HABITS ON PURPOSE FOR PHYSICIANS
If you are a physician and you’d like to join the amazing FB group where we talk all things habit change, come on over to BHPG.
Whether it’s intentionally creating habits that fuel happiness and well being, or unpacking things like overeating, procrastinating, overshopping, overdrinking, over-screen timing your life away, nothing is off limits.
“Behavior that is incongruent with the self will not last…You may want better health, but if you continue to prioritize comfort over accomplishment, you’ll be drawn to relaxing rather than training. It’s hard to change your habits if you never change the underlying beliefs that led to your past behavior. You have a new goal and a new plan, but you haven’t changed who you are.” -James Clear

What changed everything for me was reframing my view of the why behind my habit of using a drink, and frankly anything, to change, improve or enhance my experience. In that light bulb moment, my whole life seemed like one big buffering experience. Stress eating to get through charting; snacking while watching fetal tracings; drinking to wind down or socialize; mindlessly scrolling social media or TV; staying up too late shopping online; pressing snooze instead of following through; procrastinating.
