I’d say eating Frosted Flakes before bed every night was a bad habit.
So was drinking that second 20 oz coffee every day.
As was binging 3+ episodes of Lost on Amazon Prime every night.
No matter your best intentions, you may find yourself battling with persistent unwanted behaviors with respect to:
Despite your best attempts to over-correct your behaviors – like diets or abstinence periods which may work for a temporary period of time…
…you always seem to revert back to that familiar feeling of powerlessness.
In today’s episode, I’ll break down the 3 stages I typically go through in order to create long term shifts of my persistent unwanted behaviors:
- Compulsive: Being controlled by my behavior
- Controlling: Over-correcting my behavior to reestablish a temporary sense of control
- Integrating: Forming healthy new behaviors that serve me in the long run
PS - And yes, I did get my Frosted Flakes, coffee and Lost situations under control. ;-)
