Habits: Creating & Changing

So what we want to do in this section is figure out. Where did all those habits come from? Why is it that I was able to develop all sorts of habits without actually practicing any of them? Where did those habits come from? What is the formula for creating those habits? And how do we break the bad ones? And along the way, in order to figure out how we break the bad ones, we're gonna have to start analyzing some of our own habits. So something you should be thinking about right now is what's a habit that I want to spend some time thinking about today. All right, what are some of the habits that are plaguing me? And your cognitive system is set up in a way that as much as possible, it wants not to think. And what I mean by that is we want to set up our lives. So that is many of the routines that we have in our lives are things that we can do without having to think about them, rather than having to think about every single aspect of your life. So habits make your life worth living without...

habits you really wouldn't be able to do to do anything that you want to do because your life would be totally disrupted by all of the low level little details that that influence most of your daily actions. Okay, so what we want to do is to figure out what creates those habits. Why are they generally good toe have? And then what happens when habits go bad, which feels like a like a Geraldo headline? What habits go bad? But But they do, right? Every once in a while, we engage in a habit that used to be a perfectly good thing to do at some point, and now is not something we want to do any more. Ah, habit is an automatic behavior and what we mean by an automatic behavior. It's sort of thing you're able to do without thinking about it. And not only can you do it without thinking, you often don't even have a memory of having done it after you've completed it now habits. And this is an interesting thing. Habits are actually part of your memory, so we don't often think about habits is being memories. But what habits do is that they associate the environment with the behavior. Now the environment is both the stuff that's physically out there in the world as well as your mental environment, right? So what you're thinking, what you're feeling, All of that gets incorporated in your memory, that associates of that environment with the behavior. And essentially, when you repeat that behaviour in that environment often enough, then you create a habit. Here's the two part formula. I wish it were three. That would be nice and symmetric, but it's only two. This is the two part formula for habits. Okay, You create habits whenever there is a consistent mapping between the behavior and the environment. And then you repeat that action, right. In order to change our habits, we have to become aware of some of our behavior. So what? I want you all to dio. Remember I told you the beginning. Be ready to think about a habit that you're interested in changing doesn't have to be the only habit you're ever interested in changing. But just for the sake of argument, this is what I want you to dio Now. Obviously, we can't go through a full two week period now and generally speaking, what I recommend. So we have this. We have this lovely. Have a diary here in on page six of your packets. Okay, so if you downloaded your packet after you've RSVP'd what I what you want to do is to actually keep a diary for about two weeks and just start paying attention to it.
