Weekly Cup of Joe - Episode #30 - Breaking Habits
Read the transcription for this video:
So whether you're just trying to stop smoking, you're trying to stop looking at your phone every time it dings, whether it be for Facebook or Instagram or whatever it may be, get those notifications, to stop eating late or sweets late at night, or could be a health related thing that you're trying to break or the bad habit you're trying to break whether it be being in a bad posture on the computer all the time or on your phone to standing with your knees locked out, it could be anything. The biggest thing is you need to be consistent, but first and foremost, you need to be mentally and cognitively aware. So using mirrors helps a lot of time to go correct it. So having mirrors around and working on that, but if you're trying to smoke that obviously doesn't really matter as much, but I'm going to put two books below that I recommend that you read, that will help with that one by Charles Duhigg.
And I can't think of another one, but the book is called Atomic Habits. And those two books will be down below, highly recommend reading those they'll help, maybe get you motivated, help find out ways to be consistent and better ways to be mentally aware and cognizantly aware of what you're doing and habit you're trying to break. So I wish you good luck. If you have any questions or any other health related questions, maybe PT related or not please don't hesitate to give us a call at (630) 892-8003. And we look forward to seeing you next week on your Weekly Cup of Joe. Bye.
