We can rewire our brains (literally) to take new approaches from the old habits, such as changing our eating and exercise habits, as well as our attitudes in life. These can all make dramatic differences.
My SIL teaches Neuro-Linguistic-Programming techniques. It is quite effective. The basic concept is to just remodel the habitual pathways in the neural system. When we repeat an action (be it physical or mental), we create pathways that then have a lower resistance, causing that same pattern to be repeated. The object of the NLP is to recreate those pathways the way we want them. ** I don't buy into it as heavily as she obviously does, but I have seen some pretty remarkable changes in some people's lives after spending time working with the technique.
