Visiting this site means that you have the desire to change some habits and this may mark the beginning of habit change. However, although habit change may sound very easy to many people, the fact is that it may be a hard nut to crack. You may have heard some people claim that losing weight is practically impossible for them because they are fat naturally. Although cancer is believed to be hereditary, some people believe that they will have the disease at some point in their lives since it is in their family linage. You have also probably heard some people argue that they do not think that can avoid diabetes because their loved ones have it. I know this may sound absurd, but the truth is that these are the things that are in many people’s mind. Actually, the list is huge and disheartening.
The truth is that so many things prevent people from changing their habits and habit formation. However, there are four major hindrances to behavior changes. First, many people fail to change because of their belief system on the formation of the habit. The truth is that so many people allow illusions like the one above control their lives. For instance, they believe that cancer runs through their families and they can do nothing to avoid it. Such believes hinder behavior change.
People are also reluctant to change due to the system of education on changing habits. The modern medical curriculum is purely on how to carry out surgery on a person and give the modern medication and treatment. The professional graduate from college without being taught how to help patients adapt new lifestyles and change habits. By the time they leave college, the graduate has no training in basic areas such as health, nutrition, and wellness.
The technology has also played a major role in hindering of behaviors change. This is not to say that there are no benefits that people reap from technology. The only problem with technology is that it never helps people to get to the cause of the problem, but only solves the problem. For instance, technology entails undertaking a surgery to remove excess fat from the body; instead of finding why the person is obsessed in the first place.
The last one is the effect of Media of changing habits. The Media is most important contributor to changing habits and bad habits. The focus of the Media is on ears and eyes which are significant sense organs. The fact is that changing things is not too late.
