Ever try to change a habit?  It can be like trying to move a huge boulder up a steep mountain.  Sometimes it can be easier than we think if we make the change easy.  Dr. Albert Bandura is well known in social learning theory which demonstrates that our behavior is shaped by observing others.  If we can alter our physical worlds in a way that eliminates choices or habits (what we consider to be unhealthy or bad choices) we can change our habits.  It’s like raising children to eat healthy snacks like fruit, and vegetables versus having stocks of candy in the house, or going to the gym on your way home from work before you get home and don’t want to leave again.  What habits a have you changed and how were you successful?
