Rehearse your new habit to make it easier to absorb
- Choose a behaviour you would like to make a habit
For example: returning the remote control to the mantle after you have finished watching TV.
- Clearly define when you will practise this habit
For example, write down: After I push the off button at night, I will put the remote on the mantle.
- Rehearse your habit
Sit in the chair where you watch TV. Pick up the remote, hit ‘off’, then stand up and put the remote on the mantle.
- Celebrate, as though you truly practised your habit
For example, give yourself a thumbs-up.
- Rehearse this sequence seven to ten times
You’re training muscle memory and rewiring your brain. You wire in a habit quickly with an effective celebration, so make sure your celebration creates positive feelings within you.
