Regret owns us right after being done with that old habit that seems to be impossible to fly away from our lives. The automatic process that starts, involuntarily, to move our bodies to do things that we would never want to do is just unbelievably daunting. Thinking of myself, I will always look at those things that if I just could get rid of, it would make me a much better person and therefore everyone else around me. Kindness, cruelty, happiness, sadness and feelings in general are surprisingly contagious. Believe it or not, our habits shape our feelings and thus our obligation to make the world a better place starts from our mere habits. Shocking huh?!
So as my wife and I were watching a talk, the speaker poured out what to be the long-awaited simple yet enough answer to the question about how we can stop our bad habits. It’s very basic; DON’T HAVE A B.L.A.S.T! Stay away from Boredom, Loneliness, Anger, Stress, and Tiredness. Our brains usually take us back to our comfort zones when we’re in one of those five states and bad habits tend to prosper in there.
Bottom line is that we have to promise ourself to always keep it busy with good deeds, accompanied by beloved ones, control its temper, remind it that there’s no room for both life and stress together, and refresh it with new experiences every once in a while.
