SWAPPING BAD HABITS ?
A bad habit can often be categorised as a negative behaviour pattern.
A routine that helps you to maintain a peak level of energy can help you get the best out of your days.
Part of creating your productivity routine involves removing activities that drain you, and that includes your bad habits
Bad habits can affect you mentally, physically, emotionally and even socially in some cases.
While some bad habits are harder to quit than others, it doesn’t change the fact that you need to get rid of them.
Our brains are constantly barraged by stimuli engineered to make us crave and consume, stimuli that hijack the reward-based learning system in our brains designed initially for survival.
When we tell others about a goal and we do not follow through on it, we are “punished” with shame and a feeling that we let other people down.
While shame isn’t necessarily the perfect motivator, it can be very effective.
If you tell others about your goals, preferably people who will support you – you are more likely to stick to them, since you do not want to have to tell your friends that you failed.
