How To Break Bad Habits – New Psychological Discovery

January 17th, 2014 by Kennedy

After my performances at events, particularly if I’ve been performing after dinner at corporate events, I’m asked questions about using my psychological know-how in ways that are helpful in every day life.

One popular one is about breaking habits. You want to stop smoking, you want to stop biting your nails – I personally like to click my ankles (yes, I’m attractive!). So how do we do it?

The ‘human nature’ way of doing it, as our instincts tell us, is to focus our attention elsewhere. Keep our minds occupied and therefor we won’t do ‘it’.

However that doesn’t seem to work.

The latest research I’ve been reading from J Quinn tells us we should do the opposite.

Instead of ignoring, pay close attention. If you bite your nails, keep a vigilant eye out to catch yourself doing it and consciously think ‘NO I WON’T DO THAT’ every time you have the urge.

What you’ll be doing here is dealing with your habit and re-programming your brain. If you were to just ignore it then the pattern would still exist.

So go fix yourself.

Kennedy was very professional, really entertaining and completely different to what we have booked in the past in terms of an after dinner speaker and entertainment. The performance amazed the whole audience and really lifted the spirits in the entire room in time for our formal proceedings.I would definitely recommend Kennedy to anyone looking for corporate entertainment.

What a fantastic night’s entertainment Mind of Kennedy provided. Some of the stuff he did is still being talked about at our company days after! Make sure you book him for your corporate event; you won’t be disappointed!

Absolutely spectacular show! Never seen anything like it. We were all mesmerised from beginning to end. I can highly recommend Kennedy’s show to anyone looking for entertainment for a party, wedding or corporate event. He really was outstanding and kept us all laughing & on the edge of our seats all night!

(Feedback about our ruby wedding party last night) – Kennedy was absolutely fantastic. Not only did he work the room really well, and include people from different parts of the room, which is so important, but also he was an absolute delight to work with before, during and after the event... no trouble at all and completely accommodating. The act was tremendous and I love the idea that all our guests are sitting at home today over the Sunday papers, saying "how did he do that?!" I would have no hesitation in recommending Kennedy to anyone I know. Best wishes and thanks again to Kennedy for entertaining all our guests so well at our party. Jane & Pete Bradshaw
