SWISH SWISH Piano Tutorial - Katy Perry Ft. Nicki Minaj
Can I use the swish pattern (or how to use NLP) to create new habits?
If you don't know the swish pattern, I recommend this video: https://youtu.be/um9OiPaKuqI
Hi, I've known and read about NLP for sometime but never really practiced it. So I'm starting to do it now in my life. I'm having trouble with this anchoring/trigger thing.
I want to create new habits in my life, but I don't know which NLP technique to use to do it (again, I'm new to this stuff, so certainly I don't know many of the NLP techniques available).
Tried many Google on trying to find a NLP technique to create new habits, but only found results on breaking bad habits and making new, good ones, using the swish pattern. The thing is: some habits I want to do, doesn't necessarily replace any bad habits I'm currently doing.
For example: I want to make a breathing exercise that I only have time available to do during my commute to work. So, I want to create this new habit. Generally what I do in the commute to work is reading books or watch video tutorials, which are good habits that I don't want to stop doing. I need to create a trigger or an anchor to make this new habit and remind me to do it everyday and I need to feel good about doing it. I've tried alarms in my cellphone but they didn't quite work, because I'm not always at the same time in my commute to work everyday. I need to do it in a certain place.
There's also this technique of comparing and modifying what you want to do, to something you would like to do. But I don't know if this is "permanent". The swish pattern has this thing that creates an trigger that makes things automatically and you've permanently made that habit stick (which worked really fine for me).
So can you use the swish pattern to make new habits (use the "bad image" as the image of you not doing the habit you want to do versus the image of you doing it) or there's a NLP technique to creating new habits?
