Learn to Break Bad Habits
What is Buffering?
Do you binge-watch Netflix, scroll on your phone aimlessly, or eat a bunch of potato chips until they’re gone? Chances are that you have done some or all of these things because most people have!
These habits are called buffering. Buffering is human nature’s way of giving into our urges to make us feel good by doing something that takes little to no effort.
Buffering can prevent you from reaching your goals, make you feel guilty or anxious and contribute negatively to your general wellbeing. So, how do you stop buffering?
Steps to Stop Buffering
- Know what your urges are. Do you eat greasy food when you’re tired, skip the gym when you work late, or disconnect from your friends when you’re stressed?
- Allow your urges to be present
- Don’t respond to them
It’s no simple feat to overcome your urges. It takes practice and patience. And the more you practice, the easier it gets. Just know that you can absolutely feel tired without picking up a slice of pizza on the way home, go to the gym after working late in the office and say hi to your friends when you need them most. You just have to train yourself to choose the healthy habit over one that will give you instant gratification.
