How do you change bad habits?

Getting rid of bad habits is a tough task. It needs strong will power firmness of purpose and need to be strongly motivated to do that.  

What I believe, to change any bad habits we need to understand and realize the fact that it is bad. We have to realize first how bad its impact on our life. If we really could realize the fact and make our mind to change it, then it is possible that we could do that.

I have 'nail biting' habit few years back. As it had no physical harm so I did not give it a try to get rid of it. But when I become a mother, I saw that my child was started to copy me. That is when I realize that I have to something. After that I force myself to not do in front of my child. And eventually I get rid of it some months later.

>Determination is very necessary. Otherwise, how much effort you put, how much correction you make it would not work. 

>On any kind of bad habit, you also have to practice a healthy and routine life. It can help you passively to get rid of any kind of bad habits. 

>Self motivation is another necessary thing. You have to tell yourself continuously that you can do it, you can stay away from it. It will eventually established in your mind.

>Make others know about it that you are determining to get rid of it. People around us can give us the help and support to get rid of our bad habit. They will also give a notification if we involve in that habit consiously or uncosiously.

>Set your goal how and when you are going to ret rid of it. It may not always possible to get rid of certain thing which you are doing for years. It takes time. So take some small steps and set your goal what changes you want to see in yourself. It will help you to stay motivated and be in the right path.  

As it takes time and efforts to get rid of certain bad habits. So we have to accumulate the courage to stay motivated and determined through the run. That's the most important thing.


With strong determination, with strong will power and with persistent effort.

It is discipline which can bring your life on track and keep all the bad habits in check. If you derail from the frame of rules in your life, then the negative things and all bad habits will emerge in your life. And if they start consolidate in your life and if you are care-less, then your life will become hell. 

If you are too much addicted to the existing bad habits then try to make your mind strong first. Write down every thing in your note and read that at least 10 times in day, as that will remind you every moment which one is right for your life and which one is wrong.

Make your biological clock correct. That means get up early in the morning and always stick to your scheduled time of the day. Do yoga, that is essential to improve your will power and determination. If possible hit the gym hard and do so cardiovascular exercise. If you love running and swimming , then also do that. Do all these activities at least for 30 days, you will notice that there is a positive change in your life.  So earlier you set this plan for 30 days only, but at the end of 30 days you will notice that you do not have the addiction anymore with bad habits. Also you will feel more energized at the end of 30 days. 

So persistent effort, strong determination, will power and a disciplined life can beat any kind of addiction and bad habits and you can rid of those habits with strong will power & determination.

I can't give you the right advice, because our personalities are different, but I've also had bad habits that were difficult to get rid of at the time, one of which was playing games. I have spent days in front of the PC just to play the mouse and keyboard in the game, and this is a bad habit, both for our personal health, and for other people around us, they will be ignored.

At that time it was very difficult to get rid of the habit, because the facility was in my own house. Finally I chose another activity, I began to leave home and move as a trader. And it really helped, until now I didn't even like the game at all, and I was also a little afraid to try it again, especially now that I already have two children, of course I don't want them to be ignored just because of those bad habits. The point is to find a new activity and adapt it, for sure little by little we can try to leave it even though it is not as expected, at least we must dare to take the right attitude in our own lives.
