Don’t get into the “habit” of emotional struggle

Whether it’s parallel parking, dialing a phone (do we still call it dialing?), blow drying your hair, or using chop sticks, in order to ensure efficiency, our brains were designed to be quite programmable. Unfortunately, anxiety and depression, over time, become programmed “habit-loops” in your brain.

Regrettably, our brains were not designed to differentiate between constructive, healthy thinking and destructive, insecurity-driven thinking—that’s your job. All habits are learned (yes even anxiety and depression which are habits fed by our doubts, fears, and negative thinking) and all habits can be unlearned. How? One healthy thought at a time.
