Many of us have bad habits that get in the way of our lives but good habits can be the key to making improvements and living the life you truly desire. Some habits are good habits that we develop and use to move forward. Other habits that are poor habits are the ones that hold us back from happiness and fulfillment in our lives.
A bad habit is often just a negative behavior pattern. Examples of this may include: overspending, procrastination and not doing things in a timely manner. These behaviors don’t get in our way because they are not good habits but they are things that hurt us when we do them. However, if you replace these bad habits with good habits you will find yourself in a much more relaxed state of mind.
One of the most important things about habit formation is to make sure that you help as many people as possible who are going through similar things as you. When young kids are growing up you can read books to them about how to resist peer pressure and overcoming obstacles. If you show them that older adults have overcome these habits too, they will be more likely to do the same. Many parents are not giving their children enough credit when it comes to good habits and habit formation.
One good habit for someone who is trying to get rid of bad habits is to limit or eliminate junk food. Even if you have a sweet tooth, you should refrain from eating sugary foods. This includes junk food such as candy, chips and cookies. Instead, you should try to eat a wide variety of fruits, vegetables and grain products.
As children grow up they begin to acquire new bad habits that are formed from bad memories they had as a child. For instance, they may associate bad behaviors with having to clean their room, which is just one of the many bad habits. If you want to kick your bad habit of procrastinating it is important to get rid of this behavior. Getting rid of this habit will make getting organized a lot easier.
Remember that your success depends on being able to replace bad habits with good habits. It is best if you start out with one area first, such as getting rid of your procrastinating habit. From there, you can move on to getting rid of other bad habits. When you do this you will find that you will be more successful in your efforts to achieve your executive control.
