can put it in writing and then find something to replace that bad habit when the urge arises.

While many, including myself, state that old habits, addictive behaviors, are hard to break, sticking to these 3 Easy Steps to Breaking Bad Habits can really be the push we need to move forward with change.

Have a terrific Tuesday!

  1. Okay! This is obviously a good time to evaluate my not-so-good habits and make the necessary changes. Thanks, woman!
