Substituting the Old Habit with a New Habit – That’s right, not all habits are bad. You can definitely explore the possibility of changing an old behavior by starting a new one.

 

For Example: You can substitute chewing gum every time you get the urge to smoke. Many people have successfully quit their smoking habit by substituting another one that’s more beneficial for their health.

Take Action: Make a short list of things that can replace your unwanted habit. List the positive alternatives.
