Episode 232: Overcoming Bad Habits (Redux)

Just in time for the new year, we’re re-running the second part of our 2018 short series on habits. We hope you find it helpful!

Last week Janine and Shannon talked about creating helpful habits. This week, we look at the other side of the coin–letting go of bad habits. Shannon shares her view that all habits (even bad ones) are the result of good intentions and talks about how we can use that information to kick bad habits.

Discussion topics include:

  • The inherent value of bad habits
  • Peeling back the many layers of a bad habit to find the need it fulfills
  • Figuring out how to fulfill the positive intention in a more beneficial way
  • Being kind to yourself as you work on letting go of bad habits
  • Creating a helpful habit that is incompatible with the bad habit
  • The double-edged sword of habits becoming so automatic
  • Becoming conscious of your unwanted habits and breaking their spell
  • Shannon’s three-step process to letting go of a bad habit
  • Remembering that your bad habits don’t define you
