CHANGE HABITS: Breaking Bad Behaviours

Posted on December 10, 2013



A habit, either good or bad is an automatic behavior that we engage in without thinking. So how do we change it?

Habits are our automatic patterns of behaviour. In this video, Owen Fitzpatrick explains how you can take just three steps towards breaking bad habits and building better habits. Many people want to stop smoking or lose weight. Others want to change how they think and become happier. Many want to change the habits of their organisation to improve how successful it becomes. Habits aren't just external behaviours. They can be internal ones also. For example, The Happiness Habit by Brian Colbert of the Irish Institute of NLP is a great guide on teaching people how to build a habit of feeling happier and more fulfilled.

Mindfulness Meditation, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), hypnosis and Neuro Linguistic Programming are some of the methods you will see described in this interesting video.
