How To Break Bad Habits (And Form Good Ones)
Our habits---those things we do consistently every day---are essentially affected by our visualization. Visualization is the way we use our imagination to view the positive and negative attributes of a particular action or object. Positive thoughts about a habit are the reinforcement that keeps an action in our lives. This means that if we visualize the action as bad more than we view it as good, our mind will stop that habit. It's automatic.
The key to eliminating a bad habit is to balance visualizations of what is good about the habit than what is bad about it. This begins by identifying why we do a particular habit, (usually what we enjoy about it) and why we won't it to stop. The next step in the process is to consistently counter any positive visualization about the habit with its negative. As long as we keep the visualizations balanced, the habit will diminish. When this practice is cultivated properly we see these bad habits fall by the wayside and find the liberty to follow the life we enjoy.
