Ivan Hernandez Posted about 2 years ago What is your experience acquiring a new habit? My research experience onthe problem of how to generate new habits reside in awareness about old habits. They are based on beliefs that have to be analysed, revaluated , contested, not only by myself but by others in a trustworthy process. I guess that getting rid of old habits is not only a matter of individual choice and effort but also about a social process. Seems that our beliefs are correlated to beliefs of others. New habits are in this way the consequence of social interaction and not merely individual choice and effort.
