8 Tricks to Kick Your Worst Thrive Habits

November 13, 2021



These tips for kick-starting your worst (or best) habits might come from the same place as the list of things you hate, but they are actually the things that help you enjoy your best ones. That’s right, the things that make you happiest. Because that’s what makes life worth living.

These are the things that will make you happier.

They are the things that will make you feel better about yourself, and they are the things that will make you live longer. There is a long list of things that we all hate, and they are the things that make us feel like absolute shit.

Well, that was a lot of hate with a lot of little bits of happiness sprinkled in. If you are thinking about quitting smoking, or cutting back on drinking, or eating healthier, you probably feel a little bit better about yourself now than you did a moment ago. But how about you give yourself a break and just quit hating yourself. That probably won't help you quit smoking or cutting back. But if you do, here are the things that will help you get out of your habit.

The most common habit to quit is the one that’s most likely to continue, which is the habit of hating your body.

When we feel like we’ve been failed by our body, we always want to blame ourselves, and in turn, we want to feel better about ourselves. If we have a habit of constantly hating ourselves, then we will continue to feel like a failure, which is how most people feel about themselves.


One of the best ways to kick a bad habit is to change the things you are doing that are causing you to hate your body.

For example, you can make your bed every morning by putting in a fresh one. You can also change your clothes, because the only reason you would wear a pair of jeans is to feel better about yourself.

Changing the way you walk and talk can kick your bad habits, too, since these habits will often be unconscious and therefore hard to change. You can also make it easier to be happy since that is the most important aspect of being happy. This is why it’s so important to practice mindful eating, which is basically “eating when you feel good, eating when you’re hungry.

I know, I know. You’re probably thinking, “but that’s just for people who eat a lot.”

But the fact is, if we’re eating for pleasure and not for hunger, we’re basically giving ourselves a self-reinforcing habit where we’re eating because we feel good instead of because we’re hungry. If we eat for pleasure, we’re more likely to overeat.

It takes a lot of practice to learn to eat for pleasure instead of for hunger. We are so driven by our biological needs that we tend to have our minds made up about what we are going to eat before we even start eating. So it's easier to just choose something that looks good and feels good than it is to practice mindfulness. But it's an important skill to learn, especially if you want to lose weight.
