Changing Habits with the Chopra Center Perspective

An excerpt from Freedom from Addiction,
by David Simon, M.D. and Deepak Chopra, M.D.

If you drive down the same dirt road day after day, your car will form ruts in the road that will limit your ability to maneuver. Unless you pay attention and become mindful, your car will default to the ruts, and in doing so, reinforce the prior patterns in the dirt. If you want to get out of the rut, you will need to consciously choose another path and reinforce this new path until it becomes your established way of traveling. Similarly, the principles in this book offer a new path to travel – a path to freedom.

Of course, not all habits are harmful. Exercising regularly, eating healthy foods, playing music, doing yoga, meditation, working in the garden, flossing your teeth, and communicating consciously are habits that can be cultivated and generate positive side effects. Some habits have life-affirming consequences, and some have life-damaging ones. Our challenge is to identify potentially destructive habits, understand the needs they serve, and make the conscious decisoin to release them, and then replace them with healthier choices. We would like to convince you to trade your potentially destructive habits for those that celebrate life. We have been exploring the relationship between body, mind, and spirit for more than thirty years. The Chopra Center, founded over a decade ago, provides a place where healing and transformation are fostered. We care for people in the midst of physical, emotional, and spiritual crises. We know the suffering that people can experience in life and the power of the human soul to awaken innate recuperative powers. Click to read the rest of the article >>
