Tip Thursday - Breaking Bad Habits
Breaking bad habits can prove difficult and frustrating. One great tip to use in helping you gain control over some of yours is to use the Strategy of Inconvenience. We are, in general, influenced by the ease with which we can accomplish something. The more convenient, the easier it is to do, the more likely we are to do it. Therefore, by making our bad habits more 'inconvenient' we will be far less likely to engage in them. This may be the first time ever that you can benefit from taking advantage of any inherent laziness! To stop checking your phone all the time put it in a locked drawer. To avoid constantly hitting the snooze alarm in the morning, put your alarm across the room. What's convenient likely gets done.
