All of us have some or the other habit. While some habits may be good, some are detrimental to one’s physical, mental, and emotional health, and sometimes even for relationships. If a child has a bad habit, say like chewing nails or not eating properly, the adults around constantly remind the child to change the habit. However, this may not be the case for adults. First, it could be difficult for others to know about the bad habit. Second, it could be difficult for an adult to accept advice. However, in spite of all this, if you are serious about breaking a bad habit, then you can consult a life coach. Bangalore, Chennai, Mumbai, and other cities have certified life coaches who offer such consultation. In fact, many life coaches in India offer personalized consultations.
Here are a few tips that you can practice to break a bad habit
Stay away from things that trigger your bad habit. If you’re trying to break your smoking habit, then stay away from your normal smoking areas or from friends who smoke, till you are able to control your impulses. If you have a habit of staying online in social media all through the night, force yourself to turn off the internet during your bed time.
Choose an alternative
To keep your mind occupied and to stop it pining for the bad habit, you need to occupy your mind with some other activity. If you are trying to control your weight, but can’t stop indulging in your favorite snacks, there are a few things you can do. Enlist the support of a close friend or relative who will help stop unwanted eating. Or, you could do some other activity when your mind goes back to food.
Consult a life coach
In cases, where the habit is seriously hampering your peace of mind or that of your close ones, then you should think of getting professional support. A life coach does not advice, but listens to your problem. The life coach then tries to identify the root cause of the problem, and suggest the best ways to overcome your bad habit.
