Giving up a habit is hard but if you’re determined, here’s some hope. Researchers have identified three things humans need to change:
Autonomy: We need the sense that we are making our own decisions for our own reasons.
Competence: We need the conviction that we have the ability to change and that help is available if we need it.
Relatedness: We need a personal connection with someone who cares and supports the change that we are trying to make.
