Habits and Addictions
Bad habits and addictions can range from holding us back in achieving our goals to being life-threatening and impacting those we care about.
Habits and addictions, except in a few cases, are learned. This doesn’t reduce the challenge in overcoming them but emphasizes that the same mind and body that created them can be used to overcome them. You learned to have them so you can “unlearn” to have them.

The selection of materials you’ll find here cover challenges related to quitting smoking, losing weight, belief change, self-esteem, stress, phobias and many more.
Enjoy the articles.

And does this worry stick with you throughout the course of the day, draining you and making you so tired? Are you then so tired that you want to sleep but can’t because the night time version of your worrying mind now kicks in?

Why do so many want to do the right thing, set their minds on doing the right thing, promise to do the right thing, only to fall back into repeated cycles of the “same ole”–negative outcomes?

One of the toughest things I often hear people tell me is that they have a very difficult time living life in moderation. Apparently, many of them just do not know when to say when! In my article on Portion Control and Learning a Four Letter Word, I discussed how some people have a hard time putting down their weapon of choice (fork) at the dinner table once they start to chow down.
