RECOGNIZE – REFUTE – RELEASE – REPLACE – REMEMBER
Ask Nana Anything
Is it possible to break a bad Habit?
Habits, is it possible to break a bad one? Absolutely …YES! The first thing you must do is recognize it. Once you recognize that you have a bad habit or one you are ready to change, you can choose to Release it! First, it is important to know that if you don’t replace a bad habit with a good one, with intention, it will come back. None of us want that, do we?
Therefore, here is the formula; recognize, release and then replace.
Habits can be Broken
Awareness is key and action is up to me. Recognize that habit you wish you break. Choose to release it. Lastly, you want to choose the thing with which you want to replace it. This is vitally important. If we don’t replace a bad habit with a good habit, we will, by law, replace it with another bad habit.
Nature Abhors a Vacuum
Nature abhors a vacuum. Did you ever notice that as soon as you clear off your desk, something moves into that empty spot? I am guessing you said, “yes!” Most of us have had that experience. You may also think about a relationship that you have held on to for far too long. As soon as you let go of that person, you have room for a new love. It is the same thing. Let go of that bad habit and its hold on you. Release it and replace it with a new wonderful empowering habit that serves you.
What is common sense to Nana is not necessarily common sense to others. In this case, it makes sense to me that the only way I can get rid of an old bad routine is to replace it with a new good one. If you want some personal one on one coaching on getting rid of a bad habit, please set up time to work with Success Coach Jan.
I am certainly not making any medical claims; it seems like common sense that if your tummy bloats after eating something you might think about cutting it out of your diet. Unless, of course you like being in pain or you are looking for an excuse not to do something. In that case, go right ahead!!
Rules, Regulations and Respect
My mom was all about rules, regulations and respect. When I was a kid we had Erma Bombeck and Ann Landers, each of whom had a column in the daily newspaper. All kinds of questions were asked. There are no bad questions. Only those questions that have not been asked. Please keep this in mind as you submit your questions to Nana. You can ASK anything!
