For a person to stay in good health there are some habits he or she has to change and new ones that they need to form. a good example is for a person who wants to lose weight they have to consider changing from old habits of consuming fats and instead form new habits such as workouts. However, it is important to realize that there are hindrances to habit change and habit formation as illustrated below.
The first hindrance is the belief system on habit formation. There are millions of people around the world who are living in certain conditions of life due to their beliefs. A good example is those individuals who believe that in their family, everyone is fat hence conclude that they are naturally fat and nothing can substitute that. It will be hard to convince such a person to change their habits in any way. Such people have to deal with problems associated to overweight since they stick to the same old bad habits.
There is the need to recognize that the education system is also to blame for failing habit changes needed. The batch of graduates coming out of training are only taught to use the knife. If anything different all they can do is to administer the latest treatment and medications to their patients without the right education on changing habits and good choices as far as healthy lifestyle is concerned. That happens due to the gap in the education system in the areas of wellness, nutrition and good health.
It is also important to know that there is also a technology-based challenge to changing habits. By saying this it does not mean we do not value the positivity that comes to humanity due to the use of technology. However, it is also true to say that the newest technology only focuses on dealing signs and symptoms rather than focusing on the root cause. For instance, when it comes to losing weight, technology rushes to shows the newest ways of losing weight first through surgery, however little will you hear of ways that will reduce obesity. However they do not look at the root cause to obesity and what need to be done to alleviate this epidemic.
The media also hinder the changing habits. The media is known to affect the way we react to changing habits after seeing and hearing things that end up affecting the change needed. The response to what we hear and see is irresistible hence the media is a major hindrance to changing of habits.
There is the need to know that when you find a person who has done what you have been wishing for a long time and healed, it will make you want to follow the same route. However, it is important to remember that it all starts with changing habits.
