Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.

One Response to “How to Change a Habit”

    My comment is intended to be useful, not a rant, but I’ll start with a kinda-rantish comment: This book is written by a journalist who has taken scientifically established tools, and re-framed them and put his name on it. I hate it when writers do that, it’s selfish.

    The area of science is generally referred to as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and is useful for changing behaviors, thinking patterns as well as emotional distress such as depression or PTSD.

    I would stick with the tools professional use, not journalists. Here is a good example of a core tool for changing behaviors and emotions: http://iveronicawalsh.wordpress.com/2012/04/15/the-abc-of-cbt-the-starter-exercisehandout-to-catch-your-negative-thoughts/ It’s called the ABC exercise.

    Your welcome.
