Don't waste your energy with negative thinking, about yourself or others. Your words say a lot about you and shape your day...if you find yourself complaining or gossiping, begin to stop and think before you speak. Try to eliminate the negative talking from your life and see how much lighter and happier you feel!

No good data for or against taking vitamins, experts say (but suggest a few negatives to some vitamins). Instead aim for a balanced diet.

In its draft guidelines, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force said that in some cases, certain supplements, such as beta carotene or vitamin E, may actually do more harm than good. Instead of focusing on supplements, they recommend that people focus on the health benefits of a well-balanced diet instead.

The incredible power of habits

Everyone seems to be talking about habits. And with good reason: positive habits make life easier, while destructive habits hold us back. Whatever your goals in life, mastering your habits is a vital step towards success.  

So, what exactly is a habit?

Habits are formed -- by the brain -- over a period of time. They feel natural and automatic, leaving us to focus elsewhere. Life would be tiring and dangerous without habits. However, this process sometimes goes wrong.

Anything can become a habit. The brain does not gauge whether it is beneficial. This leaves us prone to forming bad habits. We still act on them, despite knowing how irrational they are, because habits are compelling. This is their greatest strength... and biggest drawback.

Cue, routine, and reward

To change your habits you must first understand how they work. Typically, habits unfold across three stages:

- The cue. Habits are 'triggered' by something: a location; a time of day; a thought, emotion, or action; or even certain situations, objects or people.

- The routine. Habits usually involve a sequence of steps, chunked together, flowing from one moment to the next.

- The reward.  When finished, your brain checks to ensure everything is as expected. This ‘end state’ lets us know the habit has achieved its aim.


How does this look in real life? Here is a simple example: the ‘boredom eating’ habit: 

- The cue. You're in the office, it's the afternoon, and you feel increasingly bored.

- The routine. You stop what you are doing, walk to the office vending machine, and add the correct change; you select a chocolate bar, take it from the machine, and unwrap it; you then eat it while walking back to your desk.

- The reward. You are now ‘enjoying’ the chocolate bar. 

In this example, the cue could be boredom, the office, the time of day – or a combination of the three. Note how this habit involves a routine of seven small actions, each one unfolding without much conscious thought. Even the reward is carried out mindlessly. Habits are a kind of autopilot. 

Changing habits means understanding how they flow from cue to reward. The infographic below will help with just that.
