Section 1: Introduction To The Course

Find out why this course is just what you need to make the changes you've always wanted for your health and happiness.

About Me

Before we start learning, this is a short video outlining what you can expect from me and the course.

Section 2: An Introduction: Habits, Compulsive Behaviours and Addictions

This lecture contains some helpful downloads that will better equip you for kicking habits and making the changes you want for your life!


The first lecture starts with learning all about what a negative habit is and some examples of them.


Here we take a look at what a compulsive behaviour is and how they affect our lives.


So what exactly is conscious willpower and what role does it play in tackling negative habits, compulsions and impulsions.

Section 3: Common Problems and The Limitations of Willpower

Take a look at the surprising results of a 2009 survey which held a group of 30 year olds and asked them what they believed to be the most common problems they faced.


Although willpower can be a great source of strength we learn why it has limitations and why we need to plan with strategies and other techniques in combatting habits and compulsive behaviours.

1 question

According to a 2009 survey, what are the things 30 year olds reported as being the things they most wanted to cut down on or stop?

Section 4: Mindfulness

This is the first of two lectures devoted to the practice of Mindfulness. The downloadable resource will give you an introduction to Mindfulness and how it can help us.


The second lecture on Mindfulness contains a download on Mindfulness exercises for you to get started on your Mindfulness journey!

Section 5: All About Habits....

We learn how habits are formed and that they are born out of repetitive behaviours that we perform without being aware.


We explore when is a negative habit a problem. When do we know we have to address something that might be bad for us or cause problems for people around us.


We take a look at how we start effectively getting rid of all those negative habits we would rather be without.


This is a technique that is commonly used to address getting rid of a habit or an unwanted behaviour.

When Does A Negative Habit Need Addressing?
1 question
Section 6: All About Compulsive Behaviours...

Compulsive behaviours can be a problem for all sorts of reasons, but how do we know when we need to start making changes so that they don't make our life difficult or cause us anxieties.


We learn about the mechanism of habituation. We'll look at visualisation and implementing strategies where you can delay the urge of compulsions.


This is a technique that explores the idea of changing the details or certain urges and compulsions so that they limit their control over us.


This lecture give a brief overview of OCD and the vicious cycle of anxiety it causes.

Section 7: Impulsive Behaviours

So when is an impulsive behaviour a problem? It's a tricky question because for a lot of us, some of our best memories in life are when we are impulsive. This is about knowing when to act on impulse and when not to.


We'll take a look at strategies and techniques we can use to deal with impulsions and impulsive behaviours.


Take this self assessment and find out just how impulsive you really are!

Dealing with Impulsive Behaviours

Section 8: Substance Dependency

A substance dependency is't just referring to alcohol and drugs. Caffeine, nicotine and pain killers all come under this category.


We take a look at how when we are tackling a dependency that we need to tackle it from both a psychological front as well as a physical front.

Section 9: Conclusion

We hope you've enjoyed this course on tackling negative habits and compulsive behaviours.

We'll recap here and look at what we've learned throughout the course and where you can go from here.
