Trying to Change a Habit? Beware These 5 Traps.
They slip in so easily and quickly, it can be hard to spot them.
Be on the look-out for these five popular lines of thoughts:
1. Thinking: “Well, now that I’ve slipped up and broken
my good habit, I might as well go all the way.”
I remind myself, “A stumble may prevent a fall.” Because of the colorfully named “what
the hell” phenomenon, a minor stumble often becomes a major fall; once a good
behavior is broken, we act as though it doesn’t matter whether it’s broken by
a little or a lot.
2. Thinking:“If I really
beat myself up when
I break a good habit,
I’ll do a better job of
sticking to it.”
Although some people assume that strong feelings of guilt or shame act as safeguards to help people stick to
good habits, the opposite is true. People who feel less guilt and who show compassion toward themselves in
the face of failure are better able to regain self-control, while people who feel deeply guilty and full of self-
blame struggle more.
3. Thinking: “Sure, I’m not sticking to the habit that’s
meant to keep me productive, but look how busy I am.”
Working is one of the most
dangerous forms of procrastination.
4. Thinking: “Of course I usually stick to my good habits,
but in this situation, I can’t be expected to keep it up.”
We’re all adults, and we can mindfully make
exceptions to our good habits, but alas, everything
counts. Justifications like “It’s my birthday,” “I’m
sick,” “It’s the weekend,” “I deserve it,” “I’ve been
so good,” “You only live once,” are loopholes,
meant to excuse us from responsibility.
5. Thinking: “I love my good
habit so much, and I get so
much satisfaction from it, that
now it’s okay for me to
break that habit.”
One danger point in habit-formation is the conviction that a habit has become so ingrained that we can safely violate
it. Unfortunately, even long-standing habits can be more fragile than they appear, so it pays not to get complacent.
