How to break bad habits


A research conducted at a hospital in Boston aiming to make the workers there have healthy eating habits and cut out the consumption of unnecessary products like fast food and soft drinks by placing the sodas in one refrigerator and placing bottled waters in different refrigerators yielded the following result. The consumption of soft drinks decreased by 11.7% while consumption of bottled water increased drastically by 25.8%. It can be concluded that unhealthy habits can be influenced and broken by our environment.

How does our environment influence us as individuals? Our environment changes the way we behave and choose. For instance, a person cannot be expected to behave in the same way he does while he is in a church or religious setting as he does while in a public place. Another example is our preference when we want to grab coffee. We immediately choose the well known coffee places with brands not because of their coffee having better quality, but because we see the brand everywhere.


To develop good habits, we must create reminders where they can be seen easily. For example, if we want to make a habit of reading books before going to bed, we must place the book on the bed after making it so when we go to sleep we are reminded of the book we wanted to read. To break bad habits, therefore, we must do the opposite. Place the thing you want to break your habit from out of sight and with obstacles. For instance, to break the habit watching too much TV, place it away from the front and unplug all the cables and wires so the next you think of watching TV, you will be reminded of all the effort you have to put in. changing environments is also a good way to break a bad habit.

  3. Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter
    and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and
    screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell
    someone! asmr 0mniartist

    articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything.

    However think of if you added some great graphics or videos to give your posts more, “pop”!

    clips, this blog could definitely be one of the very best
    in its field. Fantastic blog! asmr 0mniartist
