Episode 2: Bad Habits
“It’s interesting how difficult it can be for me and for other people to give each other honest feedback.” - Hailey
“Have somebody tell you something that you might not want to hear, but you're going to accept it.” - Ronnie
Welcome back to The Mind Games Podcast. Today’s episode is about our negative behavior patterns. It’s very common in this speed-living world to have bad habits and not notice it by ourselves. We know it’s not easy to have knowledge of your bad habits: sometimes it involves bringing other people in, and finding ways to break them and turn them into something positive. Ronnie and Hailey will share today what you can do when you find yourself doing a bad habit, the difference between actual relaxation and distracting yourself.
Stay with us in this episode as we find out why asking your loved ones for feedback can be an amazing way to grow, discover how they see you from their perspective and use the things they think you could improve on yourself. Honesty is the key to breaking old habits.
