Gaining Control Over Habits
Do you recognize any of these patterns:
scrolling/spending time on the Internet, shopping, over-eating, smoking, drinking alcohol, binge-watching, arguing, worrying, shutting down?
Those are just a few of the many patterns we fall into. Whether you realize it or not, our objective is always the same:
Feel Better Immediately
Habitual patterns aren't just what you DO; they are also how you think and feel about things, which also happen on autopilot.
Your habitual patterns are a way of avoiding discomfort.
Do you have a tendency to judge yourself for falling into habitual ways of being that you know, deep down, are negative, harmful, or unhelpful? Many of our habits formed because initially they helped us to avoid discomfort. In some way, they made us feel better, if only momentarily.
Typically, we have a natural inclination to avoid distressing emotions. That's where habits come in. The urge to do a habit happens so quickly that we mistakenly believe that it is beyond our control. But, it's not.
Once you learn to navigate your emotional experience with more ease and equilibrium, you will start to see your habitual patterns from a whole new perspective - one in which you have more control and a deeper understanding.
