Visiting this site means that you have the desire to change some habits and this may mark the beginning of habit change. However, although habit change may sound very easy to many people, the fact is that it may be a hard nut to crack. One of the discouraging things you may hear some huge people say is that they are naturally fat and they can never be able to lose weight. You may be shocked to learn that some people believe that cancer is hereditary in their family and thus they can do nothing to prevent it. Some believe that since their mums and may be some of their family members have diabetes, it is not possible for them to avoid the disease. Although this may sound like something that is not real, the truth is that these believes are very common among many people. It is not possible to exhaust the list since it is endless.
You will realize that there are so many reasons people fail to change habits and habit formation. However, there are four major hindrances to behavior changes. The first hindrance is the belief system on the formation of habit. Over the years, many people across the world live under fake illusions such as the ones mentioned before. A good example is a belief that since cancer is hereditary in a family, nothing can be done to avoid it. Although such belief seems to be founded on some truth, the fact is that it can prevent behavior change.
The second thing that affects the ability of people to change is the system of education on changing habit. The modern medical curriculum is purely on how to carry out surgery on a person and give the modern medication and treatment. The professional graduate from college without being taught how to help patients adapt new lifestyles and change habits. Many graduates lack training in important areas such as wellness, health, and nutrition.
The technology has also played a major role in hindering of behaviors change. This is not to say that there are no benefits that people reap from technology. The only problem is that technology majors in helping people solve problems, without getting to the grassroots. A good example is in the event of obesity where the technology focuses on removing excess fat through surgical procedures instead advocating habit change.
Finally, the Media is also to blame. The Media is most important contributor to changing habits and bad habits. It focuses on the two most paramount sense organs which are the ears and eyes. The best thing is that it is never too late for one to change to better.
