We’re diving deep into the question we’ve all asked ourselves at one point or another: why do we do dumb shit?
Whether it’s procrastinating on important tasks, indulging in unhealthy habits, or making reckless decisions, we’ve all engaged in behaviour that we know isn’t serving us in the long run. So what’s going on here? Why do we engage in self-sabotage?
In this episode, we explore the science behind why we do dumb shit, including the role of our brain’s reward system, the influence of our environment and social conditioning, and the impact of stress and anxiety on our decision-making processes.
We also discuss practical strategies for breaking free from self-destructive patterns, including developing a growth mindset, practising self-compassion, and creating healthy habits to replace negative ones.
So if you’ve ever wondered why you keep doing things you know aren’t good for you, be sure to tune in to this episode of The Strong Life Project. Let’s dive deep and explore the psychology behind why we do dumb shit and, more importantly, how we can overcome it and live our best lives.
