  • Making & breaking habits | Esperanza - Hope To Cope
    place time of day emotional state group of people or set of actions Phone alerts for instance are powerful cues that trigger you to check your messages Each time you hear your phone beep your brain sends out a burst of dopamine that makes you anticipate the pleasure of social contact In terms of an unwelcome habit the cue might be a late night craving that sends you to the kitchen Routine the second stage in the habit loop is the behavior itself the message checking or cupcake scarfing Finally there is the reward Activation of the brain s opioid system gives you a feeling of pleasure and cements your desire to repeat the behavior It s almost impossible to erase a specific dopamine opioid circuit once it s established in the brain We can however overwrite it by substituting a different routine in the middle of the loop This requires paying attention to our patterns perhaps by keeping a habit journal 3 Refine your reward Changing a habit loop also requires an open mind and a willingness to experiment because it can take some time to fully understand the motivation behind certain actions You may think the urge to turn on the TV after dinner is motivated by your desire to hear the news But if you try replacing the TV with the radio both after all are good sources of news and still find that you want to watch TV then something else lies behind your habit loop You may need to experiment to find out what is driving the behavior Is it boredom Loneliness A need to relax Substituting different responses will help you identify what reward your brain is really craving If zoning out to the TV is a stress response maybe a bout of energetic dancing would restore your equilibrium and help you use your evening more productively If you re lonely perhaps calling a friend will provide the same reward that watching TV currently does 4 Give yourself some space In order to replace deeply ingrained habits it helps to hit the pause button in whatever ways possible Steph Habif PhD a San Francisco based behavioral scientist who helps health insurance consumers design healthy lifestyles calls this inserting time and space in the habit loop To overcome TV watching for instance you might set up an obstacle for yourself like keeping your remote in the freezer Having to retrieve the remote creates an opportunity to reconsider your behavior and call a friend instead while your chilled hand provides a tactile reminder of your intention to do something different Once you have a good fix on your particular cue and reward Habif says you need to practice something else every time your habit gets triggered This may be as simple as taking two deep breaths every time your phone beeps and you get the urge to check your messages Or if your habit is having multiple drinks in the evening try to sip a glass

    When you are fighting the weight you have to deal with so much negativity I needed someone in my corner and for me my son was my best weight loss friend Teammates Two years into her marathon effort Rena s son also took an extraordinary step to keep her moving forward Although he was a university student at the time he pledged to give her 20 for every week she was able to shed at least one pound He was determined to help me reach my goal says Rena noting that the offer of a cash reward was a real incentive Money certainly can be a powerful motivator A recent Mayo Clinic study found that people who were paid 20 for meeting a monthly weight loss goal dropped 9 pounds on average while a group not offered incentives lost an average 2 3 pounds According to Kevin Volpp MD PhD director of the Center for Health Incentives and Behavioral Economics at the University of Pennsylvania immediate gratification the cash has way more leverage than potential future benefits like lowering your blood pressure The incentives help to make the benefits of healthy behavior that drive weight loss more salient in the present Volpp says Volpp is also senior author of a study published this April in the Annals of Internal Medicine that looked at how financial incentives worked for solo vs team weight loss efforts When the cash payout was pegged to a team effort participants lost an average of around seven pounds more than individuals who chose to go it alone Competition among the team members played a role the authors concluded However the power of team spirit can be especially effective That was the case with Stan 59 of Chicago At the urging of his daughter Stan signed up for a weight loss challenge on HealthyWage com He says more than 75 teams raced to lose the most weight in three months The prize for first place 10 000 Stan says that compared to his previous weight loss attempts the lure of a big payoff made the desire of losing weight stronger I could lose weight and win money And if I didn t win I would still win because I lost extra weight According to Tricia Leahey PhD assistant professor of psychiatry and human behavior at Brown University there s more at work with team competitions than just dollar signs Her research into weight loss contests suggests that the payoff potential and social support feed each other to create more powerful motivation and commitment If your teammates or partner lose weight they create a positive social influence and thus you tend to lose more weight And if you are motivated to lose weight because of a cash award you may influence others to do the same says Leahey It can create this ongoing circle where they both rely on and motivate each other to reach their health goals Stan s team a group of family and friends had
