Why is it so hard to change the habits?
Maybe you think yourself as a failure not being able to change your habits and keep them, but this is not true, it´s all biologically as many things that we are struggling with. I always go back to the evolution when I ask myself the question why we act and behave as we do. And most of the time the answer is that we needed it in the old times for a reason and survival. What happens when we get a habit is that the routine is giving us a reward. The routine or the act gives us a reward and having a reward-feeling is releasing endorphins and we like that as humans, to feel good. Actually our brain is craving that. Even though maybe the habit is bad, let´s say eating a lot of sweets, there is a reason why we eat it, and it gives us a satisfaction, maybe energy, filling an empty space in our lives or something else, it doesn´t matter, the reward is something that will increase the “feel good-feeling”.
