Interrupting Your Habits

We humans are creatures of habit.  And our habits operate a lot like computer programs – they run almost all of our behavior automatically or semi-automatically, without us even really needing to think about it.  If you’ve ever driven half way to work and suddenly realized that you don’t remember your trip so far, you’ll know what I mean.

Each time we run a programs (habits), they get stronger and run more independently.  That’s very convenient on one hand, but it also gives them a lot of power over us.  Every time a sight, sound or feeling triggers us, we respond automatically on cue, like Pavlov’s dog.

How’s that working for you?  Are you driven by bad impulses and habits that prevent you from being the best you can be?  Today is the day to start thinking about your bad behaviors before doing them.  Break the cycle!  Ask yourself why you’re doing it.

Even just thinking this starts to weaken your negative programs.  Don’t let your bad habits keep carrying you along without any opposition.  Once you’ve interrupted them often enough they’ll be so much more powerless and easier to resist and overcome!
