7 steps to solve (or create) custom

7 steps to solve (or create) custom
We all have habits, some good and some not so good. It is behavior that we learn and that happens almost automatically. And most of us have a habit we want to break, or the one that we want to develop.

For most people, it takes about four weeks for the new behaviors become routine, or habit. The following steps can make it easier to establish new patterns of behavior.

1. The first step is to set your goals. Especially when you try to stop or stop the habit, you should try to phrase your goal as a positive statement. For example, instead of saying "I will stop snacking at night", said "I'm going to practice healthy eating habits". You should also write down your goals. Doing this paper helps you to do. It can also help if you tell your goal to someone you trust.

2. Determine the replacement behavior. (If your goal is to develop new habits then the behavior of your successor will be a destination in itself.) This step is very important when you are trying to break the habit. If you want to stop the behavior, you must have a superior behavior to put in place. If you do not, the old patterns of behavior will be back.

3. Learn and become aware of your triggers. Behavior patterns do not exist independently. Often, the habit is associated with any other part of your routine. For example, in the example of late-night snacking may trigger a television or reading. You automatically pick up a bag of chips while watching. Many people who smoke will automatically turn on after eating. Think about when and why you do the things you want to stop.

4. Post reminders to yourself. You can do this by leaving yourself a note at the places where the behavior usually occurs. Or you can leave a message in the mirror, refrigerator, computer monitor or some other place where you will see it regularly. You can also have a family member or co-worker using a particular phrase to remind you of your goals.

5. get help and support from someone. It is rather obvious. Work easier with help. It works better if you can form a partnership with someone who shares the same goal.

6. Write affirmations every day. Write phrases or sentences in the present tense (as though it had happened), and wrote it ten times a day for twenty-one days. This process helps make your goal to be a part of your subconscious, which will not only remind you to practice new behaviors, but it also keeps you focused and motivated.

7. Reward yourself for making progress at set time intervals. Focus on your goals one day at a time, but give yourself a little treat in one, three and six months. Gifts do not have to be big or expensive, and you have to try to make something that is associated in some way with the goal. Doing this provides you with an extra incentive and motivation.

Following these steps do not necessarily guarantee success. Depending on this habit may take several tries to finally make the change. But if you stick with it, you can do it. Good luck.
