Everyone struggles with at least one of the so-called 7 deadly sins of lust, gluttony, pride, sloth, vanity, greed and envy. Even with the best intentions and most heart-felt resolutions, most of us slip back into bad habits because these are behaviors and attitudes engraved on our brains. But it doesn’t have to stay that way! Rewrite your internal hard drive with these clever brain hacks.
Lustful behaviors get turned off by convincing your brain that cravings are merely a reminder of how far you’ve come after walking away from a vice. Use a workaround for overeating by replacing thoughts for indulgences with another, healthful pleasure. Cut prideful attitudes down to size by training your brain to seek more knowledge and increase open mindedness. Overcome slothful routines by repeating active tasks until they become mindless. Reprogram your vanity by clearing your mind of narcissistic thinking and taking in a deep meditative breath. Delete feelings of greed and envy by focusing on things you love and practicing the “Golden Rule.”
