Sometimes to allow us the room to grow new ways of being, we first have to rid our lives of the weeds that choke our progress. In fact, this is precisely the case when it comes to cutting out bad habits. The good news is that by doing so, we can clear the way for better emotional and physical health.

You may look forward to lazing on the couch, watching every episode of that box set, once the weekend comes. After all, you’ve worked hard during the week, and you feel like you deserve it!
However, binging is a behavior that, in any other context, would be immediately identified as harmful. In fact, while binging a box set may allow you to turn off your mind for a while, the behavior associated with it isn’t so good. After all, eating copious amounts of junk food and moving very little isn’t so good for your health.
Then there is all the sadness and confusion you can feel once you have finished a series, and have to find something else to fill the hole desperately. With that in mind, instead of binging that latest box set, limit yourself to 2-3 episodes in a single session. Your physical, mental health will be better for it.
By this point, we all know that too much alcohol is bad. Not just bad as in ‘oops I’ve fallen over in front of my colleges bad,’ but ‘this could be hurting my body long term bad as well.’
Sadly, just because we know something is harmful to us, does not mean it gives us the strength to stop. In fact, substances such as alcohol are known to be addictive to many. Something that means trying to give them up can be an uphill battle.
Happily, there is a good range of treatment options now available for those suffering from alcoholism. With sober living facilities accessible for those with the most significant problems. Places that can allow the patient to dedicate themselves to their recovery fully, without any distractions and so get the most effective and lasting results.
You may not even realize that worrying is a habit, or that it is something you have any control over. Sadly, worry can be as addictive as any substance. Mainly because it allows us to feel as if we are doing something about the problems we often don’t have much control over at all.
The good news here is that you can give up worrying, although it certainly isn’t something you can do overnight. Instead, it’s about tuning into what is going on in your mind more, and when you find yourself worrying about something, gently directing your attention elsewhere instead.
In fact, by doing this over and over again, you can gradually retrain your brain to assign less important to worry. Something that should also help to reduce its occurrence and how much it dominates your life as you move forward.
