How to Train Your Brain to Stop Bad Habits

Edukasistan.com - Hello everyone! Bad habits can shape our lives, such as overeating, social media addiction, smoking, or heavy drinking. Sometimes we do these things without even realizing it, only to regret them later. However, good habits can also be learned and become automatic in our daily routines.

In the book "History" by Richard, he discusses how to change the way your brain works to break free from bad habits and addictions.

The book highlights three key factors: the conscious brain, the automatic brain, and how to activate both to function effectively. Here's how you can change bad habits:

The Importance of the Conscious and Subconscious Mind

According to Richard, there are two types of selves in human beings: the conscious self and the subconscious self. The conscious self uses rational thinking and reasoning, while the subconscious self acts without control.

When we make mistakes, we know that it's wrong, but we repeat it again and again because our subconscious self is in control. To break bad habits, we need to strengthen our subconscious self to become more effective.

To strengthen our subconscious self, we need to convince ourselves that we can change. We can do this by setting achievable goals and reminding ourselves of them regularly.

For example, if we want to quit smoking, we can set a goal to reduce the number of cigarettes we smoke each day until we no longer smoke at all. By doing this, we are telling our subconscious self that we are serious about breaking the bad habit.

Do Not Suppress Your Feelings

Suppressing our feelings can lead to stress and anxiety, which can make it difficult to break bad habits. It's important to find ways to express our feelings in a healthy way.

We can talk to someone we trust, write in a journal, or find a healthy way to release our emotions such as exercising or meditating. By expressing our feelings, we can reduce stress and anxiety and feel more in control of our lives.

Fake It Until You Make It

Breaking a bad habit is not easy, but we can train ourselves to make good habits automatic. We can use the phrase "fake it until you make it" to help us train our subconscious self. For instance, pretend to be a friendly person by always smiling and greeting everyone you meet. Over time, this will become automatic, and you'll be surprised at the results.

In the book "History" by Richard, there are many lessons to be gleaned. One of them is how to change bad habits by activating the conscious and automatic brain.

By observing yourself, you can increase self-control and strengthen your motivation to improve. Why not try implementing the above tips and don't forget to share your experiences in the comment section!
