To change, you have to LET GO of an old belief or habit of thought. But how? I’ve found that the easiest way is to look at something else. We distract toddlers when they fall down and start crying, rather than dwell on the startling event which has disrupted their activities. We try to engage them with a toy or a new goal. Soon, they are happily on their way again. It works for adults as well. You can dwell on what’s not working for you, or you can change it up. Distract yourself. Stir your coffee in the opposite direction or head up the stairs leading with the opposite of your usual foot. Any conscious choice will alter your trajectory.
