It’s a miss next to the mr

Here goes my personal assessment. Or way out.

1. Identify the behavior to change

Buying and taking OTC pills despite harm.

2. Set up signals with the part causing the behavior

Boredom. Creativity lacking. Unsure of self.

3. Identify the positive intention behind the behavior

Relieve boredom. Relieve decision paralysis. Takes up time. Buying something on special / saving money.

4. Generate a number of possible alternative behaviors which will equally satisfy the same intent

Boredom: Journal or write music or read or visit friends or call friends or go on Facebook or play guitar. Decision paralysis: Make a decision and put it behind you. Gratefulness of having the decision to make. Takes up time: See boredom. Buying something on special: Buy a magazine instead or acknowledge that it costs more than nothing, Buy an ebook. Create a song part.

5. Choose the favored three replacement behaviors

Fav 1: Guitar Fav 2: Write music Fav 3: Learn something

6. Check to see if there is any other internal conflict regarding the change.

Unresolved past. Loneliness.

Chance It

*Not mine

Chance

“In any chance event, when the event happens repeatedly, the actual results will tend to be the calculated, or planned, results.” In essence, this means that repeated actions, over time, will, almost without exception, produce the results we seek.

The meaning of any behaviour or event exists only in relationship to the context in which it occurs.

Every behaviour is appropriate in some context. With a context reframe a person takes the disliked behaviour and asks, “Where could this behaviour be useful?” or “In what other context would this particular behaviour be of value?”

A context reframe leaves the meaning of a behaviour the same and shows how it could be a useful response in a different context.

For example:

A: “I procrastinate all the time; I just can’t get things done.”
B: “That’s a great skill to have; especially when you apply it to overeating – just put off having that second helping. Lucky you.”

Six Step Reframe

The Six-Step Reframe is an NLP technique used to replace an unwanted behaviour or bad habit with a more desirable one – while keeping the benefits, or secondary gain, of the old behaviour.

NLP presupposes that “every behaviour has a positive intention,” and that any undesirable behaviour a person has will also have a positive benefit behind it (often unconsciously).

The Six-Step Reframe uses a mild trance state, negotiation, and creativity from unconscious resources to change the “part” that’s causing the behaviour.

2. Set up signals with the part causing the behavior

3. Identify the positive intention behind the behavior

4. Generate a number of possible alternative behaviors which will equally satisfy the same intent

Slippery doo

Had a slip on the OTCs. Combination of factors… tough too because up until today it was 17 days. Met with Council yesterday. Gave present. Unsure about present. Compared unfavorably.

New faucet, clean bathroom and toothbrush folly. Card no backing allowed for purchase. Prayed for cheap pizza… $2.99 response!!!! Bought 6.

Instagram with Duff 25 likes. Biggest so far. Music going well. Structure good but a bit mechanical.

Filters in Snapseed amazing! HDR and Drama by far favs.

Watched youtube doc last night. Pretty good. Wouldn’t want to do it for a living. Would rather read.

Killer music

Music helps soothe the soul and calm the spirit. Slower beats (80-120) induce the parasympathetic nerve response in the body. Music making is a great endeavor. I enjoy creating very much, although sometimes I feel as though I’m not good enough. I should be thinking: I’m not good enough – yet!

Day One off of Sleep Aid

I’m not sure if taking these pills is part of a greater purpose for me. I am using 20 tablets a day. It is what it is. This morning I succumbed to the craving. I was lying in bed, not sure where to go. Didn’t take the next small step.

Next time: Take the next small step or pray to Jesus for savior – don’t lean on willpower.
