Writing your learning script: Ingraining good and bad behaviours

How to gain more positive skills and unfuck negative mentality (How to level up and train your character part 4)

As a former ABA therapist who is trained and graduated in human behaviour and ABA therapy, psychology.
Rewarding and conditioning good behaviours with desirable rewards can become stale and ineffective.

I.e. Calling our children to table for dinner to be rewarded with foods they like or scolding them if they fail to come when called, does not seem to be winning strategy for obedience nor family time.

As an adult or teenager, we are aware of what makes us unhappy , using pavlov conditioning as an example, we come to realise that we are often stimulated and offered unconscious priming to be accustomed to society, advertising and seek immediate rewards when offered. I.e seeing the sign of MacDonald can make your kid excited, or another example being able to get what you desire when being exposed to an opportunity,…

Body image help, healing body issue with Intuition and the mind part 2; The New Afterthought Episode 3

Welcome friends,
Last episode, We touched on the ideas we feed towards one another and the inclination and adaption of ideas and habits.

Healing body with the mind

We touched on three points, Mind Over Body, Goal Oriented Pursuit and Lifestyle Habits and realised the way we approach the same things could mean different things with a different mindset and attitude, such that an injured man can heal with exercise and an injured man can hurt himself further from exercising by how he views he have to exercise, despite both of the individuals keeping fit.
What can body image do to us?

Some of our eating habits and lifestyle habits became pervasive towards us, allowing no mistakes, and making us hate ourselves, from all the images of "perfect" human beings, and "perfect" lifestyles, that some of us once believed to be able to motivate us, we also realised that in an act to improve our BODIES, we begun being more confused, believing that losing a few pounds would better our lives and that the current state was horrible despite that a few months or years ago, we were doing just fine.
Improving our body image is as much as an inner work as much as it is external, despite mindsets and attitudes, these should not be brainwashed into your mind, you should be convinced, you can change your believes, by keeping an open mind and being more accepting towards others and yourself.

We also realised that an adaption of ideas is usually not embodied and mastered by the immediate implementation and that we, who educate ourselves with different information from different sources will have different solutions, guides and strategies being offered to us.
These can create poor strategies, where a person can be misguided in his diet, exercise and eating habits, as well as, being prompted or encouraged by individuals who may not know better.

We also realised that our eating and activity habits and our attitudes towards our health can attract and repel different people into our life and create likings and dislikes towards one another, making us, choose our friend group or feeling uncomfortable with different people, different eating habits and different lifestyle which defeats the purpose and pursuit of being "Healthy".

From the excuses and sporadic implementations that we blame the lack of will, comes with the change of habits that may be incremental and demoralizing towards oneself. Ironically, creating a greater fixation and body dysphoria if one approaches health differently. Even through one's own definition of being healthy can be the make or break factor of how he approaches health differently.
The resistance of change, and our inclinations, come not from the lack of time nor the difficulty but how we brand these mindsets onto ourselves, "I can't do it, I have no time" , "There is no change to it, I am gaining weight." Where we focus our minds, how we direct our nutrition from a "more vegetables is good" to a "more lean meat is better", to a "I need protein in my life" to a nah, I prize digestion more, I need more fibre.
We are more than often fed with a one-sided approach, being enticed by yes-sayers, and running away from those who beget differently, creating necessary demons that could had beeen helpful to us.

So do we just go with the flow, learn and figure it out?
On the broad aspect of the topic, I cannot say no, but I can tell you, the ideas we feed onto ourselves can become demons or the motivating factor from how you prompt yourself.
By viewing nay-sayers as an individual from his own education and lifestyle habits, we can come to realise, that he or she have the experience of his own life, and is genuinely coming across usually with a positive approach to help. Knowing this itself, can allow us to be more forgiving and accepting and allow us to be stronger and positive despite being with different people and different habits creating our adaptions to find the best ways to stay healthy and increase the capacity to be effortless in doing so.

Despite our food preferences, the way of making food from liquid to solid, the way of presenting food, the way of changing our consumption from snacking to a filling meal and patterns of eating, it is not a one way approach to diet,
neither is it a one way approach to exercising and creating a meaningful lifestyle.

For example, vegetating can be detrimental to oneself when you deprive stimulus and refuse to interact, and yet you can do mindful breathing, interacting with very simple objects to observe and gain new perspective or even meditation that can change your brain waves. Even doing Yoga can be seen as a very simple movement to some, it is when we place our mind into balance and breathing, that we do in fact practice yoga and not trying out some weird movement, we emphasize more control and flow onto our body and can in fact improve our blood circulation despite simple movements.

Just like how some weightbuilders will find no meaning in cardiovascular activities, the other wise is true, and so is yoga, kickboxing and different categories of hobbies and habits. Some of us feel stressed up not having exercise after three days, some of us feel that way when we overeat and spiral us into a tensed like anxiety state. What do we do? Telling us to feel better, won't kick it, but we can work from the bottom up or top down to change our thinking and approach.

So now that I opened your mind to the different ways of lifestyle habits to be healthy and achieve a good mind state with your boy image, where do we start?
How do we find one that suits our needs and preferences?

First of all, you have an intent, and that did not start now, it did not start yesterday. it probably starter a few weeks or even years ago.
Why didn't you execute it? What are your fears?
What habits or things that you do are inhabitng you? Do you know someone similar but is able to have a healthier lifestyle? Do you know a small change that you can implement?

Start writing or think through your lifestyle habits and encourage yourself that you have more than likely tried to practice an act of being healthier, that you were not passive about it, so what are all the excuses of being lazy or scared, you did something.

Even if you really believed you did nothing, there are people who sleep all day, come on, some days, it's us. You are already better than some of us, and am blessed to be active.
