Break Your Unhealthy Habits for Good

Do you

  • Think that you should change but you don't really feel like it?
  • Let your heart rules your head?
  • Trade in short-term emotional benefits against long-terms benefits (better health)?
  • Overlook your distorted views about the risks & benefits of your unhealthy habits?
  • Value your health but can't walk the talk?

Most people have good intentions but never change or slip back to their old ways. For example,

  • Couch potatoes can't lose weight or get fit
  • Nicotine addicts can't quit
  • Over eating feeds low self-esteem
  • Heavy drinkers can't handle their negative feelings

Changing unhealthy habits is an emotional challenge that
involves going beyond surface change

(gaining knowledge, having good intentions and setting goals) to deep change (explore feelings, views, values and why you really want to change). To break unhealthy habits for good, I will discuss how you can:

  • U-turn your emotional resistance into effective motivation
  • Change your values and put them into action
  • Enhance your ability and confidence to change
  • Prevent lapses and relapses
