When we think about changing habits, the temptation is to focus on what we want to stop doing or start doing, not on what we will gain from the change. This puts the negative behaviour at the forefront of our minds, together with the feeling of deprivation or denial that goes with ‘giving up’.
Instead, we need to flip the focus onto the benefits of changing our habits and take steps towards the new, positive behaviours. Check out our latest client handout from Sarah Bolitho which explains three things you want to be, and three things you want to do, to create successful change. What a great way to look at some ‘better’ habits.
