By Reem

When you decide to quit a bad habit, that habit may have ruined your life completely. Smoking, swearing, overspending, excessive drinking are all examples of bad habits that can affect our lives. Fortunately, it is never too late to change. Here's how to break bad habits once and for all.

1 Fine Yourself

This is a harsh punishment, but will benefit you the most. We, the people, refuse to lose money and try our best to gain more income. This is why fineing yourself can motivate you to quit your bad habit. Further, you can also pay $1 to your friend for every penalty you make.

2 Investigate Reasons

Write at least 3 reasons why you want to quit your bad habit. List some positive reasons, which will motivate you to make the changes you want to make. You can also practice visualization and mindfulness to picture your future self, a girl who triumphed over her bad habits.

3 Try a 30 Day Challenge

Challenge yourself to avoid your bad habit for 30 days. See how many days you can stick to the challenge. If you had a cheat day, write it down on the calendar so that at the end of the challenge you’ll be able to figure out how many times you broke the promise. Be patient because quitting a bad habit can be hard, but with constant practice and determination, you’ll kill it.

4 Announce Your Will to the Public

Let the people around you know that you’re destroying your negative behavior. Surround yourself with positive people who will motivate and inspire you to reach your goal. Ignore the naysayers because they’ll do anything to put you down and make you feel bad for the things you are most passionate about.

5 Don’t Give up

I know you’re aware that you shouldn’t give up, but sometimes you need a sincere reminder. You might fail a thousand times and that’s completely normal. What is not fine is giving up and letting go of your need. Know that at the end, after many obstacles, it’ll be your own fault for not getting back up.
