The Habit Game: Winning Against Bad Habits

Get ready to play and win the habit game as we delve into strategies for overcoming bad habits!

As we settle in - my friends in the chat - Say Hello - where you are and confess what is a habit you have that you would categorize as bad?


When I was a kid my Saturday Morning Ritual was watching cartoons, now my Saturday Morning Ritual is to take time for me.  To reflect on the past week and set strategies for the week ahead.

  • “Two heads are better than one”  That is why we join together as a supportive community to support our intentional growth.

  • A special place where you can celebrate your success and grow from challenges.

  • Keep you accountable and committed to goals and feel supported along the way

  • Develop and hone your self-awareness and Adventure Mindset

  • Overcome obstacles and challenges that keep you from reaching your potential

First, we have a ritual - Brain Body Connection, Success, and Setbacks and then more on TOPIC of THE WEEK  followed by planning for the week ahead

Brain Body Connection -

Movement is considered the human being’s first language. Movements strengthen the neural pathways between the brain and body. Learning, thought, creativity, and intelligence are not processes of the brain alone but the whole body.

Movement Exercise -

Importance of Community -

  • Support and Safety

  • Connection and Belonging

  • Influence - Community can influence and motivate us to invest in our well-being and bring positive change.

  • Learning

  • Acceptance

  • Sharing

First Up - Let's take a look at the past week

Success - Share Your Non-Scale Victories

Journal Exercise -

What habits contributed to my victory?

Pitfalls - Let's let go of the pitfalls

we can learn from them but we don't want to hold onto them

Journal Exercise -

What habits do I have that might have contributed?

The Topic of The Week- Breaking Bad Habits

I am guessing that by now you have heard of the Habit Loop James Clear talks about it in Atomic Habits BJ Fogg talks about it in Tiny Habits.

Cue - Routine - Reward

So for instance its 9 am and you turn on youtube and watch this live stream.

Cue: Time

Routine: Livestream

Reward: Your favorite part of attending

Ok, you want to break a bad habit.  Now if you have been around for a minutes you know I like to think small.  The first question I will ask is what habit do you want to break?

Is it small?  Can you be more specific?

Next up the Cue

Remove, Avoid or ignore

When you can’t change the Cue

Change your ability

Time Required

Money Spent

Physical Effort

Mental Effort

you can’t because something is happening that is more important - this is really hard

Change your motivation to participate in the habit

I do this by reducing stress, having great alternatives, etc.

other options

swap the habit

swap in a limited amount

work on identity and beliefs

We Are Not Failing We Are Planning

What's the Plan for the week?

Any Challenges?

Any Outings?

Weather things?
