How to Avoid the Same Ill Behavioral Patterns Easily

Behavioral patterns are not easy to change. To break a bad habit, you can try these steps: 

  • Define the behavior you want to change.
  • Identify the triggers.
  • Deal with the triggers.
  • Develop a substitute plan.
  • Change the larger pattern.
  • Use prompts.
  • Get support.
  • Support and reward yourself.

You can also try changing your beliefs. Since patterns are a result of our beliefs, you can get out of them by changing your beliefs. 

It’s important to start with a lot of motivation and dedication. You can try to start with small changes that don’t have a severe effect on your routine. 

You can also try removing yourself from environments or social groups that encourage the behavior. 

You can consider alternate, more productive behaviors to replace maladaptive ones. It will take some practice, so it’s important not to slide into avoidance. 

You can enlist support to help you to continue to consolidate and internalize the changes.
