Do you have a bad habit that you have been trying to break free from but unable to do so? Bad habits can include cigarette smoking, watching too much TV, nail biting, eating junk food, constantly checking your cell phone, not motivated to do homework, lazy to do chores around the house, not waking up for Fajr salat, poor posture, procrastination, always showing up late, holding on to resentment and anger, etc.
Good news. HijamaHerbs can now help you break your old habits and install new beneficial habits. Utilizing mental techniques to re-educate your brain and nervous system, we can break old habit that you are doing automatically and without conscious thought as it has become second nature to you. And its place, put in a new productive and beneficial mindset that works to help you progress in life instead of putting roadblocks in your life.
Some of the beneficial activities that you perform may have turned to habits such as making your salats, brushing your teeth, fasting in Ramadan have been turned into habits that you don’t have to put much thinking to do them.
On the other hand, why does your mind hold on to habits that are clearly harmful like smoking, eating unhealthy foods or not wanting to exercise? Your conscious mind recognizes these actions as not beneficial to you.
Unfortunately, your subconscious mind which controls 90% of your actions is also in charge of your habits. Your subsconscious mind is neutral. It doesn’t care whether its beneficial or not beneficial to you. It just carries out the action when a trigger is aroused. For instance, when a person gets nervous, that triggers the action on reaching for a cigarette.
Research shows that it takes about 21 to 66 days of repeated action to form a habit. Habits are the brain’s way of helping us by establishing a pattern that neurons can follow. They put us on autopilot. They can be your servants or masters. Most people choose the latter by fostering the bad ones.
You may be wasting time in front of your smartphone or TV screen. Instead of doing your work, you procrastinate until the last minute when you have submit your assignment. So you quickly do what you can but the assignment you submit is far below your potential.
You may be struggling with your weight and health because you can’t stop your bad eating habits. You feel good when you are eating cookies and ice cream but feel bad afterwards. You promise to break the bad habit, but you cannot resist the temptation.
You cannot change something if you can’t admit that something has to change. Small, bad behaviors when piled up can have a negative impact in the long run. Your bad habits can create a downfall in your productivity.
The results that you are reaping today are the sum of what you repeatedly do. If you repeatedly procrastinate and then do last minute work, then in the long run you will be known for turning in shoddy work. If you have been repeatedly eating junk food in the past, you will be looking overweight and unhealthy today.
Habits are difficult to change because they are already ingrained in your system. Doing things regularly condition your neurons to make the action automatic.
This is why your brain does not exert a conscious effort when you perform your morning regimen. If you had made a habit of getting up, making your Fajr salat and doing some stretching exercising, then having a healthy breakfast before leaving for work, these actions will automatically take place without any thinking on your part. And you’ll be reaping the benefits of that good habit.
But if you have been going to bed late, then sleeping on till you miss your Fajr salat, then jumping out of bed late, and grabbing a donut and coffee from a fast food store and dashing off to work. If this is what you have been doing repeatedly for the past few months, then this will become your morning habit and it will have distrausly results on your health and work, not to mention your iman.
Bad habits are like magnets that pull you away from your goals. They slow down your growth. Many people would like to stop them. Despite their best efforts, they are unable to change. Their habits take them to the direction they don’t want.
